Rick St. Dennis HAUNTED COTTAGE Canvas TTCRD & DecoArt Media

Hello from Joi@RR!

It's that time of year... All Hallow's Eve!!!
Please feel free to visit my HAUNTED COTTAGE. 
The cauldron is boiling and the party is on!

This project was done on a 14 x 18 wrapped canvas.

Marking around where the digi image would be... 
I just began painting. No plan - just light
and loosely adding the background.

After adding the digi image with Matte Medium,
then the real work on the cottage and background began.

The WONDERFUL cottage image is from: 

I love Rick's work because he is a fabulous artist
and he has such an incredible variety of images.
 For the cottage, I pulled and tugged on it a
bit to make it look just a tad scary. 

And on we go with a few more steps...

Adding Fluid acrylic colors to the cottage, trees
and the crumbling fence line was fun. Afterwards,
out came the crackle glaze to give some texture.

Here you see the crackle texture on the cottage,
trees and fence posts was painted with Antiquing
Cream. After drying, rub off with a damp cloth
and the cracks/crevices show amazingly well.

The finished cottage! 

And a few close-ups. 

There is a skeleton too. Can you find it???!!!

This Haunted Cottage is inspiration for the Oct. 10
