A Halloween Welcome

At Last...We Thought You’d Never Arrive
- Halloween is a popular holiday at our house, and this Halloween home-decor piece hangs inside our front entryway.  In the theme of the “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” and featuring papers from the Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland Collection it is definitely an attention getter.  Faux blood created in my Mad Scientist Lab (aka Studio) with "secret ingredients" to be revealed in an upcoming Halloween episode of When Creativity Knocks was used in three ways - I used my fingers to smear it over all edges of the canvas while the blood was still wet (it really looks disgusting lol!).  Another vial of blood is attached to the canvas with the Mad Hatter looking up at it with a surprised expression.  And some of drops and puddles are added beneath the vial onto the canvas so it looks like it spilled over.  The canvas itself was colored with Rit Dye, and the
 green strips of torn sheet were dyed with Rit to match the background paper.  The purple-grey paper stamped with a pocket watch stamp matches the color of the Mad Hatter's coat perfectly thanks to Rit dye.   The Hatter himself is partially cut from the background  and raised up with Elmer's foam tape for added depth.  A gold moon & star charm, gold teapot and teabag charms tied with twine serve as accents.
