Here is my contribution for Day 8 of the 12 Days of Creepmas blog hop hosted by Smeared and Smudged. Click image to enlarge.
Anyway, I started with a white piece of canvas board and put a coat of DecoArt Media Gesso in black on it. I made the brick background with the following DecoArt products: Media Sand Paste, Brick Wall Stencil, foam daubers, and various colours of Americana Premium Matte Acrylic paint. I then sealed with Texture Primer-Sealer. For the floor, I found some wood toned paper and did my best to make a wood floor effect with my Copic markers. I then attached the paper and the images to the canvas board using DecoArt Media Matte Medium.
I know the bricks and floor boards are a bit large for my images, but I didn't exactly plan on making this scene. I was just playing with products and ended up with this piece. If I were to do it over again, Santa would be much larger. Also, I would have left a bit of white around the Creepmas tree or make the bricks a lighter colour so the tree would pop out more. I tried to add some white pencil around some areas of the tree. I'm not sure if I like it or not. Anyway, if ifs and buts were candy and nuts we'd all have a wonderful Creepmas!
