I have always wanted to go as the Bride of Frankenstein for Halloween! I think it would be fun for my husband and I to dress and Frank and Bride. One of these years. How morbidly cute are these two?
I have started scrapping my pages with a little freedom built into them. What do I mean by this? Well, as you can see, there are no photo mats. When you create a page using no distinct photo mats, it gives you room to play with photos later. You can add 5x7s, 4x6s or lots of 4x4s or 3x3s and the best part of all? You can add a variation of all sizes. Add as many or few as you would like. It is a freedom I have come to love about designing this way. Be honest, what do you think about it?
The title is large! It is a 3D title in that the letters are popped up from the black shadowing. The "MONSTER" is cut from glitter card stock and the "MASH" is cut from distressed looking papers.
The mummy is so thick! All of the characters are. There is tons of layering that make up each image. making them sturdy. I cut extra layers for the mummy so he would have that genuine wrapped look. I also used Stickles for his eyes and black spots, which gives the glitter look I was going for. The spider web behind him is accented with a silver glitter gel pen and the spider is cut from faux suede paper and popped up for dimension. He has glitter eyes, too.
A little more of a close-up so you can see all of the glitter effects.
The title. The letters are inked with purple
Journaling frame. It is actually 2 frames layered one on top of the other. The bottom one has white glitter that shines through the edges of the smaller, upper frame. Now that I look at it, I think it needs gems with I will go in and put on. Don't you think? I love the little pumpkin. He's a bit different but certainly fits in with this crowd.
He's a cooky little guys, isn't he? :D
I love tulle and I think it looks great with Halloween decor! Plus I think it brings the feminine touch the pages needs. The little "button" has a 31 on it.
Notice that through out the spread, I have distressed and inked the edges.
And here they are! Looks like she is taking his hand for a dance that he is reluctantly asking for, doesn't it? Cracks me up.
Here's Frank. I love his expression. He is so not impressed! Again, I used Stickles for his eyes and the white V part of his neck. His bolts are cut from brushed metal looking paper. I also cut extra pieces so that there was a distinction between his shirt, pants and shoes.
I also inked around his face and hands to add some dimension.
I think she looks ghoulishly-fabulous! °Ü° I added some purple chalk to her hair and her famous white stripe is decorated with glitter (Stickles). He dress was cut from spider web paper, but was a little boring so I took my glitter gel pen and traced the web to give her some more sparkle!
Here you can see all the layers and the fact that they are popped off the page. The black cat is also cut from black faux suede paper and has red glitter eyes and a little purple bat color.
So that's it! I love Halloween and had a blast creating this page. I have at least 2 more spreads I am working on from the cartridge; Happy Hauntings.
Happy Haunting to you! ;)
