Halloween Layout & Card - Imaginarium Designs

Hello everyone and here we are at the end of October, 
tomorrow will be 
31st and most children will be getting excited about
one event that takes place on this day.

Halloween night

Here in Australia we don't really 
celebrate this event, but it is slowing catching on with the local children.
My daughter loves to get dressed as a witch putting on her hat  and black dress
and riding a little broom stick.
Knocking only on the a few local houses that participate on this occasion
with "trick or treat".

Today I am Guest Designer at Imaginarium Designs chipboards, so I decided to createa layout and card, to mark this "Happy Halloween" Day.


I painted all the chipboard with Black gesso. 
Adding white gesso on top of the Picket fence.

Once the black gesso was dry I added Glitzen Glitter - (Black) and with my finger, I spreader it around the chipboard.
The chipboard witch was enlarged for my layout.

I did the same for the Alphas letter - painted them with purple paint and then spreading some Glitzen Glitter - (purple) around the alphas.

I had to put a plastic spider in the flower cluster with the spider web as well. !!


and for my Halloween card 

"Trick or Treat" Card

I painted all the chipboards with black gesso and purple paint for the alphas, applying some Glitzen Glitter on the witch and alphas.

Using Copper Bronze Embossing Powders on the Orate Chipboard Border.

This card was created with Couture Creations "Wild & Free" papers 
andThe chipboard witch is on a collection
of Halloween images from Imaginairum Designs
Halloween board  ISD0020 

The chipboard house, tree, witch on broomstick 
and scary cat, alphas, borders & picket fence,
are all chipboards from Imaginarium Designs

Love these colours together Adriana. The vibrance balances the black perfectly. We're not into Halloween either, but it seems to infiltrate a bit more every year with the children. Thanks for the inspiration.

We don't do Halloween but your page is wonderful, Adriana. Great photo .. your DD looks amazing all dressed up! Love what you did with those chippies .. that bit of sparkle adds just the right touch of glam .. awesome!! Fantastic card too. Love that border chippie .. not so fond of the spider sitting beside your card though .. looks too real .. LOL!!

I don't do Halloween either....just something I can't 'take' to! But I do love how sweet your girl looks. Can't say the same for that spider, sends shivers down my spine! Love the colours you've chosen to scrap with and the glitter looks fabulous, especially on the letters:):)

I am not a huge fan of Halloween (unlike the rest of the world it seems, well at least in the Northern hemisphere) but I adore your colourful canvas and that fab photo of course, she is such a sweety.
The card is a real beauty too, great use of those chippies!!
