Raise your hand if you love Halloween and all of the fabulous decorations! I have both of my hands raised sky high!
I adore Halloween and go all out with inside and outside decor at my house.
But alas...we haven't had a Trick or Treater in years.... the neighborhood kids all grew up! But that doesn't stop my fun with this holiday.
I am back with another mini canvas that is so easy to create
Let's get started!
Black Ink Pad
Acrylic Paint in 3 colors (I am using Tangerine, Calypso Orange and Chalky Finish White)
Raven coloring page (downloaded from Google Image Search)
Special Tools: Sponge
And here we go....
-using a damp sponge, apply paint (start with darkest color) in a "blotting" motion - - leaving some of the canvas to show through. Repeat with other 2 colors, creating a mottled look
-tape your coloring page pattern to Pumpkin Heads Cardstock and cut out. Use black ink pad to darken up all edges
-glue Raven to your canvas & glue black Dew Drop as his eye
-glue Alpha Glitter Stickers to canvas to spell out "Nevermore" (while these already come with an adhesive back, I added some additional liquid glue since I was attaching to this textured and painted surface)
-apply additional Dew Drops in multiple colors along with sequins in "clusters"
-rub your black ink pad along edges of your canvas for a "finished" look
Your canvas is now ready to display on its own, on an easel or even hanging from a black ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by today - have a creative weekend!
