There's a ghost in my bedroom!

Made by Maarten, 11 years old

You need:

  1. white drawing paper A5 size
  2. indian ink
  3. dip pen
  4. pencil
  5. paper towel
  6. black paper for background

Help, there are ghosts in my bedroom! Behind the wardrobe, Achter de kast, under the bed, under the rug.... Sketch your room with a pencil: bed, wardrobe, toys, window, door. Draw ghosts on several places. Trace the drawing with indian ink. Leave the ghosts white, and fill the rest of the drawing in with various textures. Look for a lesson on texture at this link: Exercise in drawing texture. Paste the drawing on a black sheet.

  1. Cool idea for Halloween season. Do you have Halloween in the Netherlands? I should know the answer to this I think...

  2. Thanks for your reactions! Yes, we do have Halloween in the Netherlands, but it's just a pale imitation of the way you celebrate it in the USA! We don't celebrate it in schools. Some people organize a Halloween party for themselves, that's it. Stores do their best to let us buy Halloween stuff, but that's just for decoration. We don't know trick and treat, I learned about it from American blogs!
