Well, I hope you realise that I am not talking about any strange happenings going on!
With Halloween approaching we hope that the new theme at Try It On Tuesday - 'It's Scary and Spooky!' will get you in the mood for some Halloween fun!
Not that it's fun for me - since we moved to a retirement apartment we don't get 'Trick or Treaters' any more - I used to love having neighbours and their children knocking on the door for their treats!
I am also a bit of a wimp and I must say that some of the Halloween items on sale these days in the supermarket aisles are REALLY scary!
I have made a canvas which may be more fun than spooky!
I started off by using different shades of orange paint rubbed downwards onto the canvas using a baby wipe.
I rubbed around the edges with black paint and added a little softer black to the top. The Tim Holtz spider webs were stamped and heat embossed and I added a small Tando web that I had painted with black at the same time as I coloured the bat from the same set. I had some fibres which I teased to to extend the webs. I had some Tando leaves too, and found a little bit from a Tim Holtz die laying around so after stamping some grasses I added those! I love the idea of the cat who has been spooked by the golden eyed bat!
By the time some of you see this it will have been handed over to my Granddaughter - I hope she likes it but I rather suspect it won't be scary enough!
I do hope that you will take a look at the creations the TIOT Design Team have made and be inspired to join in - just put your fingers in your ears when I come visiting - I may scream!!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
