Are you thinking of making your own decor items for Halloween? Below are a few items you may want to check out. As well, be sure and check our prior posts on this subject here.
Jules Eickmeier, a Designer for KnK Club and A Cherry on Top, made the haunted house scene shown below. To make this project, Jules started with a front hinged shadow box at Tuesday Morning. She then downloaded clip art for the house and printed it on canvas. The witch and cat are from a vintage Halloween card. Jules tells us, "I used a webbed transparency over vellum paper that I made appear ‘smokey’ with inks. I painted Stickles on the webs and painted the canvas images with Pearlescent watercolors. The ‘tree’ is a branch that has been sprayed with an acrylic sealer and aged with inks. The mini lights are battery operated and the battery pack is mounted on the back of the stand up frame." Thanks Jules!
Another fun Halloween project by Jules is her "Witchy Woman," shown below. Jules says, "She is created out of papier mache dress maker form that stands about 6 inches tall. The rest of her attire is make of left over scraps from other projects like the ribbons and toile skirt that I dyed black with Glimmer Mists new Raven color and added splotches of gold with a Krylon pen. You can see more pictures of Jules’ Witchy Woman on her altered art blog.
