****************Go HERE for The Cut Shoppe Halloween Blog Hop*****************
Happy Halloween, friends! I hope you have a fun weekend planned :) Today I wanted to share my latest layout for My Mind's Eye, and it's what I call a full-on traditional Halloween page. I used the Something Wicked collection mixed with a bit of Lemon Lime Heavyweight Cardstock.
I knew I wanted to add in some lime green because of the colors in the picture. I started with white cardstock and some orange watercolors. I used the packaging technique to get some orange on the page, and then I used a big spider web that I cut out using my Cameo. I placed it on the page and then used black Heidi Swapp Color Shine over it. That stuff is amazing but very messy....haha....so watch out where you spray it! :D
After that dried, I used the Citron Color Shine to add some bright green splatters. I layered some patterned papers and some of the MME cardstock behind my photo and then embellished around it with die cuts, glitter puffy stickers, a flair pin and some tangled thread. I love this photo of me and a few friends from last year. We all dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for our Body Pump workout! It was super fun :D
I used some patterned paper and cardstock down at the bottom of the page to tie in to the colors up top and then added this cute skull flair pin. I also added machine stitching to tie in the black. Those awesome glitter alphas are the perfect size for a title.
For this part of my title, I used papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and hand drew the letters and then fussy cut them out. I used my ATG gun to lightly adhere them to the page before stitching through them. I love how they look against that grungy background.
Here's another look at those letters. I used a black pen to lightly trace around some of them to give them more interest and to make them pop a bit more. I didn't want the orange ones to blend in and get lost against the orange in the background.
I love how the Color Shine made the spider web look...and all I did was spray it on. So easy! And it's imperfect and messy, which I love. I have to say my favorite part of this collection is the fun glitter puffy stickers! I love this mask!
Thanks so much for stopping in today....have a great weekend!
