Darkness...I wanted to make a really dark/spooky canvas for Halloween and I think this fits the bill.....

I started off with this Halloween saying...
"Darkness belongs to the dead, the ungodly, and the demons that lurk in our minds."
Here's what I did: I started off by applying a couple coats of the Art Anthology Trolley Grey dimensional paint to the canvas which I let dry between layers for maximum depth and dimension.
Applying the first coat...
Then I painted my hands - one at a time of course and pressed them onto the canvas...
Looks pretty dang scary at this point huh?
I then messed around with a skull from the Screaming Skulls collage sheet which I printed on a piece of Craft Attitude Film. Once dry it was glued to the canvas.
I then used an oil pastel around the image and outside edge of the canvas. I smudged it around with my finger. To finish it off I wrote the dark sentiment over and over across the canvas with a gold pen. I had to take the photo at an extreme angle because looking head on you couldn't see or read the writing very well...at an angle it shows up great.
I think it turned out pretty creepy don't you?
