5-for-5 for Halloween...PAINT!

Welcome to Day 1 of our 5 for 5 Halloween Blog Event. Today our theme is "Paint". We are all sharing a project where we used paint. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Halloween Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments.
So here is my little canvas wall hanging featuring "paint".

First I painted my canvas black with a watered-down solution of black acrylic paint.  Then I die-cut a cloud border and laid it over my canvas.  I started sponging a bit of light gray moving the die-cut down a bit at a time.  This gave me my eerie looking clouds.  Next, I added green paint at the bottom with a fan brush (you know, just like Bob Ross used to do when he created his little trees-LOL!) and then I drew in branches with a big Pitt artist pen. I lightly sanded some Glitz die-cuts and glued them to the piece.  Lastly, I made a hanger out of ribbon and attached it to the back of the piece.
Here's the list of the other 4 girls participating.
I hope you'll return tomorrow for another day of inspiration when our theme is "Purple".


  1. Love your canvas! The background is awesome - love how you created the clouds!

  2. Bob Ross trees ... LOL! Love them!! Love the paint details on the clouds!!

  3. Cute owl wall hanging to watch over your room :)

  4. Oh...that owl is trying so hard to glare and be scary, but it is just too cute. :) FABULOUS cloudy night sky!!!
