Halloween series - Witching Hour


  I love fantasy stories  in spooky forests with misty figures and phenomens, where the fog creates eerie optical effects.
Halloween time is near and so I had a lot of fun to create a little witches house with this amazing wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts.

look before I started with decoration and painting

basically colored with Chalky finish Paint Vintage from Decoart and Glimmermist from Tattered Angels 'Woven Burlap' and a little bit water diluted black color

some close up's

I'm  always fascinated from this natural wooden shape look and I think it isn't always necessary to paint them, or?!
I only used orange and black acrylic colors, 
the classical Halloween shades with a little bit shimmer, to paint some wooden shapes


oh what is that??? a phenomenal magic effect ;-)

I want to share this Halloween inspiration project here

Happy crafting!


  1. I love your "Witching Hour", Kerstin!
    Great textures as always and that colour scheme works just brilliantly! Love those pops of orange against the dark, gloomy greys, whites and blacks! Great job with the Calico Craft Parts too - and what I love most is that this project is so "you"!
