How to Paint Faux Marble and a Spooky Coffin

Hi, servus and I hope you're having a good start into the new week. I've had a lovely weekend, doing some kayaking on Ottenstein Barrier Lake with my husband and son and my dog girlie Bluna on maybe one of the last really warm weekends as autumn is fast approaching.

And with it comes the wonderful and inspiring Halloween season - one of my favourite "crafty seasons" - not just because I love to create spooky stuff myself but I always find so many wonderfully spooky projects being shared around that time which I enjoy a lot (and most of which have my think "OMG! Why haven't I come up with this genius idea and project?!!!" ;) 

Today I am sharing a new project over at the Calico Craft Parts Blog which is hopefully at least a bit genius too and also my first Halloween project for this year - a 3D coffin painted in "Faux Marble Painting Technique" (a technique from my early days as an arts teacher). 

Of course I am sharing the full tutorial with loads of steps images over on the Calico Craft Parts Blog! Simply click HERE to get there or use the linked design team badge at the bottom of this post. 
(giggle...I love how the skull in the background kind of photobombs the picture...I hadn't created this effect on purpose and he does it on many more pictures and I only saw it when re-reading the post on the Calico Craft Parts blog to correct any typing mistakes. Makes me giggle now each time I scroll through the post). 

I also love that there are oodles of awesome spooky craft parts to find in the Calico Craft Parts "Halloween and Autumn" section. I guess I could do tons of Halloween projects without having to repeat myself...and adding texture and worn crackle to these with my beloved DecoArt and DecoArt media products is still something I enjoy a lot. 

Which brings me to one of my very favourite Halloween projects (and posts) I have done for and with Calico Craft Parts and DecoArt paints and products. You can get to it HERE if you want to find out more about it (as it comes with a step by step too). 

Well...time for me - after the weekend out in nature and off my studio desk - to get back to some Halloween crafting. Have you already started the crafty Halloween season? 

Have a great week!
