Hanging Skulls Halloween Canvas

Over at It's Crafting Time blog the theme this week is orange, black and yellow, which immediately shouts Halloween given that it's October. I thought I would make a dark scary canvas, with the hanging skulls and the all seeing eye on the bottom bit.

I don't have a walkthrough on this post, I got carried away and forgot to take photo's. So I started off by doing a base coat of orange paint and then added layers of yellow paint, black Dylusions spray & orange drips.

I've used Tim Holtz tissue tape, Halloween stamps, and the Sizzix Graveyard die. Dylusions harlequin and number jumble stencil. 


I painted the tree directly onto the canvas. I love the way it goes round the side.


I used the Crafters Workshop number stencil on the bottom half with black Dylusion spray. Then I decided to paint in an eye. It looked like there was one there, so I went with it! The letters are from Studio G little wooden alphabet stamps. I love these little stamps. I have loads of them.


Will you be getting dressed up for Halloween?

Your canvases are endlessly brilliant Michelle - so much texture, imagination and atmosphere in this. The gravestones are simply wonderful against the textured background! Top sentiment too!
