Mucha Inspired Halloween

It's that time of year again! the days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler. Halloween is right around the corner. I finally got a little quality time to myself in my studio this weekend, and I've loved every second of it!  

This "Mucha Inspired Halloween Piece" is a mixed media on a 6 1/2 x 15 illustration board. As you know I love all of the Graphics 45 papers and have incorporated the "Rare Oddities Collection" in my art.
I've also included metal gears from Tim Holtz and other metal charms to fit my theme. For depth I used Golden molding paste, and a two part crackle, painted into the design, and a lot of ink line work. finally I sprayed it with a workable fixative and used a matte varnish to finish it off.
