Spooky Halloween......Boo

Halloween is coming and I always find myself needing more decorations.

So I got inspired by a friend and wanted to give it a go..... And this is what I came up with.

I took a 12"x12" / 30 cm x30 cm canvas and used the back side. Painted the frame with black acrylic paint. Took a cardboard box and teared it apart and took four pieces and glued onto the canvas back. Painted it over with black mixed with blue and on top of the with a mix of black and green.

Found a picture online of a Haunted House and printed it out on card stock twice. Found a spooky moon and printed that out too. Fussy cut the house and the tree. Then I took four elements from the second print and cut those out to create a 3D effect. Glossy accented the window with light to give it some shiny interest to the house.

Cut out the moon... Just loved that picture... Gave it one spritz with a pearl glimmer mist.

Used Iron rod poles with chains from Tim Holtz chipboard pack and the little white scull peaking out from an other tree I cut out is from there too. 

Found a bat template on Martha Stewart's page and cut out some to place randomly on the frame and canvas.

I really like it.
