Spooky Mixed Media Piece on Printed Cardboard

Have you ever bought a particular set of items to be used to create something and had some really great leftovers? That is what happened to me recently. I purchased the Krafty Halloween Paper to create a banner for Halloween. I had used a few different substrates from Canvas Corp Brands to create this spooky mixed media piece and a set of Folder Cards.

I had  forgotten about the Branches Cardboard that I had purchased. I knew if I distressed it a little by pulling apart some of it to expose the ridges, adding Glimmer Glaze and misting the rest in spooky colors, it would be a perfect backdrop to a Halloween piece.

The leftover banner pieces reminded me of little houses. I decided to cut them into two pieces and Glimmer Mist them a few different colors.

I cut the bottom part of the house an inch smaller than the roof. I then used the left over bits from the Mixed Media Origins Mini Art Fall Days that I for my banner to add some personality to the houses. I also added a spider charm with black cord to take it to the next level.

Finally, it was time to assemble the piece. I cut out some of the images from the Krafty Halloween Pack as well as from the Mixed Media Origins Mini Art Fall Days to add to it. I did not want it to look like houses, but to elude to the idea of haunted houses.

The finished piece will look wonderful showcased in a frame for Halloween.

What will you create with your leftovers?

 

HAlloween Folder Cards

 

I purchased the Krafty Halloween Paper to create Halloween cards for friends and family. I really liked the sheet with images and thought they would make wonderful ATC’s. I noticed 7gypsies had Printed Files that complimented the spooky images. I created three sets of ATC to mail out with festive cards to my crafty friends.

I added a few things from my stash to make them personal, yet still respecting the gorgeous art already present on them. In each file there are two ATCs. I added a little deco foil to each card to enhance the beauty and topped each with a few drops of Nuvo Glitter Dew Drops in Midnight.

Once the cards were dry, I placed them in their file, wrapped with waxed twine and tied off with a sweet little charm.

I am sure my friends will enjoy receiving these as much as I  enjoyed creating them.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
