Luckily, I have a few lying around. Do I create a Christmas one or Halloween? Pfft...why did I ask myself that!
I wanted to work around this couple from the Found Relatives. I did a little distress tinting and tucked them into the Big Ticket die. Funny, I was wishing I had this die. And then I saw it on my shelf...and I do. Oops, some one owns a lot of dies. I created the big ticket to look like Eroded Metal...YUM!
I ended up making a shaker box with these gross Ants. I cut clear packaging with the Big Ticket die and crackled the "glass". Creepy.
I threw every Halloween/ Autumn die I own at it. Well, not really. Movers and Shapers mini pumpkin and the Autumn Gatherings. Then a Layered Leaf cut in the back.
I wanted to add a word band. But I wasn't feeling it. So I bent it, then I was feeling it.
Behind the couple I added another Layered Leaf, a tattered pine cone flower and this creepy spider.
For the spine I added the skeleton rub. The book is inked with distress inks. When I added texture paste with my Halloween and Shattered stencils it absorbed the ink.
The back of the book! Here I stamped the skull from Apothecary. You can see more texture paste and stenciling.
More Eroded Metal, more crackled packaging that I inked with honeycomb. I layered a glassine cut layered leaf the mini antlers and this mini skull from the $1 Store.
When the book is opened more creepiness inside. The Laboratorie paper is the background with more distress ink and stencils.
I layered lots of Halloween cuts here. My first time using the headstone.
I inked the ring binder so it wasn't so chrome looking then another rub.
I inked up the pumpkin parts with more glassine and rusty hinge stain. The parts are painted rusty hinge then crackle painted. I love my owl perched.
The Worn Cover open.
I loaded in some of my Halloween tags.
A good way to keep seasonal tags.
All done and tucked away. I have just the spot to display this in my Crafty space.
