October Challenge #2 - Artsy/Mixed Media at Oscraps— https://oscraps.com/community/threads/october-challenge-2-artsy-mixed-media.34156

I love playing with paint and gesso but I also love anything spooky. This challenge gave me the opportunity to do both.

I started making the scene first by blending a resized paper with the girl's face over the outdoor one using Lighter Color Blend Mode. After I added the books, bottle, and candlestick, I reduced the vibrance, saturation, and opacity. I used several of Florju's gesso bushes to add additional textures to the page. For one brush I added the script layer style.

OMG Chris - this is fantastic. You need to print this and hang on the wall. Braxton will love it, I'm sure.
This is so cool! Congrats on the Standing O!
Love the blended face and the wonderful moth.
