Halloween Canvas using ATCs

Hi Everyone!  Sorry I missed Tutorial Thursday last week.  The Fall Distress Ink Sets arrived at the store, and we vowed to get them shipped the same day.  It was pretty crazy here…that good kind of crazy:) 

To make it up to you guys, I'm going to do a project post every day this week, so make sure you come back each day.    Today I'm starting with a canvas frame I made using the canvas atc's from this Tutorial Thursday post (click here).  When I started I intended it to be a layout, but until I have Halloween pictures, I decided to use it as wall decor using those atc's.

Halloween Layout (1 of 1)I started with 12×12 Sticky-back Canvas.  I sprayed the corners with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist Fern.  I then filled in the rest of the canvas with Chalkboard GM Medallion.  I sprinkled (with the end of the sprayer right out of the bottle) a few drops of Glimmer Mist Pumpkin Spice randomly on the canvas.  I dipped the rim of a canning  jar into the excess GM Fern to "stamp" circles.  I stamped the edges (with Stazon) using the Tattered Angels Halloween Hauntings stamp set.  TIP:  when using large Tattered Angels stamps, if you don't have a block large enough, using the thick plastic packaging that comes in the stamp.  Works great!   Back to the layout, to decorate I used MME Blackbird paper kit, MME Sunshine burlap trim, Maya Road Roses Ribbon Black, Tim Holtz Adorments Halloween, Prima Sherwood Ember Rose, Prima Printery Coventry Roses, Maya Road Zipper Trim, Maya Road 1" Satin Pleated Edging Black, Creative Scraps Halloween Greetings for the word Halloween, and Prima 12×12 opening Frame.
