My favorite holiday is Halloween! It is so much fun to scrapbook those treasured moments of a fun night with my sweet grandchildren. Pull out your favorite Halloween photos and create this adorable layout! Today’s inspiration is from the very talented Anna-Karin. She has so many inspiring projects, so be sure to jump on over to Layers Of Ink. I promise you’ll be so glad you did!
Start with die cutting the Rickety House from Tim Holtz. This was cut with grungeboard and painted with a variety of distress paints. It was sanded, inked, and stamped with a spider and spider web stamp. Mica was used for the windows. The tree was also done with green, brown, and black paint.
You can see the texture on the house in the photo below.
Use a fence die cut in front of the school and place the row of little witches in front of the fence.
The background of the layout is Motif cardstock. This has an embossed pattern and will resist ink and paint. You need to wipe the paint off from the embossed parts before it dries completely. For this layout, Picket Fence paint was used along with splattered green paint.
Stamp more witches and a blueprint hat and lightly color with distress ink. Cut out and apply to the layout.
A big thank you to Anna-Karin for a job well done. Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s fun Halloween layout and Anna-Karin’s wonderful inspiration.
Have a fun crafting day! Thank you for your visit.
