A little Haunting A Bit Late

I taught a wonderful class at the art center for Halloween. I found the cutest chipboard houses available from a wonderful seller on Etsy and couldn't resist ordering some for the kids to put together and decorate. Here is the Etsy seller: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RetiredLetsDoLunch
The shop is so full of fun chipboard stuff to make pretty! They even did a bulk order for me to save money since I was doing the class on a tight budget at the local art center. Wonderful seller and everyone should check her out.
This is my house that I made as an example for the kids to see. They turned out so fun! I wish I would have gotten some pics of the kids finished pieces, but sadly I forgot my camera!
Here is the front of my haunted house. I made mine pretty fancy with the scalloped cut pieces and such. Most kids just went for simple. I also used ink to grunge mine up a bit. I couldn't resist.
Haunted House Front
Here is a side shot. I have to show this from all angles because I'm just so happy with how it turned out. Check out that little gable!
Haunted House Side
Here is a back yard shot complete with a trio of gravestones! Spooky!
Haunted House Back
Each artist in the class also got a battery operated tea light to add that spook factor. You can peek at my flickr for a pic of my house all lit up.
All of the wonderful papers were also purchased on Etsy from some of my favorite paper sellers. Everyone should browse these shops for some wonderful selections of papers at great prices.
