Ravenswood Manor with ColourArte

Hello and welcome everyone!  Well, here we are in the middle of October.  My, the time is flying so fast, and Halloween will be here before we know it.  I love making Halloween projects, and my ColourArte paints are waiting to turn this cute little birdhouse die from Eileen Hull into something spook-tacular!

I made a video tutorial to share the creative process and show you how wonderful the ColourArte products are, and how well they work together.

Just for fun, here are a few still photos of the project, but I hope you will take a few minutes to watch the video to see the creative process, as well as watch how well the ColourArte products work.  If you like my video, I would appreciate if you would give me a thumbs up, and subscribe to my youtube channel so you will be the first to know when I post my next video.
