A pair of spooky halloween canvases inspired by an article by Jodi Ohil in Somerset Holidays and Celebrations 2010 issue.
These were incredibly easy to make.
I used black apple barrel paint on each 6x6 canvas.
Then I used a white charcoal pencil to draw the background.
I gathered various orange colors from throughout the studio-an orange pastel, indian hue and nickel azo gold Golden paints. And some sakura pens and white gel pens to finish off the look!
I painted the other canvas with various orange paint hues. To get the leaf shape, I sprayed Tim Holtz ink using a real leaf as a mask Then I let the ink dry and outlined the leaf with a black pastel and added a couple of words with a gel pen. One word says “fall” and the other says “autumn”. Voila!
I did have a set of 3 hanging in my studio. But I brought one down to scan and it looked good on the living room wall.
So that is where is currently sits.
And-a colored photo from my 17 year old. Aww. Thank you, Elizabeth!
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
