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".
