Well for the first time I am starting to get into Halloween! Usually I don't really pay too much attention to all the scrapbooking projects that go on centered around Halloween, but this year for some reason I'm really loving it! There are so many beautiful and spooky tags, cards, layouts, and home decor items out there that I feel inspired to create some myself.
This next week I will be at my local scrapbooking store Scrapbooker's Paradise doing a make & take with the tag below. I used the Authentic Halloween papers, a Stampendous spiderweb stamp, a Tim Holtz Alphabet die, On the edge picket fence die and the Tim Holtz tree die which I cut in half so it would fit on the tag.
For the fence I colored the grunge paper with Weathered Wood Distress stain, then I applied a thick coat of Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint (have you seen the large jars of this yet?!) After that was dried I rubbed the Black Soot Distress Stain over top. This gave a really cool effect and then I made the fence 3D by attaching the ends to the tag but giving it some slack in the middle. Over all I really enjoyed making this tag and I plan to work on a few more projects. I bought the Fancy Pants paper pack and the Close to my Heart Mischief paper so now I just need to carve out some time to work on that.
Hope you enjoy the tag and I'll try and post some of the other projects I'm working on this week!
