Happy Halloween, y'all! Hope you are having a great Monday :) I wanted to share one of my Halloween pages I created for Simple Stories today. I used the Happy Haunting Simple Set, and I added in a fun cut file from The Cut Shoppe. I wanted to add some green and purple into the mix, so I did that by bringing in some watercolors. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Marigold Digger and painted it on with a big brush so it would show through and around the cut file. I backed some of the open spots of the cut file with papers from the collection and then came in with some green and purple watercolors. Since this is a small collection, I used some green buttons to add to the embellishments. My silly girl is the cutest Hulk, don't you think? She looks all sweet and innocent, but she might go full-on Hulk at any given minute...haha! :D
Here you can see the watercolors and Dazzlerz a little better. I cut "halloween" from a piece of the cut apart paper. It's kind of like a crossword puzzle, but I liked how this looked as part of my title. I fussy cut the pumpkin from patterned paper as well and added some foam under it. That cute spider web is from the sticker sheet. I used some of the black alphas from the Snap Bold sticker pack.
I love that this cut file has a heart at the bottom. I wanted this to be a sweet Halloween page and not too spooky, so the heart does that :) I added a few phrase stickers from the Sticker sheet as well as another cute bat. I finished this area off with tangled thread and a button from my stash.
I did so some black machine stitching around the circle. This is a great cut file; it's very versatile and it helps the design of your layout by giving your photos a place to go right inside the circle.
Here's one more look at the cut file and mixed media work. And my shoeless little Hulk running around at school...haha! What a silly goose!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
