Frankinella's Workshop for Dream in Darkness Challenge Blog

Today at Dream in Darkness we are celebrating the fabulous freebie given by the awesome Ike of Ike's Art! Visit us to see all the teams amazing makes!  I think Frankinella, who we call Miss Frankie, seems to have some revenge in her eyes against that pesky doctor who created her and her hubby!  So here is a peek inside her workshop where she diligently works on her potions for revenge.

 Her work shelf is made from cardboard painted with acrylic paints. The shelves were put on brackets made from cardboard strips but at the last minute I turned it upside down and now brackets are on top!  Frankinella is colored with Prisma colored pencils, red distress marker is used on her wounds, eyes, shoes, and lips.  Glossy Accents on those colored with red and her fabulous gown and hair.

 Hat, book charm, and zombie pumpkin (making a return from 31 DOH 2014) are made from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paints. The skull and top of arm skelly is made of air dry clay by Crayola brand and dusted with blue Perfect Pearls and some gold eye shadow.

This shelf holds her tube worms again clay, painted, and a tin from a pie embossed to flatten and cut to make a circle and filled with hot glue and worms stuck into it. Two bottles, one with clay eyeballs colored with distress markers and , of course, the other has a "sample" of the doc's blood!  Blood is red nail polish and labels were made with label maker and distressed with distress ink pads. The lovely zombie brain is polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint to make it "zombiefied" looking.

 The bottom shelf is where she keeps her essential item: the Revenge Potion book also made of polymer clay with a cord for a bookmark and words on pages from a label maker.  Her secret essential oil is kept in her special bottle. This was made with beads, bead cap, and bead spacer.

Another view of the awesome image "Frankinella"!

And of course I had to take a photo with some awesome purple glitter candles from the dollar store and in this photo I added her container of purple slime that is shaped like a skull!
Hope you enjoy our day of celebration as much as we did doing it!
Happy Crafting!
