I love Halloween and all the projects that this day inspires!
It helps that Melinda puts together such totally goulishly fabulous kits that are filled with devilishly cool items so that our team can create freakishly fun layouts like Kathy....
She started with one of the Bo Bunny papers from the Main kit. She used a transparency down the center with another script patterned paper behind it. The transparency she purchased from Mel at the SOD store. Behind the transparency she applied a piece of the orange cardstock from the Cardstock Add On. She matted the photo with several different papers from the kit.
She applied gesso on the background to make the frame I used from my stash pop. She applied Stampendous "Aged Black" Embossing Powder that came in last year's SOD October kit. You can also see the little black mico beads that she adhered.
Above the photo she used the "Poison" die cut that comes in the Main Kit. She applied Black Diamond Stickles around the edges and used double cardboard on the back to make it really stand up. She did this because she wanted to drape a sparkly piece of black tulle that came in last year's October kit. On each side she added little flower clusters using flowers from the Floral Add On and others from her stash.
At the bottom of the photo she created a large collage/cluster of flowers and magic potion bottle pieces of chipboard. She started in the center with a large orange flower from a previous kit. She sprinkled more little black micro beads and added a little spider to keep with the creepy feeling of the layout. She added various flowers from the Floral Add On, Main Kit and previous kits. On each side she added magic potion bottle chipboard pieces that come in the Elements Add On. The little skull is a die cut from the Main Kit. She also added little pieces of tulle for balance.
In the Elements Add On are included a packet of Tim Holtz's Halloween Rub Ons. These rub ons are fabulous. They are so easy to apply. She added several little word phrases around the background.
Have a great day
