Happy Haunting!

Happy Halloween!

Here's a Halloween layout using Graphic 45's Time To Flourish collection papers.

I hand-cut the designs from the October Flourish and October Cut Apart papers, and further embellished the layout with some muslin and metal findings.

I used pop-up foam dots of different thicknesses to give the layout some dimension.

Here are some close-ups.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and happy haunting! :)

Follow Your Art

It's time for another reveal at My Creative Sketches, and here's this month's lovely sketch.

Using pieces of corrugated cardboard and papers from BoBunny and Prima Marketing, together with some floral vines also from Prima Marketing, I created this layout of my older DD, with photos taken during her recent trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles for an Animation and 3D Arts masterclass, hence the title.

Here are some close-ups.

I used my Martha Stewart Floral Vine Edge Punch on one of the edges ...

... and inked the corrugated cardboard pieces, and then brushed some distress stickles over them to give them a somewhat vintage look to match the papers.

Now, hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and have a look at the lovely prize that's been put together for this month's winner. Looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful layouts!
