As Seen on For the Luv of Art Blog - Halloween Altered Art Tutorial Featuring My Mind's Eye Haunted Flocked

Cue Halloween music: "This is Halloween" to get you in the seasonal spirit!

Don't you just LOVEEEEEEEEEEE what My Mind's Eye did with Kraft and Flocking this year for Halloween?

My Mind's Eye Haunted "Paper & Accessories Kit" Flocked Halloween
My Mind's Eye Haunted "Harlequin" Flocked 12x12 Kraft Pattern Paper
My Mind's Eye Haunted "Cardstock Accessories" 12x12 Sheet
I found it totally irresistible.  Here's what I made for home decor combining it with a skull shape from Say It With Letters.com., and next my tutorial.
 Step 1. On the back of your paper, place shape face down and trace lightly.

Step 2. Cut out the tracing with scissors or your craft knife.

 Step 3. Cut the eyes & nose out. Cut slits for the mouth and teeth. Then, holding the paper and shape in place, face up, press the mouth and teeth paper in, and crease where it needs to be cut.

 Step 4.  Repeat the above step for the side slits. Adhere the paper to the wood shape. Then embellish and hang.

I finished her off with a ribbon bow, chandelier earrings, prima flower eyes, and misted a white feather silver! Almost everything can be found in the For the Luv of Art Shop!!! :)
Thanks to DT Member Brianne for the color combo inspiration!!!!
Happy Halloween!
