Hi everyone, Carolee here! I *love* Halloween so when I saw the This is Halloween kit, I was so excited! I can't wait to use it all month long! I was really inspired by the fun waterfall of candy like you see going into kids' bags in Halloween cartoons. I wanted to recreate that feeling here on the page while still keeping my more minimal style.
I chose one of my favorite photos from last Halloween of my dogs and me. I matted it first onto one of the personal-sized planner dividers then a piece of white paper that I used distress inks to stencil onto. I also added just a few drops of purple shimmer spray to add a touch of glitter. I put it on a 12x12 piece of black paper from my stash. It's perfect for Halloween and it makes everything pop!
After that, I pulled out the ephemera pieces and sticker sheet to start decorating the sides. I am so in love with that ghost and his silly heart eyes so I knew he had to go on. I took one of the word stickers to use as a title. After that, I picked a few pieces from the ephemera pack to add to either side.
Lastly, I grabbed some sequins from my stash to add even more color, shine and interest to the corners. After that, it was all done!
Hope you liked it! A bit different for me with the black paper but I liked changing it up. Until next time, happy crafting!
