Apothecary 'Nightshade' by Kerstin

Hello dear creative friends!

 I know Halloween is over but this pharmacy is open all year round. 
The aches and pains do not diminish with age and 
hardly anyone is spared the trip to the apothecary.

Fortunately, Mother Nature also provides us with plenty of effective remedies,
 so that we don't always have to try to manage with chemical cocktail mixtures.

Drugs can be very healing, but you can also demonise them. 
That were my thoughts behind this mixed media tag with a 3D shelf.

The background were done with chalky, fluid acrylic paint and sprayed on water.
The "Apothecary" word was stamped with black archival ink and highlighted with black embossing powder.

Some close up's

that fits exactly into the  Halloween Multi Frame - Winged Devil & Crypt
in size 120 x 120 mm.


For more depth I glued the
Flying Skull with Bat Wings  to the Multi frame
and added two dried flowers and lichen on grey gauze 

For the eternal light I used a Sizzix Thinlits cutting die from the set 'Regions beyond'

Thanks for your visit and Happy crafting!


  1. Awesome story-telling, Kerstin! Love the idea behind the tag and how you have captured it in all those scrumptious textures and layers!
