As each day passes.. it’s feeling more and more like fall. Before we know it .. it will be Halloween! I thought I’d share with you a Halloween layout I did for my Cousin .. of her little grandson William. This was one of my projects for the Tattered Angels Educator Blog. I wanted to give you the links to the Tattered Angels Blogs.. because I think people know about the "Designer Blog"..but didn't realize that there is also a "Educator Blog".. and there is so much great information there! The difference is..The Designer Blog is where the designers show off finished projects they have created using Tattered Angels products. The Educator Blog is where the Educators (teachers) show HOW to use the different projects. Both are fantastic places for inspiration. There are a few of us who are Golden Ambassadors and both design and teach.. so we post on both blogs...usually posting the projects on the Designer blog and how to create it on the Educators Blog. Make sense?? lol Anyway.. lots of great info to take in .. on both so check them out if you get a chance.
Here we go..
I used Glimmer Glam along the edges of they patterned paper, and painted with it to accent the tag design, the edge of the “Trick or Treat” piece and on the leaves and vine of the pumpkin stamp from the Halloween stamp set from Tattered Angles. I’ll show you in three easy steps .. how to make this cute little jack-o-lantern.
The black background piece is a die from AccuCut. I misted a plain piece of white cardstock with Maple Sugar and Apple Glimmer Mist , and cut it to be added to the back of the die cut piece to show through the bracket shaped openings.
Steps to make Jack-o-lantern
First step .. just stamp the jack-o-lantern on white cardstock. (I always stamp a few extras.. that way I have them if I make a mistake or for future projects)
Second step is to paint your stem and leaves with either Glimmer Glam or Glimmer Glaze. I used Green “Glimmer Glam” for the Leaves and “Cowboy” Glimmer Glaze for the vine.
Let dry completely before going on to the next step. ( It dries quickly)
Hope you have fun giving this a try!
What's going on in my world??? well....
Sometimes you just have to force yourself and DO IT. That's what a told myself the other day when I started pulling everything out of my studio ... so I would finally PAINT! I have been talking about doing this forever! But ... I knew just getting everything out.. and then back in again.. was going to be a huge huge job.. and take some time. (which is what was scaring me). Time? Doesn't seem like there is alot extra of that these days. lol But... I decided it had to be done and if I didn't just start one of these days I'd just keep "talking" but never get going. These walls have not be painted since this was Jarad room. eeeek I also need to paint the hosier! That ugly color is the color it was when I bought it ( is was a great price..so painting it wasn't a concern at the time). As you can see.. I have lots of stuff in this room...so it somewhat took away from the bllllahhhhhhh walls and cabinet. Now the plan is to paint them both. I think I'll have to go with some color that is "not too much" for the walls ( and trying to keep it light in here), because once I get all the stuff back in, it's pretty busy..(to say the least)lol. Not sure on the hosier either. Any ideas for the walls and Hosier??? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
here's where we are at this point. blechhhhhh
Dan has the day off today and is planning to start patching nail holes ect.. With him working 12 hour days and all I have going on .. this might take a while to get done..but like I said.. just HAD to make it happen at this point.
I'd love suggestions. Thanks
