A "Thrilling" Haunted Mansion

It's not too haunted nor too spooky, but this cutely
decorated Thrilling house just says HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

When I received this Maya Road paper mâché house, it started 
speaking "make me into a haunted house!"...and so, I did.
  I started by painting the piece with an acrylic black paint.  




 For the roof, I cut apart various patterns from the hexagon
 printed paper, Frenzy,and glued it to the form. 
 Next, I cut individual hexagons and attached to sections
of the roof with foam dots.  A sprinkling of iridescent glitter (from Art Glitter)
 gives them a bit of extra POP!


 After cutting squares of paper from the 6X6 Bundle, I added them to the walls of the 'rooms'.
I used a large wood veneer doily shape as the background and base for the clustered embellishment. A small postcard print was cut from the 6X6 bundle sheets (a larger, matching design can be found on the Mystic 12X12 paper).  A couple of stickers from the Details Sticker Sheet were included, as well as two black blooms and leaves from Petaloo!


 A canvas wired bow (from May Arts ribbon) sits perched on top and finishes off the design!

  2. The hexagons are really inspiring, I'm going to do that on my project today. By the way did Authenque announce their winner from the Oct. 18th blog?
