Day 24 of the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop

Hello there.  It's Day 24 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  That means only 7 more days of projects.  Kinda sad I think.

Today's project is a 8x10 canvas featuring a stamp from Stitchy Bear.

I began by painting the whole thing with Making Memories acrylic paint in Peapod.  I then smeared some Mayco Flat Black acrylic paint strategically around the canvas.  I took my hot glue gun and randomly added some strings of glue.  I then added some creepy cloth while the glue was still hot.  Then, I tore a piece of patterned paper and adhered it with Modge Podge to the right side.  Then the fun started.  I just kept adding things until I got a look I liked.  I added some ribbon flowers, cachabons, gemstones, feathers, and a skeleton.  I cut off one of his arms and one of his legs and glued those in different spots on the canvas.  I did ink him a little with DI Vintage Photo because he was just too white.  The image  is a cute little zombie lady that I colored with Spectrum Noir pens and fussy cut, added some pop dots and stuck her on.

It didn't turn out exactly as I had planned, but it's ok, I guess.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See y'all tomorrow.

  1. I think this is one of those projects you can not plan. The tough part is knowing when you are done.
    I think you did a great job.
