They're Coming Out To....Play!!!



πŸŽƒ Hello!!πŸŽƒ
It's that time of year where all things spooky come out....and this crypt is no exception!! 😱
I'm not a great fan of the Trick or Treat side of Halloween...but it's always a fun time to create. So as we approach the bewitching hour, I'm posting my entry into the
DecoArt Haunts Challenge.


Being totally honest...I'm fairly new to the DecoArt range of products, and only have a few paint colours, and gesso, so I was a bit limited! I will just have to do some shopping in Coventry next weekend!! ;)

 So... armed (bones...armed....see what I did there?!! haha) with a deep framed canvas...I began!



The canvas was painted to within an inch of it's life (on the 'other' side) with black gesso...then randomly 'splodged' with texture paste. I then added some chipped plastic type pieces (tech term!)  to the paste and left it to dry. Once dried I added some cobweb in places for some texture, and painted over everything once again with black gesso.
I painted the skeletons with Titan Buff & Raw Umber... mixed both together for a paler brown...to dirty them up a bit, and drew on some cracks.


The base has had Raw Umber, Prussian Blue & Pyrrole Red paint added for soil and muck...some greenery for bushes and grass...and some plastic pumpkins for effect. The pumpkins had a coat of Pyrrole Red and Raw Umber mix ...and the spiders too! 

The fencing is...sorry...WAS... a Tattered Lace dainty fence...now it's a broken, rusty old bit of fencing, (thanks to Raw Umber and Patina Antiquing Cream...oh and a pair of trusty scissors!!) which I don't think is going to do the best job in the world of holding these crazy bits of bone in their holding!!! Eeeeek!!! 


And there we are!! :)
Not as detailed as I'd have liked, but think I need to invest in some more DecoArt Media yummyness!!  x



Happy Halloween!!
