Halloween Projects

This month at Urban Scrapbook, our theme was Halloween for the October challenge.  I created this layout on a wood canvas with my kit:

It looks pretty flat from this angle, but there's a lot of dimension here.  I used Sizzix's Brenda Walton Shadow box die for the striped box and filled it with apothecary bottles and chipboard embellishments.

I pop dotted the skeleton chipboard die cut and adhered his arm to the tulle ribbon, so it looks like he's carrying the box.

My sides of the wood canvas were quite wide, so I covered them with Tim Holtz black Shattered card stock, then crackled with clear crackle paint, and to highlight the cracks, added Viva Gold paint.
The orange border was cut from one of my patterned papers.  This collection of papers and embellishments were from My Minds Eye.

I've had this Brenda Walton ballroom slipper die for awhile, but just haven't had a chance to use it.  I decided to make a halloween slipper.  I had so much fun making this, I can see I'm going to be making a few more!

It's so easy, just die cut the shoe parts and paste together.  I added a Tim Holtz Sizzix Mini Rosette die to the top of the shoe, with a Tim Holtz halloween charm.  On the heel of the shoe is a section of Sizzix's Ironwork Gate Sizzlit die.  The paper is from Teresa Collins.

And lastly, I just wanted to share a tag I made from Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 102 Online class.  It's the only one I've managed to complete so far, the Eroded Metallic Technique and Coloured Crackle. The leaves are Sizzix's Tim Holtz Leaf Blueprint die & Stamp Set.  If you haven't taken any of his classes, I highly recommend them.  You learn so much about his products and how to use them.  

Hope you have all had a great long weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
