This picture did not come out as bright as I wanted, but I was also trying to avoid having light reflect from the pictures. The background paper is the Skulls sheet. I used the stars on the reverse.
I started out by creating the tree for the project. I drew this freehand and then used a Fiskars texture plate, Black Distress Ink and some of the Pebbles pearlescent chalks to bring it to life.
I cut the tree larger than I needed it to be so that it could be trimmed. Next time I think I will leave a bit more trunk width.
I cut the frames using Spellbinder dies. Instead of using paper to mat the photos, I thought I would create a frame to go over the top. The sign was cut from one piece, I used the reverse solid side of the Candy Corn on which to stamp.
I will most likely incorporate the leftover pieces into a card or a companion layout.
Now on to the title. I cut one of the strips from the Trick or Treat Strips sheet. EEKS! was perfect.
I achieved this look by using Ranger's Glossy Accents and a variety of Martha Stewart Beads. They really make the page shimmer.
The border strip was created in sections using the Martha Stewart Pumpkin punch and emboss.
