Woohoo! Over at SKdigis we are definitely in the Halloween spirit. The challenge this time is to use anyone of Sonia's adorable ghosts creations. I chose to use "Scared Ghost" and created this mirror for some fun Halloween decor.
I went to the dollar store and picked up an 8x10 mirror. I painted it black and while that was drying I measured how big I wanted my ghost to be. I used Microsoft Word and sized it accordingly. I wanted my ghost to be at an angle and not completely cover the mirror. I then cut out the ghost from regular copier paper. I used the negative and laid that onto the mirror. I used painter's tape to adhere the paper to the mirror.
For the eyes, eyebrows and mouth I cut those all out and used re-positional tape to adhere to the mirror.
To create the ghost image I sprayed Krylon Frosted Glass (I purchased at Michael's with a coupon) and waited for it to dry. I then removed the tape and paper. I added a bit more texture to the ghost by spraying a little bit of the frosted glass onto a paper towel and dabbing the image. This created more of a mottled look.
The web frame around the image was adhered with a little bit of glue and then a black ribbon was added to the back for hanging.
