Something New!!

I decided to make a Halloween ornament recently and just finished painting the little guy last night. It is topped with a spider web and 4 spiders, has a Halloween landscape just below the web and a black bottom with stars and swirls. Hope you like it!!

Close up of the top with the spider web and spiders

Close up of the landscape around the center of the can also see part of the black glass ornament hanger that goes with the ornament.

Another close up of the landscape.

View of the large tree on the ornament and the black bottom with stars and swirls.

Final view with the black bottom and part of the landscape surrounding the ornament. Oh, I forgot to mention, it is a 4" ornament so it isn't itsy bitsy.

I've already decided to do another ornament, the reverse of this one with a black background instead of the linen color I used, but I need to finish another piece first so I better get in the studio and do a little sculpting and painting!!!

Have a great day...beautiful day here!!

So beautiful! Theresa McFayden coined a lovely word for ornaments like this....Bellaween! Because Bella means beauty. It just fits perfect doesn't it...:)

Thank you Jenny, Sheila and Lenae!!

I put the hanger in one of my papier mache balls and thought it needed to become an ornament several weeks ago, it just took me awhile to get to it. I'm anxious to start on the black one now that I have one under my belt.

Bellaween?...I love the sound of the Italian language and that just sounds lovely, doesn't it?!! Thank you Lenae!!!

Happy creating all!!
