Isn't it lush!! So there are TWO prizes up for grabs this month!!!! Good luck!
So, here is a spooky sketch for you designed by our lovely Marie
and here is your inspiration:
I used Die Cut With a View and Kaisercraft papers for this. The tree and barb wire is a chippie from Dusty Attic. The photo is of my youngest daughter. Last year I dressed her up like the Alice from the Graphic 45 papers and went out and a had little shoot with her.
This sketch rocked! I layered on the liquitex black paint thick in the corners of this layout, and created the frame in the middle on brown canvas fabric, and layers of distress paint/ ink on a leaf stencil by Balzer Designs/The Crafter's Workshop. I adore the funky bird with glasses stamp by Graphic 45, that's on the tag on the right. The photos are from a fun photo shoot my teenaged daughter and I did this summer....on a "spooky" theme. :)
I pulled out some not so normal Halloween papers from my stash and mixed them with traditional ones. I really like the added funkiness it produced to make this page stand out. The spider was a plastic ring, I cut apart, and placed on top of a piece of dryer sheet that I used as webbing. My mists weren't showing up enough on this patterned paper, so I used black gesso to blob here and there, with some added Stickles.
i got Punky with gesso, molding paste, paint, and plenty of inks for this one. Molding paste adds such texture. I used punchinella as a stencil and applied a thin layer with a credit card.
I had some leftovers and add-ons from my tartan layout and it just went this way with this layout. ;) Strange thing that I pretty much followed the sketch without reinventing every detail. Even that black spider is there... you know the story?
PS: Your creation does not have to be halloween!!! :) You have until 31st October to link up the side!!
