Boo! Canvas

Hello to you all. Today Shanna here and I have a home decor project to share with you. I wanted to create something fun for right when you walk in my house as the weather is cooler and the kids are playing indoors more. I had fun playing with several different mediums for the background but the chipboard part was so fun.

I painted the Boo with some ivory and white paint for a textured look.
The 31 Wall Art is new! There are so many cool things you can do with this! For the date I wanted a  crackle effect. I painted the base color with grey, then this cool crackle paint (Martha Stewart brand) and then I went over that after it dried with black.

I used a very dry brush over this so that way there was still splotchy grey areas.
I loved how the background looks like oozing blood for the scary effect. Okay maybe not really scary.  
I had to soften it up with some flowers I have including some black roses. My favorite thing to do is to add some cardboard behind things to give them dimension. So this popped off the canvas. 

With Halloween around the corner check out the store for some spooky fun!
