EERIE HALLOWEEN~

Here is my Halloween project that I made.  I decided to make a scrapbook page on the scary side!



I used a piece of Halloween scrapbook paper.  On it I have used several different pieces of collage sheets.  Especially ones from Altered Pages.  I added a mini bottle, a skeleton cabochon, some material flowers and a skull ribbon all from Altered Pages.

Supplies used:
Altered Pages:  skull ribbon, skeleton cabochon, material flowers, small bottle, collage papers, paint
From my stash: paper, various Halloween ephemera

Hi there, Francine again with my post for June

I decided to make an oversized Tag with a Steampunk theme.   Perfect for Father's Day.

I stamped the tag with the Male Steampunk, deeply etched Red Rubber Stamp from AlteredPages using Memento Luxe ink in the Pistachio color.  Yummy & luscious to work with.



I then  distressed the stamp with  Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Luxe ink in Peanut Brittle.  I cut the hat from the stamp and put it on top of the man's head and added glitter to it.  He has a gear on one eye and a monocle, timepiece and embellishments were added to the bottom on paper used as a border from The Glitz Paper Pack, Laced with Grace.   On top of the tag is a round Steampunk embellishment and a chain that hangs over the top of the tag.

This was so much fun to make as I love anything Steampunk.   Watch for more Steamy goodness!

I am so excited that next week I will be in a class with Mr. Tim Holtz himself at Scrapper's Playground on Long Island.  This should be a fun class as I love all his work and can't wait to meet him.   Tim Holtz is one of the finest artists in mixed media.
