Thirty-One October

31 (2)


Ooooo!!!! I can't wait! But I wanna wait 'cause I don't want it to be over yet. I just love Halloween! It is just so much fun and one of the BEST holidays to craft for, in my opinion! It makes me happy. I created this super fun shrine with one of the new kits from Retro Cafe Art. It is the mini-dash Halloween shrine kit and it comes with the bat and the spider! So fun!

I had to stock up on black glitter because when I saw this one I just KNEW I wanted to cover it with fabulous black glitter!!! I added one of the Gravestone ATC Border Overlays to the front after painting it black and spritzing it with a bit of smoke glimmer mist.

Those fabulous trees are also painted black and then spritzed with a bit of shimmer. I also pulled from two digital collage sheets for the background and the heart accent. I used the bird image from Happy Hallow 3 and the wonderful heart came from Happy Hallow 5. I LOVE THESE!!!

This piece was seriously fun to create! Seriously. No. For serious. Just say'n.

And, for those who have stopped by from WOYWW, you can see the aftermath of this, and obviously several other recent projects! HA! Of course, what would WOYWW be without playing a good game of 'figure out what all that stuff on Jingle's desk is'. HA!!!! I hope you all have a super fantastic Wednesday!!!!

Don't forget about the Shrine Kit Contest at Retro Cafe Art!!! You could win some AWESOME prizes!
