Halloween Canvas

 Happy Saturday to each and everyone of you wonderful bloggy chicas!  How much fun are these simple canvas's made with my cricut Happy Haunting, Distress Inks and Paint Dabbers???
 Start this project by inking up your canvas in fun fall colors....I used Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Wild Honey and Tea Dye....ink to your hearts delight.
 Using a script stamp (mine is from inkadinkadoo) I 'inked' up my stamp with Terra Cotta paint and stamped the script all over the canvas.  Next, I've used some cuts from Happy Haunting that make good 'stencils'...I chose spooky and beware....then using Butterscotch and Terra Cotta paint dabbers I placed them randomly on the canvas.
 You can see I did not try to achieve a 'perfect' stamp or stencil...the randomness adds to the look I was going for.
 This one is my fave....luv that crow.....I then cut my silhouettes from Happy Haunting and glued them in place
 Using a gel medium (similiar to mod podge, but much easier to work with, you can find this in the painting aisle at most craft stores) I 'painted over the entire canvas to both seal and add texture.
On this canvas I've also added a flourish stamp...again inkadinkadoo...to a couple of the corners.

Simple and fun fall decor....I will be doing a class on this one...can't wait....

I will be making kits up for the LSS in instruct at, as well as doing a ustream class on the banner....so excited for all the fun opportunities I have been blessed with....

Happy Scrappin,
