Halloween Paper Fun II
Not many things are as fun as mixing up papers with a cute picture. This was a great picture of a group of folks in their costumes, looking like a band called the Halloween Treats. If you notice they each have the name of a treat on their guitars. Pieces of several lines of papers were used along with stickers and some hand stitching in a couple places on the edge of the picture. Easy to do, and eye popping with the 'chewed' out pieces of the black paper.
This second layout has utilized some ephemera for added decoration. This is a fun idea especially if you happened to play a game like this at a party where the pictures were taken. This one was filled in with words from the sticker embellishments from the Halloween lines. Multiple types of papers will work. If you are concerned with acidity, papers can always be sprayed with a coating that eliminates this problem.
Last is a layout utilizing the space behind the picture for hidden journaling. Mixing colors from the Daisy D paper pad with more standard papers and colors is a fun way to make something unique. The Basic Grey Bookplate is a good pull tab for this journaling too.Come in and pick up some fun papers for your holiday layouts, cards or other projects. There are quite a few lines to choose from. All of the layouts in these posts are on display at the store as well. It is always better to see them in person--I think.
