A Thrilling Full Moon


It's a THRILLING time at Authentique Paper this week!
We've teamed up with Basically Bare and Art Anthology to create some really
cool Halloween/Fall themed projects.
When I received the product for this swap and saw the "Mayan Gold" Dimensional Paint
 by Art Anthology, I knew that I wanted to create a full moon as a backdrop for a Halloween collage.
  At first I didn't know how well or how much the paint would cover the Thrilling paper,
 but it worked out even better than I had hoped!

 To begin, I started with a 10X10 canvas frame. 
Using the Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology,
 I painted the sides and about a 1" perimeter on the front of the canvas. 
The paint provides great coverage and has a hint of sparkle too it.

For the moon, I cut a 7.5" circle from the Antidote patterned paper and then painted on
 one layer of Mayan Road Dimensional Paint.  After the piece was completely dry, I adhered
 it to the same size chipboard and then machine-stitched around the perimeter.  Next, I gave a
 light spray to the moon using the Raider Colorations Spray.  Before attaching to the prepared
 canvas, I glued on a trim of golden yellow pom pom trim by May Arts.  

After adding the layers of cut-out papers and the cute Halloween motif, I attached a "happy"
 banner using Basically Bare's chipboard banners that I covered in Frenzy paper.
 The sticker letters are also from the Thrilling Collection. 

To the top, the sticker alone just wasn't enough so I added one of the black chipboard pieces
 from Basically Bare's Jailer Keys set.  A little turquoise straw picks up the blue in the
postcard picture and a nice ribbon bow completes the collage.
