13 Days of Halloween- Altered Item

Feeling a bit sad that this is my last post for The 13 Days of Halloween but I have to say it has been an absolute blast meeting the challenges every few days over at
Betty and Corinne have kept all of us on our toes and while it is disappointing there were not more fans competing with each contest I hope all of the 'princesses' gave some inspiration to Betty's fans.
I have certainly enjoyed seeing everyone's different take on each challenge!
For my last piece I have made an altered canvas. I started by using impasto paste and a stencil to create a textured tree background that tied in with the image. I painted it with brown acrylic paint and then rubbed Emerald Treasured Gold over the trees. Old book paper was placed behind the image ...appropriate backing for Poe! I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then went to town adding chiboard, bling, some of my favourite creepy hands, a spider and some Prima Halloween sprigs. The words were from a Carta Bella chipboard sheet.
I hope you have enjoyed stopping by and perhaps some of you will stop by at Betty's blog and enter this last contest and win yourself a Halloween prize!
