I know your going to see a lot of Halloween projects this month.
I'd like to inspire you to make a wall hanging.  If you use the MDF board you can punch holes in the top with a Croc-A-Dile and thread ribbon or twine through it to hang it up.
 I used Nija oil pastels to create the base background.  Since they're oil based, you can heat them a little with your heat tool and they'll spread easily with your finger.  I then stamped my image with Black Archival ink. 

The sentiments are from Halloween collage sheets that you can find in the Altered Pages Shop-HERE

The yellow moon was created using Art Anthology lemon tart dimensional paint.  They have partnered with Altered Pages this month. 


I appreciate any comments you'd like to leave.  Please check our blog out every day for tons of inspiration from our wonderful design team!!

You'll be seeing more of me later in the month!  Have a spooky-wonderful month!!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
