Hi Everyone! It is another beautiful day here in the pacific northwest! I wanted to show you how easy it is to create Halloween art!
Above is a collage for Halloween that was soooo darned easy! Let me show you how I did it.
You need a blank canvas (these are often 50% off at JoAnn's)...mine is an 8" x 10". I covered the whole canvas with old papers from books, ledgers, and cream papers.....just torn and modpodged on. I like matte modpodge.
I try to use so different colors of cream/tan...just for interest.
I gave the canvas a coat of orange paint mixed with a bit of water....so it is translucent.
Here is the super easy part....these crows are from the dollar store...they are black silhouettes. There are other choices too....like owls, bats, and more. I just cut a branch from black paper.
I have lots of letters I have printed out....I just type letters in a word program using different fonts and then print out the letter. You could also use letters from books, magazines, or stamp letters on cream colored paper.
I mod podged them all down on the covered canvas.
I then added brown aging ink to the corners, and all around the canvas. I also added brown paint underneath the crows, twig, and letters. I added some doodles with a black sharpie pen, just for fun.
Here is the finished piece!!
I love how easy this was and very fun too! There are alot of cool things at the dollar store!
