31 Days of Halloween 2017 (Day 2)

It's the 2nd day of the 31 Days of Halloween! 
Halloween/Day of The Dead Celebration-Hosted by Terra
Come Join Us for Some Ghoulish Fun! 
You will find the blog roll for all of the Wicked Bloggers at the bottom of this post.



I decorated a little tombstone with bits and pieces and found objects. The tombstone is made from a very sturdy board and comes with a base. I colored it with purple acrylic paint and went over it again with black soot distress paint. Adding some gold to create a patina.
 I adhered it to it's base, adding a little bit of spider web that I colored with black soot.
 And then the fun part- embellishing! Hope you like.
