Halloween Photo Canvas Idea
Sometimes getting inspired comes by my surrounds, art, music, nature and magazines for me! I was inspired by last month's Scrapbook Ect. when I saw a project that was used glitter as a background.
I purchased a small canvas 6x6. Using decoupage as glue, I created 3 layers of orange, lightest on the bottom. I use the glue and glittered each section at a time, and filling in any missed areas before moving on to the next color block.
Using Little Scraps Of Heaven SVG files called Haunted Graveyard. I used the Spooky Tree, Bats, and Tombstone templates. Little Scraps Of Heaven templates can be purchased at : littlescrapsofheavendesigns.com
I used all black cardstock and a scrap of gray to create the tombstones.
After all the pieces were cut, I simply adhered them at different levels using pop dots. I would recommend to use a little bit of added glue to ensure that your pieces stick better since the glitter will coat the pop dots and prevent a good stick to the canvas.
Once complete, I simply added a little pom pom ribbon around the border of the canvas! All done!
Now this little BOO-rific canvas can be displayed using a photo/plate holder.
Hope this inspires you to get creative and add a little Halloween Spirit to a table or your desk!
