Raven and Friend Canvas

Art With No Boundaries       October and Halloween  Week 3

We're in Week 3 of our month long challenge here at Art With No Boundaries. It seems there are more than just our team that love Halloween. We've had some wonderful entries already, so we'd like to see more of you hop on our Halloween challenge. Tell all your friends.
The Team has brought you another group of projects to get that scary mojo boiling. Be sure to visit their blogs and give them an EEK!
For this week I've altered a 5" X 7" canvas and attached it to a felt web with some spiders and their silk, very sticky.
I'm still hooked on using napkins and this particular napkin fit into my plans just perfect. It happened to be the whole top of my scene. You know the drill: Peel your napkins down to just one layer and attach to your project with a medium of your choice. I used black gesso on the bottom and sides of the canvas, let all that dry (Drying between the layers is very important).
Chris at CS Designs will soon be releasing this cute digi Raven and the new sentiment. She actually has bone bows in her hair on the digi, but I covered those up with the real plastic bone and bow to keep my deminsion going. I thought Raven needed a midnight garden to stand in so I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I colored Raven with Copic Markers, printed the sentiment, tore around the edges and inked. I attached her skeleton pal and raised Raven up so she would be the stand out.
For just a little more spookiness I used some white pearl paint to smear around the edges. Again after all was dry I attached the frame to the felt spider web. 
This will make a very cute wall hanging in the entry way welcoming guests to the spooky party.
We still have BlackDragon with us as Guest Designer, so be sure to check out her Bride of Frankenstein shadow box and her Spooky book.

Happy Creating--

Love this project, Beverly. Raven and her buddy are such a fun pair and the background of the canvas makes a perfect setting. Beautiful colouring. The spider's web and sticky threads make a fabulous frame.
