IT'S CRAFTING TIME.... HALLOWEEN!!!!

Hi everyone, Happy Monday... Today is my DT Piece for It's crafting Time... the theme is HALLOWEEN!!!! you can imagine the state my hands were in when I finished this one... it was great fun!!
 I used a canvas board, I covered with Gesso,then added when dry some bits of netting for texture, then painted with facetten lack croco crackling paint.. No's 650 & 600 greens & blue..
 The door is a prima door they come in packs of two.... I cut a branch from Tim holtz Branch Tree die to add to one corner.. and also used the umbrella man die..
 The gate is a Memory box.. cut out four times..  I used some black & green beading just for texture...
The bats are also  from a Tim Holtz die...The spiders I got from ebay!!! then I used some inky gold  to add some colour... I hope you like it.. I got this idea from rach003 youtube! I must say she is amazing I could never match her work..... Thank you for the inspiration Rach.. I loved making this.. Thank you all for visiting me today... Hugs May x x x
it's crafting time pop over for a visit, They have a Fabulous store jam packed with crafty goodies.. New Tim Holtz dies in Stock & many more must haves....   x x x

Your canvas board is amazing May, brilliant idea to use umbrella man and put the skull face on him, the gate is fabulous and love how you used the beads/sequins to make the ground. A really spooky, scary make! Crafty hugs, Anne x

Wow! How fabulous is this? Very spooky! You've put a lot of work into it. I bought a pack of spiders last year for Halloween, used two and now I cannot find the flipping things! Oh well, they'll turn up - probably when I buy some more! Christine x
