Mixed Media on Monday
Happy Halloween everyone!
I couldn’t resist making a little project for today that I can display every October with the Crazy Dogs stamp set. I’ve told you before that I love this set, right?
Well the images in the Crazy Things stamp set make it very easy to create seasonal projects all year long. I started by watercolouring two of the dogs and some Halloween images, then cut some text paper to for the background. I’m working on a canvas board for today’s project.
I picked out some Distress Inks to create the background, a simple night sky.
Starting with the grass, I used Peeled Paint for the first layer & Mowed Lawn as the second or shading colour.
Next came the sky. I started with Broken China and I will use it with each layer I add to help blend out the other colours.
Next I took some water and sprayed the background a little to create some texture. I let the water sit for about 45 seconds then blotted up the water with paper towel.
Next I used an old star stencil and some embossing paste at the top of the night sky. I let it dry throughly before glueing down the the dogs.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project, thank you for stopping by the SN blog.
