Over at ARTastic there is a fantastic challenge this month. The inspiration painting (Dr Jekyll’s Hideway by Maryanne Jacobsen) has the most wonderful vibrant colors and I just couldn’t resist creating a background with those colors. But it was quite a struggle for me because I don’t have any Halloween pictures. But I took this picture of DD recently and I thought it looked spooky when I saw it. It was really foggy that day and I guess that’s why she looks so pale (as a ghost).
To get some extra points you should include a house, trees and a spooky fell on your layout.
I started out “painting” my background with Aridondack Color Wash from Ranger. To create a tree a used a mask and some dark grey mist.
The house is fussy cut out of a patterned paper.
To create more of a spooky feeling I added an owl and some bats. I made the bats myself, just drawing them on a paper and then cutting them out.
Thank you SO much for looking!!! Your comments make my day!
