My Shabby Bat
Hello crafty friends! Jeanne here to share my latest project. It's a pretty simple project but I wanted to have the wooden bat that is included in the October Mixed Media Kit to be the main focus. Here is how I created it.
I began by painting the bat with Finnabair Black Gesso from a past kit. Once it was dry I went over one of the sides using the Folk Art Glitter Fine Purple Violet Acrylic Paint and I set it aside to dry. While this dried, I painted one of the Canvas' from a previous kits, using Folk Art Matte Ballet Pink Acrylic Paint.
I went over the canvas with this paint twice and let it air dry over night. I had this black sparkle netting in my stash given to me in a swap by a dear friend. I adhered this first onto the canvas using my hot glue gun. I then adhered the painted bat onto the netting piece.
I then adhered on the Scrapberrys Jubilee Light Pink Flowers that are included in the October Scrapbook Kit and some other flowers from my stash.
I then added some black tulle in between the flowers, just tucking and adhering with the hot glue gun. I finished it off by adding some Prima Marketing Say it in Crystals as eyes on the bat. Also adding a few pearls on some areas.
I know this is a very short blog post but I do hope that you are inspired by it. I'll be putting this for my Halloween Decor. You might know by now how I love shabby chic and my favorite color is pink. I did get inspired by the Folk Art Glitter Fine Paint. Even though it's Purple Violet, I knew how great this would go against a light pink background.
I will be back next week with another project. Also don't forget about the Mood Board Challenge going on this month. Check it out below! See you all next week!
