Hallowe’en Party Animal

or possibly not from the look on her face

The base of this hanging is artist sheet canvas. Using Rust Red acrylic I applied the first layer with baby wipes then used a mask to create the design. The witch was image transferred onto recycled curtain lining. Tore a length from a velvet skirt which creates the hanging. Then added buttons, strip of vintage fabric and some beaded trim.

    This is a great hanging, lynne. Thank you for sharing your techniques with us. I just caught up on the last three posts I missed. Really enjoying what you do. I don’t quite understand Whispers and this baby wipe thing. I have a lot to learn!!

    The masking works really well. It looks like antique fabric. We have both been tearing fabric this weekend, nice feeling…(I should imagine tearing cotton velvet would be a bit tricky)
