Home Decor } Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium by Kristine Mckay

So i'm loving this Halloween line from Echo Park that Kristine Mckay designed for them. It is TOTALLY FABULOUS!! When the UPS man dropped this off I could not wait to tear into it. So after opening it and looking at all the papers I knew I wanted to do a altered home decor project. I grabbed some of my Wendy Vecchi Art parts (Covers, border & bottles), lots of Tim Holtz goodies, and some paint, stain, inks & studio gloss from Ranger and got busy.

I started by using the Claudine Hellmuth Studio gloss to cover the base of the project, then placed my paper down. I did the same thing with the two small bottles in front. Set them aside to dry for a minute. While waiting I used Ranger Jenni Bowlin fountain pen paint to color the stars and the grungeblocks.

After the paper had set for a couple of minutes I sanded the edges then inked with Ranger distress ink (black soot & spiced marmalade) I gathered all my goodies and started placing them down and popping them up. Added a fun black flower that I learned how to make from Tammy Tutterow and I was done. Here are a couple of close up pics.

Supplies used: Echo Park paper (Apothecary Emporium), Wendy Vecchi Art Parts (covers, borders & bottles), Ranger: Distress ink (black soot, spiced marmalade),Jenni Bowlin paint (fountain pen), Claudine Hellmuth Studio gloss, Tim Holtz: Swivel clasps,game spinner,clock,bottle, grungeblocks.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a fabulous day!
