“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Halloween Ball

How has your Sunday been going ...?
I've been trying to get a lot done..
getting ready for Great Pumpkin Night,
and Halloween.
finishing up a couple of art swaps,
adding details to a few paintings I was commissioned. 

Through it all 
I feel the time slipping away..
It's almost here and then it will be gone...
Making Halloween crafts helps extend the spookiness of the season for me 
I created another little canvas using products
from the lovely Lisa Kettell:)

It's simple
you need
A circus tent & 2 frozen Charlotte dolls from Lisa's shop
a 6x4 inch canvas
a small rubber bat toy..which are usually abundant this time of year
wooden frame from a craft store 
scrapbook paper
glitter glue
 acrylic paint in
hot glue
I painted the sky and moon first
then I cut one of the dolls in half and glued her to the tent
I painted them, added arms from the scrapbook paper
cut the wings off the rubber bat
glued them onto him
then glued them both to the cavas
I attached the frame, which I painted black.
Notice he didn't photograph very well?
vampires usually don't :)
Either way..
 they're now ready to fly to the Halloween Ball! 
Hope you have an amazing day


  1. Giggles....I love it. Vampires don't photograph very well. So cute, my dear!

  2. This is a happy couple. Cute as heck! Happy Halloween to you! Norma, x

  3. What a darling duo! Purple and black go so well together. I like that this piece has dimension and depth.


thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it:)
