Cast your spell...

Ok, Ok
I know it's no where near Halloween but I wanted to share this layout I did for Scrapbook News and Review.
My attempt to show that you DO NOT need to so layouts on just paper.

The base of this layout is a piece of 12x12 cradleboard (most art supply and big box stores sell them).
I love working on wood, it doesn't warp, bleed, buckle or fall apart no matter what you do to it.

   I first covered the board with a layer of Black Gesso. The great thing about Black Gesso if you have never tried it is how quickly it covers and dries. It provides a different spin on the traditional White Gesso.
  It is then spray heavily with Lindy's Stamp Gang (Ghostly Gargoyle White) mist. Hard to tell in the photo but you can sort of see some of the drips. The tag and Tattered Angels frame were misted with LSG Witch's Potion Purple mist, and the background of the title is LSG Hag's Wort Orange.

  I layered a piece of German text and a scrap of striped paper under my photo. Stamped some flourishes and bats with silver ink and finished it off with a large black spider, a strip of tulle and a key.

 I crack up at this picture, what you can't tell (but might get a sense of) is that the little one is chewing me out for delaying the start of trick or treating. She'll usually pose willingly but not if it is standing in the way of free candy.

  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Hi Christy! It's nice to see a layout from another season and be able to appreciate it. During Halloween there are so many. Cute story--you should know better than to stand in the way of CANDY!
