Your challenge is to create a project based on any of the spooky words you find in our word search! Have fun looking :)
Our super amazing prize this month is sponsored by Grumbacher art supplies! They were so kind to send our design team some products to play with, and they are giving one of our lucky entrants an awesome prize as well!
Now time for my Halloween project. In the word search I found the words skull, purple, orange, and bones...
I had some canvas board laying around so decided to finally put it to good use!
The Grumbacher acrylic paints are so smooth and mix beautifully. I got a perfect Halloween orange by mixing the yellow and red paints and painted over my board. Then I added some paper tape from Tim Holtz "Regions Beyond".
Then I used my fingers to spread around some of the Grumbacher black acrylic paint...
Next I used the Grumbacher Higgins ink to tint my modeling paste (i used one drop of blue and one drop of yellow to make a green). The stencil I used is The Crafter's Workshop "Spiderweb".
Finally I used some Koh-I-Noor woodless colored pencils to color my skull and skeleton images from Tim Holtz's "Frightful" ephemera pack. I loved using the pencils because Koh-I-Noor is actually the very first 'real' colored pencils I ever purchased... probably about 17 years ago. They were great then and still are now!
To finish off the background, I painted some Unity number stamps with Grumbacher acrylics then stamped on my board. I also cut up some purple gauze paper to place behind my skeleton.
Thanks for joining me today and have a wonderful October! Make sure to enter your October project into our MMMC Gallery! You have until October 31st to submit your fabulous mixed media art :)
