Halloween Fun

I like everything about Halloween - the colors, the witches, the jack-o-lanterns with their scary faces, the candy corn and of course, all the costumes.

I'm creating Halloween mixed media art and adding some humor. Below is one of my new pieces.
"They hide in plain sight. They only wear their hats on Halloween. The rest of the year, they meet for tea."

This is an 8" x 8" canvas board based in orange acrylic. Black netting covers the black felt hats kept in hiding all year. Crocheted lace covers one corner of the print of a vintage photo. A tiny cat and a bat accent the scene. Printed fabric is the base on the right side of the piece.

Check out my Etsy store for more Halloween humor:

  1. Fabulous piece! I love it! I've never been "into" Halloween as my birthday is 6 days before and that is the thrill of October for me. But all of a sudden, I'm loving all of the images out there that are available! If only I were feeling creative!
    I tried the white vinegar approach to diminish the smell in the vents, and it really seems to be working. Thanks so much for your advice; I really appreciate it!
    Happy day and keep creating your beauties!
