So you guys know I really love Halloween and Fall. With all the craft shows gearing up, I started making some projects to sell…..I just starting altering items I had picked up here and there throughout the year. Luckily for me, I had alot of inspiration through some challenges at LifePreservers Scrapbook Club.
First up is a Halloween gate that I bought in two seperate pieces. I then bought some hinges to put them together after painting it black. I then cut out the cat, sign and pumpkin from the Oct 31 cricut cartridge, added moss and a battery powered light to the back of the pumpkin.
Next is a Twilight Inspired book and mask that I made, complete with vials of blood!!!! For the mask, I used MME’s Spider’s Web Collection, Prima butterfly, and various other elements. “Bite Me” in red glitter alphas are going around the right eye.
The book includes Prima butterfly and crystal flourish, silver cross pin (found in wedding section of Michaels) and several other “blood related” expoxy stickers and such to finish off the book. I made the flowers by using white flowers and adding the Adirondack red pepper alcohol ink (Tim Holtz) to get it the blood red color I wanted.
Next is a beautiful faux book that I bought at Michaels and added some elements like a cream doily, Prima vine and flowers, and other random items to create a nice family “keepsake box”.
And last is a little frame with bats “flying” around made with again, MME’s Spider’s Web collection.
