Artful Times. Challenge 41 - Spooktacular

Spooktacular is the theme for Artful Times, and I decide to use the washed sardine tin that has been sitting on a shelf for ages.
I painted it with black gesso, and sprayed it with orange and purple. The skull and cross bones inside is grunge board painted with white crackle paint, and there is a metal rib cage charm hanging inside. I stuck some tatty purple yarn inside, put up a bit of fencing, and sat a shrink plastic crow on it. I stuck on some Autumn leaves and a pumpkin, and draped a bit of purple web material on one side, with a spider crawling over it. The top is a Tim Holtz handle, with some skull beads each side. there are a few skulls behind the fence. The stand is a cotton reel. I had great fun making this.

Who would think that an old sardine tin could look so good! It's all come together beautifully.
