Easy Halloween Crow Collage Tutorial

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 it is translucent.
Let dry.
Here is the super easy part....these crows are from the dollar store...they are black silhouettes.  There are other choices 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!
Come to the party...At Whipperberry friday many cool halloween ideas
