I started with a 8 x 10 canvas and used the back to utilize the niche for adding my fun Halloween bottles and embellishments. The frame and outside of the canvas was textured using cheesecloth and dimensional paint from Art Anthology.
Rock Candy crackle paint was applied to the outside of the bottles and allowed to dry naturally for the beautiful crackes to fill the bottles and jars. For the inside backdrop of the canvas I used Tim Holtz Paper Stash Halloween and splattered some AA Minx Ink for a bloody effect.
For the sugar in the spoon, Distress Rock Candy glitter was added, and to achieve the spider web look, I allowed hot glue strands to catch on the sides of he canvas. The tubing used is simply some plumbers tubing I got at the $1.00 store. Go grab yourself some old bottles and fix yourself a scary laboratory for part of your Halloween decor.
