Halloween Inspiration

Good morning!

Today I have some wonderful inspiration to share....

First up is Kathy, with this delightful layout, using the Scraps Of Darkness 'Danse Macabré' kit

Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Fall / Halloween layout

She started by layering the background papers, all from the kit.  She distressed the edges, then used some modeling paste and a stencil. 
Once the paste was dry she applied the Faber-Castell Gelatos "Gold Champagne" included in an older kit,  sprayed some water on the Gelatos and rubbed it around with her fingers to get a nice shimmer and color.  Next, she applied Prima's Color Bloom "Gilded" which is a light tangerine color and blended it with the gold.  After she dried it she applied some splatters in the same paints, and mixed some water with the Gelatos on her mat to get little gold splats, then did some stamping around the layout.



There is some beautiful Pewter Crochet Ribbon by May Arts included in the Elements Add On that she glued to the left side of the layout.  She created the black "filigree" frame using some black doilies.
She created the mat for the photo by using the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Journaling and Ephemera Cards that are included in the Elements Add On.


She applied gesso and hand painted the chipboard with the new Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink in "Leaf" from our store,  then applied Ranger's Distress Crackle Paint in "Clear Rock Candy" to get a little texture on the leaves.




There are some beautiful velvet hydrangea flowers from Petaloo in the Floral Add On that she sprinkled around the chipboard and on the corners of the frame. 
There is also an adorable tag that she used in the far top corner of the photo mat.  It came from the Rare Oddities chipboard from Graphic 45 that is included in the main kit.



Next up is a beautiful layout from Lynne


Tuesday Tip - 
using a new pencil - dip the eraser end in ink than dab on your page!  You will have perfect round dots!
