5 for 5 Halloween: Haunted House

Welcome to Day 3 of our 5 for 5 Halloween Blog Event. Today our theme is "Haunted House". We are all sharing a project where purple is a main color. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Halloween Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments.

I'm offering this prize package full of Halloween embellishments. I think you will love it. To be eligible to win, just leave a comment on every day of this event and be sure to follow me. I will announce the lucky winner here on Saturday, October 17. 

I made this Haunted House canvas. I painted the top of the background with acrylic paint and the on the bottom I used a stencil with modeling paste then painted it with green acrylic paint and later I blended some darker ink on the grass area with a Big Brush pen to darken the area. I added stars with a stencil and modeling paste on the sky and painted them with gold paint. I cut the witch and moon from a piece of DCWV Halloween paper. 

The bat and tombstones were also cut from patterned paper. I made the house out of 3 pieces of patterned paper and added a Tim Holtz number 31. The door is from Maya Road. I used Black Soot Crackle paint on the door. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch I used with black paper that I covered with Sparkle Mod Podge. The raven, ghost and pumpkins are from the Tim Holtz Halloween Ephemera pack.
