Skeleton Love Canvas - Susan K. Weckesser + The Crafter's Workshop

Hi! I'm sharing a canvas that I created for the joint Susan K. Weckesser and The Crafter's Workshop event today. This canvas measures 6x6 inches so I selected several mini (6x6 inch) stencils; Rib Cage, Beaded Curtain, Positive and Heartstrings Frags for this project. I'm still going strong with Halloween projects--this one has a healthy dose of whimsy!

I cut a vibrant section from a piece of Live In Color patterned paper and added some stamping using the Susan K. Weckesser A Little Bit Washi Stamp Set. I added more patterns to the background of this canvas using the Mini Beaded Curtain and Mini Positive stencils with a black pen and yellow Clearsnap Smooch.

I applied whipped spackle over the Mini Rib Cage stencil and then added a black crackle heart using the Mini Heartstrings Frags stencil. While the crackle paint was still wet, I sprinkled some pink glitter over the top for a pop of color.

I finished this canvas with a multicolored bow and some Diviney song lyrics that read:

Your skeleton is heaven but your heart's pitch black.
And I like ya like that.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'd also like to that The Crafter's Workshop for the amazing selection of stencils!


  1. This is fabulous! LOVING that heart!!!!

  2. Cool whimsical canvas! I love how you combined the heart and the skeleton. I'd love go work with those stencils and the washi stamps as well.
