I added a bit of Dollar Store spiderweb and a cutout of a haunted house. It is also gloss black but the camera picks it up as dull. Trust me, it's black and shiny!
Here it is on our Navajo Blue door. I like the stark contrast of the black against that nice blue. I added some ruffled plastic streamers that blow in the wind. Spooky! It's not simple, visually, but it is simpler than my usual style.
Can you see the three tiny bats flying around the haunted house? They gave me a nice surprise...
..because from inside they look like this! Serendipity, baby! Maybe I CAN embrace the less is more design ethic, but after Halloween because you haven't seen the fully decorated front porch yet.
Is there such a thing as too much detail? We'll find out and I'll post it right here.
