here is my Halloween project, i had not idea where i was going with this project it started with wanting to do some thing with a canvas. Next my friend Wendy was using this FAB lime green paint, so that needed to be included. Next while looking through some pics on the internet i saw a weepy tree, and i had wire thus a wire weepy spooky tree.
I painted the whole canvas with black distress paint and set to dry. Once dry i painted the center with citrus lime paint. I used dry brushing techinique, dip paint brush into paint and wipe clean on paper towel so only a faction of paint remains on brush. Brush over canvas, remaining paint only really hits high points of canvas.
I added a chipboard fence that was painted black then added stickles on top. I love gun metal stickles and buy them any time i can find them- which isn't always an easy task.
The tree was made of wire, i twisted several pieces together to make the branches, next twist the branches together to make the trunk. It was very relaxing sitting, twisting and chatting. the weepy branches were bent to look spooky. I poked the branches out at different angles so it is 3D.
