It's invitation time!
It's out 10th Annual Halloween Party! And my Halloween Invitations have for the most part gone out! This year I went with a Toe Tag and I LOVE this invitation. You'll find I have blurred out my private information.
Lets start with these creepy vinyl fingers I bought at my $1 Store, $2 for 10 fingers. Gross and everyone said so!
I found these tags on Pinterest and thought they were PERFECT! Especially one I added my own spookiness to them.
I tried to find TH Splatter stencil so I could do these blood splatters with no luck. So I smashed my Barn Door stain down hard. The harder you smash the more it splatters. Oh and cover up, I made a mess of my new shirt.
I stamped the skull and date using one of those S.M.A.S.H stampy things...very technical term.
Stamping with a lighter colour really adds a spooky layer.
On the back I continued the distress with ink and a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
All lined up with those creepy bloody fingers.
I think these are my favourite Halloween Invitations yet. They took no time to make and are really gross!
I have my Halloween Costume picked out! What are you dressing up as?
It is official... I am addicted to Journaling. This is an inspiration post... why? I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas. I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.
I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with. I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.
See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then add the paint.
Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder.
Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep. To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder.
Heat and yum! Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge.
Spray and layer onto the pages. Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works!
Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page. BAM! I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
What's new? Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me. Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.
There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.
