Trick or Treat x 323 October 2012 | By Katrina in Page Layouts, Pennants, Uncategorized
Katrina here again and I actually DO have a Halloween themed post! I LOVE Halloween, but for some reason I don’t craft for it a lot. My roomie took these pictures of me with the dogs last year. I had actually forgotten about them, but when I started going thru my files found them and decided to scrap them. No, we didn’t take the dogs around the block or anything like that! But, it’s fun to dress them up and since a couple of them are pet therapy dogs, costumes can come in handy sometimes. I used the new Pebbles Halloween collection, Tricks and Treats.
I knew the Celestial set had some perfect pieces for this, so I dug out a few stars and a moon. I had thought about the clouds, but since I was planning on using some glitter, decided against them! The moon was painted with some gold metallic paint and then I sprinkled glitter on it while the paint was wet. The star started out with some Martha Stewart glitter paint, but I didn’t really like the sheer color, so I used a rust colored glitter over the glitter paint. I added some faux stitching to the “costume ideas” tag with my Zig Millennium pen.
I then started on the other three star. The acrylic one I smeared with some Rock Candy Distress Stickles, just for the sparkle. The other two I did the same as the moon, except one of the stars I gave a white paint base too. I love the fact that the glitter doesn’t seem to be getting all over everything, since I applied it while the paint was still wet.
I was trying to come up with a title and when I placed my Small Pennant pieces below my picture it finally hit me! I just covered the pennants with pattern paper from the collection, trimmed, and sanded. And those holes I punched with just a regular hole punch. I then pulled out my Twinery twine in Lilac and made some bows. I did glue my pennant pieces down, so they aren’t just hanging loose. Pennants are a perfect place to place your title, or part of a title, to make it stand out.
Thanks for stopping by today!! BOO to you!
