Halloween layout

Hi all!

Time seems to be flying by, Halloween only seems like yesterday and now already we are nearly at the end of November - I don't know where its going!
I'm doing some catching up by doing my layout of the antics from this years Halloween.
This is the first year my kids have ever been trick or treating and they had a fabulous time meeting up and going round with some friends and of course getting some sweets! We had fun with the annual pumpkin carving too!

I had fun with this layout, even down to the doodling zigzags round the edge with a black pen!

The pumpkins are fussy cut out of the wonderful Fancy Pants paper. I loved the pumpkin bunting!
The Chippie title was sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer mist several times and when dry I painted over the lime green Art Alchemy Paint.

The Blue Fern Studio chipboard cobweb I 'painted' with the black enamel accents, that I did the dots round the edge with, with a paint brush to create a really glossy look.
The middle pieces of the web were painted with the Art Alchemy paint.

The pumpkin splats were created by mixing the Tim Holtz Grit paste with the orange acrylic paint. This was then spread through a Dusty Attic Stencil. The Grit paste gives fantastic texture, it does actually look like squashed pumpkin!

Rose Garden **Swirlydoos October Kit Reveal with Ginny***

Hey Ladies!!

It's my turn today to share with you my projects made with the October Swirlydoos Kit  reveal.

This was the most beautiful kit and it didn't last long! I loved creating with these beautiful Prima Rossibelle papers, and the gorgeous embellishments and flowers that Krissy chose to go with them!

So lets start with my take on the October Sketch Challenge.

I cut circles of PP to put under my glass beads.

The chipboard was embossed with white embossing powder on a stencilled texture paste background.
I cut and separated the panels in the wood panel paper, distressed them and put them back together on a piece of cardstock.

I fussy cut the birdcage and used the die of the month for the swirl flourishes.

The Hunkydory Silhouette Butterfly laser cuts were spritzed with the Prima Color Bloom 2 Golden Walnut Mist.

Next up is my inspirational layout for the All That Flutters Challenge on the Swirlydoos Forum.

I used the Dusty Attic stencil on this layout with the pink Viva Décor Ferro Raspberry from the mediums kit.
I wanted to use parts from both sides of the 'Lucky Charm' Paper, which I did on this layout and then completed the it by mounting it on a piece of black cardstock.

I used the Viva Ferro on the Studio Calico Wood Veneer Arrows.
I used Distress Ink Black Soot to bring all the edges of the papers, photo mats and leaves together.


The Heidi Swapp stickers were perfect for this more modern/fun feel of layout.

My next layout is a Masculine layout.... because I like to show how versatile Swirlydoos kits are and also even the most prettiest kit can make a masculine layout!

I created a mixed media background for this masculine layout. The Notes & Scribbles PP is perfect for a masculine layout.

I added lots of embellishments from the kit and Add On's, everything except flowers!

I have made a SNAPGUIDE TUTORIAL showing you how I put this layout together.

You find the tutorial with this link below

My next project is The Technique Kit Project.

I love OTP (off the page) projects and this one was no exception, I got so engrossed with this!

I have a Snapguide Tutorial for this project showing you how I created this

here are some close ups of the finished project.

I loved creating this OTP project!

I did a little mixed media on the background

and lastly another Layout... 'Cherish'.

I used the Prima Rossibelle Ephemera pack for this layout to create all the layers.
I used both sides of the  PP Wildflower, I cut the amount of border I wanted of the flower side and then turned the remainder over and stuck both pieces on to a piece of cardstock.

I used the die of the month together with the Dusty Attic word chippie 'cherish' and the Studio Calico wood veneer hearts with the Viva Ferro Raspberry.
