Well, finally, here are my October pages - better late than never! I'm really pleased to have made it 3/4 way through the challenge and although sometimes I'm running a little late I'm still in! Only 3 months to go until the year is complete :-) Leave me a comment here if you're still in and I'll hop over to your blog and see what you've been up to.
This time I went for a Halloween theme obv, because although I don't like Halloween itself I love the images (see previous post). These gorgeously weird and spooky images came from Marsha at Tumblefish Studios. Do check out Marsha's Etsy here.
I painted the background with acrylic paints by Dylusions which are gorgeous to paint with. This is how the page looked in the early stages:
I wanted to add a little extra detail in the corner where the figures were going to be placed so I used a couple of Tim Holtz stamps:
Here's a close up of the spooktacular family, a little altered by me. A touch of the Addams Family don't you think?! The little boy was supposed to have a witches hat too but somehow I lost it. I'm still hopeful it will turn up .....
I used a mask (circle punch) to create a moon and added a few bats (Invoke Arts). Got to have bats for Halloween!
Is it just me or is the new blogger photo uploader rubbish?! It has crashed on me several times this afternoon and although I wanted to add a few more photos to today's post I have had to admit defeat. Grrrrrr.
