Cut pieces of patterned paper and tissue wrap with Kushgrip snip scissors. Attach the pieces to the 6″ x 8″ burlap panel with Gel Medium. Trim off or fold over and glue any overhanging pieces.

Color the burlap panel using Barn Door, Black Soot, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, and Wild Honey Distress Paints. This layer of color will serve as an underpainting when I add more colors later to create a night scene.

Diecut Cresecent Moon & Stars, Halloween Shadows, and Rickety House out of white cardstock using the Sizzix diecutting system. Arrange the pieces on the burlap panel as shown. You might will need to trim off any excess sticking out of the panel. I cut the cat out of the trick or treater silhouette and added it to the roof of the rickety house. You can get creative with your pieces. With Matte Multi Medium, attach the diecuts to the panel in layers. Seal the top with a coat of Multi Medium. Let dry.

Begin coloring the burlap panel in sections. I colored the sky with a mix of Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire Distress Paints adding small touches of Barn Door Distress Paint in certain parts. Color the rickety house with a mix of Barn Door and Black Soot Distress Paints. We want each diecut to be prominent even though it’s a night scene with an overall dark feel. Using a cooler color like Chipped Sapphire with Black Soot makes the sky recede further to the background while a warmer color like Barn Door even when mixed with Black Soot makes the rickety house appear to stand in front. The underpainting from step 3 will serve as a muted light as even on the darkest nights, the sky is never totally black. Dilute some Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint dabbed onto non-stick craft mat with water and lightly paint over the crescent moon and stars. Color the cat on the roof with Black Soot Distress Paint.

Add a bit of visual dimension to the house and sky by dabbing on some Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stains over the windows and stars.
