Halloween Mixed Media Book

I love to decorate for Halloween and make all kinds of spooky decorations . So today I just want to share this Halloween book I designed for a mixed media class. I created it using pattern papers from different manufacturer  paper lines, Which included Authentic, My Mind Eyes, Thersa Collins and Echo Park . Once I choose the background papers for the book it was so much fun to decorate with stamps and die cuts .
Because I am paper horder, I do have a few kits available for sale  - leave me a comment if your interested . Hope you enjoy !!

Badge_Hazel&Ruby This week IMAGINE Crafts is proud to feature the products from Hazel & Ruby. Our Artists In Residence are here all week to inspire you with their amazing projects using IMAGINE Crafts' products along with a selection of stencils, paper and embellishments from Hazel & Ruby.

Wow, Hazel @ Ruby have some really great products. I loved working with the Boutique Alpha Mask Stencil and when combined with  all the beautiful colors from Imagine Craft Inks your  projects will be masterpieces. So today I created a cute little canvas of my grand daughter, hope you enjoy my project.

1. First adhere tissue paper to canvas using Creative Medium.
2. Next pick your saying and stick the letter mask to your canvas.

3. Using sponge daubers ink till your happy with the results.
4. Peel your letters off, I outlined mine and colored them in with a sponge dauber.
5. Make tissue flowers, just punch out about six scallops per flower. Stack the layers and put a brad in the center and fluff up.

6. I cut a mat for my photo and decorated it with sequins. Add a fun little bling !
7. Punch out some hearts from the tissue paper, I added IrRESTible to the dots for a little dimension.
8. Attach your pieces to the canvas and you have a beautiful piece of art.
9. Sprinkle a few sequins for interest .

The quality of this tissue paper is fantastic, I had plenty left over - so I decided to decorate a pumpkin. I inked the tissue paper with Memento Pumpkin. Tear into strips and covered one of those ugly plastic pumpkins you find at the dollar store.
