Halloween Wall Decor
10 x 20 inch canvas
140 lb watercolor paper
Jazper Stardust fluorescent green
Moonlight Duos in Eclipse Black, Nebula Rust, Asteroid Umber, Planetary Purple, and Moonlight White
a black micron pen
I drew a circle in the upper left hand corner of the canvas to represent the moon. Then I painted the rest of the canvas with black gesso.
I created the hill on watercolor paper by using very wet lamp black and raw umber letting the colors bleed together freely. Set aside to dry.
Using the Nebula Rust, I stamped out my bats on watercolor paper and cut them out.
I stamped the house twice on watercolor paper, once in Eclipse Black, and once in Planetary Purple. I cut the black one out whole, and cut out specific pieces from the purple one and glued them to the black one.
Using watercolor paints, I filled in the details of the house, and added the Meer Image witch's hat in the window.
I stamped the cauldron in black and the broom in brown on watercolor paper. Then I added some details to the broom with the micron pen and some yellow paint and cut them out.
I then drew the bubbles with a micron pen, and painted them with green fluorescent paint and cut them out.
Using the metallic marker, I wrote "Happy Halloween" in the top middle of the canvas.
Once the hill was completely dry, I cut it out and glued it to the lower right corner of the canvas.
Next I played around with the positioning and where I wanted everything to go. I glued the bats around the moon, and the house on top of the hill. I liked the way it looked with the top of the house sticking off the canvas a bit.
I decided the cauldron needed some depth. I stacked three little squares of paper and glued them together, and then glued that to the back of the cauldron. I then broke some twigs into about 1 inch pieces and glued them to the canvas to look like firewood under the cauldron. I carefully placed the cauldron so the feet are on the twigs. That and the stacked paper behind it make the cauldron pop off the canvas a little bit. I then glued on the green bubbles to make it look like they were coming out of the cauldron.
I glued the broom to the canvas beside the cauldron.
I stamped the ghost in Moonlight White, and that's it!
