Frighten Me! with Dana

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today wrapping up 'Frighten Me!' week. I have to admit that I'm a bit sad to see October go. I've really enjoyed creating creepy projects this month. I'm sharing two projects today, the first being a Halloween Art Room. This kit is super fun to put together. If you'd like to see how Di and Kerri have altered this kit CLICK HERE.

I painted the chipboard pieces with acrylic paint, irredescent watercolors and Rock Candy Stickles. All the chipboard on this piece comes in the kit except the pieces of Grass Flexistrip and Fence Flexistrip.

I used white dimensional paint on the spiderwebs and red dimensional paint for the owl and bat eyes.

I covered the top of this piece with Magic Mesh for some fun texture. I glued the bat to a piece of twisted wire so it could fly above my scene. I finished the top with a hand-dyed ribbon bow, for a pop of color, and a Haunted token.

If you'd like to create a scene like this for yourself you can get a head start on your Christmas crafting and pick up the Christmas Fireplace Art Room or Blank Art Room.

I shared this arch on my personal blog earlier this week.

I covered the base of an Arabian-Style Layered Arch Frame with patterned paper. I used Ranger Distress Ink with the Tree and Leaves 3-Part Mask to turn the bright blue patterned paper into a nighttime scene.

I added a piece of Large Scalloped Bunting to the bottom of the arch and finished with some colorful trim and a glittery spider.

You can find all the chipboard used in these projects in the Tando Creative Online Store.

Thanks for stopping by today!
