Nevermore - Halloween Canvas

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)
8x8 Canvas
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!
