First I prepped my paper with gesso and then used the packaging technique with watercolors to add oranges, red-orange, and gold to the background. I finished by adding splatters once it was dried.
I super love this text paper instead of white cardstock for a change!
I used the cut apart paper (the little 2x2 squares) to make little banner ends for both sides of the photo. I added messy threads in matching colors to add dimension in a few places.
The 12x12 sticker sheet , clips, and die cuts and pieces pack gave me plenty of things to embellish with. I also love the Doodlebug Design enamel eyeballs.
Here are my other Halloween pages I have made this month:
This was for the Pinspire Me board for October. I used lots of Doodlebug Boos & Brews and the background border is Bella Blvd, Spooktacular. The photo mat papers are Bella Blvd Trick or Treat.
This was using the same collection- Bella Blvd Spooktacular. I scraplifted Dona, Orange Gearle, for this Mix It Up LO of hers. Here's my background for it.
Messy stenciled chevrons for the three colors. I started with gesso, then added watercolor via packaging technique, and then stenciled with ink pads.
