It's raining scary pumpkins, black cats, and Halloween!


Happy, Happy Tuesday!

I love October!  and I love Halloween!

Today, I want to share 2 projects I completed for Pretty Little Studio, using their Scaredy Cat collection.  This is one of my favorite Halloween collections and I love the cute, whimsical die-cuts, and the great traditional Halloween colors, with pops of purple and monster green!

My first project was created with only 2 sheets of paper, a frame, glitter, crackle and shimmer paint!

Step One: 

Cut individual pieces from ONE sheet of Costume paper. For my example, I cut the trick or treaters, the 2 witches, the pumpkin, the owl, and the word 'spooky'

Step Two:

Embellishment cut pieces, with glitter, crackle paint, and shimmer paint.

Step Three:

Embellish the SECOND sheet of as desired.  For my example, I applied crackle paint on the apples and around the 'spooky' title.

Step Four:

Adhere cut pieces to SECOND sheet with pop dots, placing them directly over the same image on the 2nd sheet.

Step Five:

Frame and enjoy!
My second project is a layout I created for this weeks Sketch Challenge, over at PLS.

I love these sketches by Keri....they are so versatile and super wonderful.

I 'expanded' on the spider web theme for the sketch this week, by adding black mist in the corners of my paper, and layering a large die cut spider web over various Halloween patterned paper. 

Instead of 2 photos, I used one, and replaced the second photo spot with several Halloween word ribbon labels. 

Aren't the Scaredy Cat Die Cuts and banner tags adorable?  I love the design and colors!

I hope my projects put you in the Halloween spirit!  With only one more week before the big Trick or Treat night get out those scary decorations and fun costumes!
