Happy Halloween

Ok I know I’m very late in getting this out, but I had to show you this Mixed Media canvas I made for Halloween.

This all started with this spooky picture of this witch I saw on Pinterest.Vintage Halloween picI’m sorry but she freaks me out with her eyes – drilling into your soul!  Maybe not.

So I started with her and this idea of “The Witching Hour” and there she was waiting in her backyard for the hour to come.  I found the light pole and fence on my Mini Monster Cricut cartridge.  The spider web was done with a paste compound and a stencil I made using overhead plastic papers and my Cricut.  The netting stamps are black embossed.  The paper is from a retired Stampin up set.  The skulls are Stampin up Witches Brew washi tape.  The flowers are from my stash – actually the large rosette I made in another post.  The spider is made from a black button and some black edging.  I stamped all kids of Halloween stamps I ad for the background and then using blue acrylic paint to give it the dark midnight effect I painted it and then wiped it away with a paper towel.  Such a great effect.

I really love how this one came out. I’ve realized that as long as I have a them and stick to a color palette my canvases are nice.  I’m still working on transferring this technique to cards.  We’ll see, we’ll see.

Have a Magical Day!
