I've got a layout in progress in the middle of the table (seen below in closer detail). Around the left side of the table are the omnipresent paper trimmer and a new package of blank 4 x 6 Project Life cards (which I plan to use both in PL and in my December Daily album.) The rest of the loose items are for my Project Life album -- cards, stickers, etc. Next year I think I'm going to break down and buy an actual core kit, rather than trim down pieces of patterned paper to make my own. It's probably more economical, but it's time consuming.
The purple bit in the middle of the page is the side of the bag from the jewelry store, and I thought it would serve well as the title of the page. It's large, so the page design is a bit over-crowded, but I like it well enough.
I bought the paper mache witch's hat at Michael's and decorated it. It was time-consuming, but easy and I'm really pleased with it. I misted some random flowers with black Dylusions mist and others with the last drops of my orange Glimmer Mist. The leaves were die cut from glitter paper and book paper; the latter were inked with distress inks.
Sorry I'm long-winded! Happy Wednesday and happy Halloween to those who celebrate. We're hoping for no rain and absolutely no snow Friday evening. Eek!
Happy Wednesday and happy WOYWW! (Do you want to share what's on your workdesk? Hop on over to Stamping Ground and join in the party!)
I've just picked up from making Halloween tags and cards and I'm going to jump back into Project Life.
I just got this stencil and I'm excited about it. It seems like you could use it in the same way that you would use washi tape -- to make a border on a tag or card -- or on an art journal page.
Theme and variations -- above and below. I really like how these mini blueprints stamps look in a grid on the card front.
All three of these Halloween tags make me happy -- pure creative play. I think my favorite is the candy corn one -- how fun are those candy corn images cut out? I used glitter glue on the white and orange portions and the awesome Dot Fade stencil with modeling paste to make the textured background. I was inspired -- as always -- by Tim Holtz's tag.
I'm publishing this a little early (Tuesday evening) so I can link up with Tim Holtz's website.
