Halloween Frame

Happy Friday to you, I hope you have your Halloween costumes all picked out if you celebrate Halloween. My little one is going to be a Pirate Princess and even her daddy is dressing up, he is a Pirate, this should make some really good scrapbook pages..he he. This weeks challenge was to take some kind of home decor item and turn it into a Halloween creation. So I took an old photo frame I had and started creating.
                               You can see the photo frame is pretty basic, nothing really to it at all.
 I started out by laying the frame on white card stock and traced where the photo cut outs would be and trimmed them out.
Let the stamping begin.............I used H-917 You Need To Dust, D-488 You Shake My Bones and CL-002 Trick or Treat. I stamped the images randomly around my white card stock, then using my Copic Markers, I air brushed a grey tint around the frame, to make it look spooky.
I used a few Spellbinders™ die templates S4-279 Graveyard Scene and Shapes, S4-280 Halloween Fence Scene and Shapes and S4-277 Nested Bats.
        I added some orange festive fringe around the frame and adhered my die cut outs to the frame.
I mixed some Scrap Happy Glue and some You're So Fine Terrifically Teal Glitter then carefully brushed it on the die cut pieces, it really looked cool like they kind of glowed in the dark, well that's the look I was going for. Thanks for stopping by my post today.

Neat idea to use the glitter and the glue together! What a cute little Halloween bugger you have there. :)

That turned out great. Love your use of the spellbinders as embellishments in front of the pictures.
