This last month has had me totally inspired to create. First-this cobweb painting. From Christy Tomlinson’s class: Pumpkins and Cider available here. This was the best project ever.
I mean who would have thought? Clear tar gel and black paint. So cool.
The result is very spooky, I think! And it was super easy to create. I think I did it all in less than 24 hours, with some overnight dry time included. I thought about putting a ghost on it, but I just fell in love with the texture from the tar gel just the way it is.
This pumpkin is also inspired by a pair of book text pumpkins in Christy’s class. Love how this turned out too.
Bats! I did some brainstorming for Halloween and decided to try a bat. The large bat is made from book text covered in black gesso and the small bats are left over from a Tim Holtz seasonal pack of grungeboard.
I love the contrast of the white gel pen on the black gesso.
Found a stars stamp sitting nearby so I decided to use it!
and how the canvas started. I love the background all by itself!
And now they are sitting out on the kitchen table.
Hope you are having fun decorating for Fall and Halloween! Happy Monday!
