31 days of halloween day 1

Yay!!!!, my favourite time of year, yes even better than Christmas LOL. The 31 days of Halloween (for details click linkie)  organized by Smeared and Smudged starts today.

Welcome to day 1 of the craziest bloghop I have ever seen (also the best one),  this is my 3rd year so I know how it works..........make project, post on time, hop and next day start over again. (O the blogroll is in my side bar and it's huge )

And I am also a Cryptkeeper in the countdown to Halloween, see the list of the other 192 participants here

This year I am prepared and have some projects ready and waiting, plan was to Art Journal my way through, but also wanted to do some stamping so I've got 2 projects for you today (no that's not standard for all days LOL)
Here my AJ page using a Rick St. Dennis digi called Autumn Nap , the background is a gelli print and the paints used are  Deco Art Americana acrylics in Red, Orange and Burnt Sienna. The letter are painted using  Deco Art Glamour Dust glitter paint , black Ice. The leaves are a foam stamp, stamped with Dazzling Metallics in glorious gold.
The bats are from a Deco Art stencil called "spooky".





and cause this mouse might be a bit too cute for some of you I thought to add another, a bit more spooky project.
 
As a bonus project I made a tag. I always handcut my tags that way I can make them as big as I need. I wanted to use Vanna Vampire, a RSD image in rubber, available at I Brake for Stamps and for us  Dutchies also available at Koffie Kaartje (contact shop to order, they are not visible in shop yet).
 
 Anyway I cut some black card to the size I wanted and embossed it using a cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I used Deco Art Metallic Lustres to create the matal look.  The colours used are black shimmer and silver spark. It's real easy to work with and the result is sooo awesome. First ad the black shimmer, I used a make up sponge for that, and carefully add the silver spark to the raised parts. Super easy....


 
 
O that's it for today, have fun hopping and leave some love along the way, see you tomorrow and remember the blogroll is in the sidebar
