Happy Halloween Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone. I have recently taken up mixed media and wanted to share my first project. It only measures 5"x7" but it was perfect for a first project. 

For the background I used black acrylic paint and watered it down. Before it dried I dabbed it with a paper towel and it gave it a cool marble type effect. 
After that dried I made some blood drips using the Golden high flow acrylic paints in Quinacridone Red. All you have to do is stand the canvas up and pour the paint on the top edge. It flows down quite nicely.
Next I added a spider web svg cut from the Gimme Candy Boxes kit at
I added a Happy Halloween card from an old paper stack that I had and outlined it with some red oil pastels. 
Next I added some bats and finally I added some clear Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle. You can't really see it on the photo but the bats and spider web are quite shiny.

Being that this is my first time doing mixed media I'm really happy on how it turned out. I might be addicted.

Thanks for stopping by

Target Room Essentials Rolling Cart

I've been dying to buy the Raskog cart from Ikea but I don't have an Ikea in town and I hate paying for shipping. So I went to Target and look what I found. They have it in charcoal and white. And it was on sale for $30. Yay me! 
You can check online if they have it in your area. Check here
