Who says Halloween Art has to always be orange & black? Yesterday was art time in the Red Lead Studio. Chris was creating more Open Studio art projects while I played with our stencils, stamps, and color cube ink pads. The Chills Thrills stencil is a little scary but way fun for Halloween creating. I stenciled with our ink pads on the Cat Scratch paper that is included in our Halloween Paper Pack. The ink pads I used are carbon, ballet, bluebird, and citrus. Have you ever cut out your stenciled art and layered it on a collage? Or your stamped paper art? Don't worry about perfect cuts - just rough cut around the edges and go for it! One of my all time favorite art techniques is this: When I am finished stenciling - let the ink dry - trace around the inside edges of the stencil with my go to white pen - Sharpie water based fine point paint marker - love this pen!!
The Halloween season is one of our favorite times of the year! The weather here in St. Louis has been the best - almost like it is mid September instead of mid August - loving it! This year we have more new Halloween rubber stamps, stencils, embellishments, and collage sheets. Plus we added a little something else too - Home Decor! Haunted Houses, Ravens, and Sweet Halloween Girl Silhouettes in a large size for adding to your Halloween decorating! Take a look:
Hope you love them as much as we do! Can't wait to get out the paint, spritzers, and inks!
