Pumpkin Scarecrow & Halloween

Pumpkin Scarecrow & Halloween

This week we have lots to inspire you with
for your Halloween makes and we start
with a project from

Dawn Heald:

I grunged up the Tando Creative Cobweb, 
by painting on a layer each of 
Crackle Paste, 
white Snowflake paint and Starlights Pearl paint. 
Allow each layer dry before adding the next. 
Finally I dabbed on Gunmetal Stickles.

I made a background board for the Web to go on. 
I did this by cutting a square of thick cardboard recycling a delivery box. 
Next I glued on layers of torn book pages. 
When dried I sanded the edges, 
then added stencil patterns with Grunge Paste. 
I put Grunge Paste around the edges too.
When dry I painted a thin layer of 
Starlights Orange Oxidised and Antique Pink paints
all over the board, allowing the book page printing to
show through in places.
Then I rubbed Alchemy Wax Lavender over the Grunge Paste.

To go with the Web, I made a spider with hat from Air Dry Clay.    

I painted the spider with Black Gesso and his boots and hat with Liquid Pearls.  
Also dabbed some Liquid Pearls and Gunmetal Stickles to the Spider   

To finish I glued the Web, Spider and Embellishments 
to the background board and added some 
Stickles Glitter Glue lines for pieces of Web 
and some black gems.
