Halloween Canvas

Hi everybody.
I was pleased to see that I made the top 3 again at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, especially as this was the dreaded 'Clean and Simple'!
Another week has flown by and it's time for Paint Party Friday again, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin. I have made an 8x8" canvas, using an image from Gecko Galz for the focal image. I painted the background using colours that are in the image, which I printed onto canvas. The leaves are those I made last weekend from painted paper, which was die-cut, varnished and crackled.









Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  10. Great win, it was a lovely CAS card, and thanks for the link to this challenge site. I like your owl picture, very stylish with the moon. I've no idea how you printed the image on canvas, that seems very clever and effective.

  17. Well done for making top three Valerie.

    This canvas has so much atmosphere. I do like owls with a hat on they take on a whole new persona.

    Have a great day

  18. Your painting is beautiful, the autumn colours really zing against the rest of other colours. In fact it produces a very complex story with so much to look at and wonder about.

  31. Valerie, your work on the canvas is super. I love your leaves. I will have to try harder on leaves. I don't have a die cut machine but I do have some great leaf stamps I could cut out and do. You are inspiring.
