Welcome to Day 4 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Today I would like to share a cute little canvas art board with you.

Black Ink
Graveyard Black Cardstock
Canvas Art Board
Wink of Stella
Clear embossing powder
Stamp--Tricks and Treats
Tiny bats

First paint the art board with ArtAnthology Dimensional Acrylic Terra Cotta Paint, dry.  With ArtAnthology Bubble Stencil and a sponge dab ink on background. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Use toilet paper roll to apply ArtAnthology Dimensional Acrylic Vegas Gold Paint!

At the last minute I added a few circles made with the bubble stencil and ArtAnthology Dimensional Acrylic Baby Blue Eyes Paint. Layer image on Graveyard Black Cardstock, attach gauze to back before attaching to the board with foam dots. Edge with Wink of Stella!

Stamp sentiment with Black Ink and layer on Graveyard Black Cardstock, adhere to art board.  Add a few little bats... for a spooky little wall hanging!

Thanks for stopping by~ Lyneen

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
