Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge 17 HAPPY FALL Y'ALL

It's time for another fantastic challenge over at

                                                          Challenge #17 Happy Fall, Y'all! 
Many of us like to purchase NEW seasonal products EVERY season. What happens to last year's fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving products? We HOARD them! Drag out those hoarded fall-themed items and make a project to share with us! You can make something for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any other fall or harvest celebration!

Challenge 17 is sponsored by 
Check out her store! She has some absolutely fantastic collage images.

For my piece I created a page in my art journal.
I wanted to just play and with Halloween just around the corner my muse went that way.
Polly's Paper Studio Collage images
Lindy's Stamp Gang mists
Dusty Attic Chipboard
Echo Park paper and die cuts
Tim Holtz stamps
Tissue paper, cardboard, doily & tape

The chandelier is from Dusty Attic and colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang 
Screamin Banshee Black mist.
I love how it mirrored the one in the collage image almost perfectly.

Up close of some of the images from the store.

The background is various Lindys mists which I spread with a wet paintbrush.
Stamping with several stamps and Solvent ink.

More of the layers.
Tissue paper and tape also are added for more layers.
Cardboard from a box and doily also added under the focal image.

I'm in love with all the images from the store.
Can't wait to create more with them!


      Make sure to stop by the other team members blogs to see what they have created, and welcome the newest member Wendy to the group.

         Then make sure to head over to Craft Hoarders Anonymous and link up your fall project.
                                                             You have 2 weeks.
                                          Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This layout has such a wonderfully Gothic feel...the colors, the images and that spook-tacular chandelier are beautiful together. I love all the layers, the bits and pieces of found items and ephemera..the stamping, the dripping fabulous!
