Horror Decoupage

I had an idea to do tonight's craft whilst doing helping my son do his homework tonight.  He has been asked to do a finger puppet of some kind of character from the Tudor times.  I'll show you that after I show you the craft that it inspired.

It was my next horror costume scrapbooking page:
(All FAKE blood I should add from our fancy dress supplies)

It's a decoupage page, the boy in the front and the hand were cut out and decoupaged:
I haven't cut out the shape of the scrapbooking page yet because the FAKE blood (sorry, it does look a bit too real!) is still wet.

This was what we did for the homework:

I got my son to cut out this image of Elizabeth I.
and then I added some decoupage to it.  After I had done that, I thought it would look good rounded around something, so found a polystyrene cup:
Sorry, these pictures aren't terribly successful. It really does look much more effective in RL.
(..and if I was cutting it out, I would have cut off all of the green, but it was his homework! ;-)

Doing the decoupage on this project is what gave me the idea to do it on my craft tonight.  Glad I did, it makes yet another way of doing a page to add to my Halloween Costume mini scrapbook.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

Thanks, Liberty. Peeling the backs on the sticky pads for the decoupage is what took such a long time! The air was going quite blue! ;-)
