When you have a great photo, creating a mixed media layout around it is so much fun. Linda shows us how on the blog today with this layered, painted, textured, stamped….layout that will inspire you to make your own spooky layout. Halloween is fairly new to Norway, here is a great article with the history of Halloween in Norway. It is funny to know that the cartoon – Charlie Brown’s the Great Pumpkin was translated in the 90’s and kicked off the interest in Halloween. The article points out that “instead of saying “trick or treat” in English when the door is answered, Norwegian kids say “knask eller knep” or “digg eller deng” which both mean about the same thing as the English phrase.” Halloween is a fun tradition that gains popularity more and more around the world, with Halloween parties, costume events, parades and of course gathering goodies while trick or treating.
In Norway, Halloween is a new thing, and last year we had our first Halloween party. I think mom (me) enjoyed it just as much as the kids. I got to make invitations, decoration, cakes and do theater make up. The picture in the layout is of my girl, all ready for here friends to come. Enjoy my video to see how I created this mixed media layout.
