Happy Halloween Eve my friends!! Yes, I have once again been negligent of the ol' blog... Sorry. Life has been a little topsy turvy lately and we have new schedule adaptations to make and adapt to. Michael has a change in jobs and his new job entails travel. We have grown rather dependent upon him being available to help out with child transportation and other "domestic" events that now all become my responsibility. Takes some getting used to and leaves less time for papercrafting. Actually, there is still the same papercrafting time as I make that time time for the hobby that aides with unwinding and de-stressing. It's the photo editing and blogging that is less fun and therefore harder to find time for! LOL!
Anyway, I digress!! Halloween! Tomorrow! And with Halloween, the end of the month of October... I have had a few Halloween projects up here and there and thought I would collectively share them with you here in one blog post.
First up, a layout that I created for Craftwell using the eBrush. You can find all the details and how to's HERE on the Craftwell blog. I used Tombow markers in my eBrush with a mask that I cut out with Contact paper using my Silhouette. I just love the way that the water misted markers blended together! I love Crate Paper's "After Dark" collection as well! Mind you, I don't think I've met a Halloween collection I don't love and own...
Hidden journaling strikes once again! That tag has today's memories looking back upon those little people perched on the porch steps awaiting the green light to hit the pavement and go trick or treating! I love Mia's Cheshire cat grin, so incredibly proud of herself in her bee costume!!
My Spooky layout as seen on the Imaginisce blog HERE. Imaginisce hasn't been releasing near the number of collections that they did when I first began designing for them but they are still GREAT collections. Because of the fewer number, there aren't any Halloween or Christmas collections so the "B" sides come in incredibly handy for theme scrapping as I've used here.
These treat bags are up on the Imaginisce blog today. I used the same collections for these as the above Imaginisce layout (Black Ice, Family Fun and Give Thanks). Both projects make heavy use of the Silhouette for the Halloween themed embellishments. That vellum ghost is difficult to make out in the pics but he's just the right element of "trick" for the treats!
Last but not least for today, a mixed media and Bella Blvd layout I did for fun. I've been messing around quite a bit with Gelatos and watercolor lately. This is one of my early layouts as I smooshed (technical term) watercolor puddles onto cardstock.
You can see that some additional stars were added in a subtle manner with texture paste. Bella Blvd has my heart, you know that if you follow my work. The colors, the embellishments! I'm a sucker for BB!
Yet more hidden journaling! I just dont' like ruining my design concepts with the journaling... I put a little bow tie of a ghostly variety on the chipboard ghost! So fun!
Up tomorrow on the Simple Stories blog will be this Halloween layout in addition to a fall layout. The colors scream Halloween, the pictures are most definitely Halloween, all I needed was a few embellishments here and there to support that theme.
I had a tough time finding the bright orange that I wanted so I opted to paint the wood veneer letters. I of course later remembered the basics that I have sitting in my stash which would have been a fantastic compliment!
And that, my friends, concludes your tour of Suzanna Lee's Halloween projects for the year 2015! LOL!! Hope you enjoyed them. Be sure tomorrow to visit the Imaginisce and Simple Stories blogs and leave me some love please! No tricks, just treats! Thanks for stopping in today!
