Happy Halloween!

I don't usually do the Halloween thing but this year with the cool printers trays from McGuffey Woodworking, I just had to participate!  I have had fun using Dreamweaver stencils and various items from the Scrapbook Generation, my local store and some fun things from 7 gypsies and more!  I even used some of the new line of Authentique papers.   So I will show you each component then the finished piece!
I used the cool paper for the background.  And with the trays from McGuffey Woodworking, the backs come off so you can get your designs right up to the edge.  I then stencil with orange matte paste the pumpkins. After dry I stenciled again with crackle paste.  Love that stuff.  I added just a hit of brown in over the top of the crackle. I stenciled the spider first in gold, the black and finally in red.  I added my fun little bottle in the corner.
Sorry this photo is not clearer.  I used some fun papers for the strip across the top of the rectangle then used my faux scrabble tiles for the BOO!  Using matte paste I stenciled the jack-o-laterns.  Once dry I added a little nose on one and hung a fun "skeleton" key for fun.

What is Halloween with out a witching hour?  I first put the bare trees stencil down and sprayed with Fireworks from Tsukineko.  I then just started adding layers of elements. More words, another fun bottle, a clock face for the effect and a moon! Had to think the whole thing was a bit spooky with a fun sticker!
Again, I added the paper and the letters to the box.  Then I added some 3D embellishments and a fun key hole to go with the key from box 2!
As much as I HATE spiders...this is a fun box.  I used the spider web stencil in black glossy paste and tossed some glitter here and there.  I then added 3 spiders.  Each spider is a different paste, one crawling into the box is crackle, the the pearl paste and finally the black glossy.  Again, adding the fun bottle is a great touch.
Again fun paper with edging in brown ink.  I used a partial stencil to get the raven. I just LOVE the scrable type letters and the fun embellishment.  So here is the finished product!
These boxes are so much fun to make and just in time for a haunted Halloween!  I added little stickers and the ruler from 7 Gypsies and a couple of black mosaics just for fun!  Hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween.  BOO!!!
