Hello, welcome to one of my favorite times of the year, Halloween!  I love all the ghouls, goblins and all things spooooookkkkyyyyy!  So I have chosen to do a canvas of a spooky halloween scene.  All the chipboard is from Southern Ridge Trading Co.  If you play along at the SRTC Blog Challenge you could win a $20 shopping spree at the Southern Ridge Trading Co shop!  It is the perfect challenge,  Fall!  Hope you play along for a chance to win some wonderful product.

Soooooo here is the project I did, started with a wooden frame, painted it with white gesso then turned it around to make a shadow box type frame for my scene.  Here is my layout before I got started.

I used black acrylic paint first and covered the frame then added Dylusions paint by Ranger with my fingers and just smeared it.   The colours I used were crushed grape, lemon zest, black marble, squeezed orange and white linen.  Then I added Old Silver Inka Gold to give it a distressed look.

I added Dylusions White Linen paint to the spider web and squeezed orange to the fence.  I added Black Sand Texture Paste from Finnabair, Art Extra Vagance, for the ground, black marble Dylusions paint to the trees and DecoArt-Snow Tex to the house.

I used lemon zest Dylusions paints for the moon and added glass and metal beads to the center.

I filled the littles bottles with fake blood and Dylusions cut grass paint and water for my blood and gooooo!  I added the little skull and bones I purchased from the dollar store.  The little bottles themselves are from Tim Holtz.  I used pop up springs for cards that I purchased from Close to My Heart, so the bat would pop about.  The bat and the ghosts are painted with Dylusions black marble and white linen paints.  The Keep out take is from the Dollar store.

I added the black cloth mesh, flours and orange embellies from my stash.

Finally I added cut grass and squeezed orange Dylusions paint on the sentiment and cut grass on the  house.  Voila, my spooky scene, hope you enjoy and thanx for stopping by.  See you next time.
