Halloween Decorating

Doing a little Spooky decorating this weekend. Going for a Spooky Apothecary theme on this table and I think I need to make a few spooky tags for the jars telling of the scary contents. Next I'll be working on the dining room for the Witches Tea I'm hosting the end of the month. More to come...

Halloween ATCs

These are my ATCs for a local swap with my scrapping buddies. Usually I make my ATC sets all the same but this time I went a little crazy. It's Halloween after all.
My craft room now looks like a mad scientist lives there.
For the background of the cards I used a Tim Holtz technique with ink, water mister, craft mat and a heat gun.
Other Techniques Used:
Heat embossing, Cricut cartridge October 31, stickles, lots of stamping and other odds and ends. Charms from

Haunted Masks
Things are getting creepy around here already! Here are a couple of masks I have been working on. I started with a plain paper mache skeleton mask from Michaels. Painted and then decoupaged with stamped (stazon ink)tissue paper spritzed with a little Glimmer Mist and embellished with creepy black roses, netting and ribbon and other spooky odds and ends.

A Closer Look

I won!!! I won!!! My 7gypsies Printers Tray using K&Company's Jubilee line won the Archivers printers tray contest and is heading for Scrap Fest!!! There it will compete with 44 other trays for the grand prize of $500.00!!! I am so excited!

Before I dropped the tray off at Archivers yesterday I took a few detailed pictures. I added a few more pieces of my veil to the tray and I think it turned out super cool. Tearing apart my veil was so liberating! It has sat in a box for years and now it as new life in this keepsake tray. I hope you enjoy a closer look.
