What's Up Wednesday - Halloween Hodgepodge Mini Album


Hi Paper Wings fans! Dana here today sharing a Halloween Hodgepodge mini album today. I'm really loving the Halloween Hodgepodge Mixed Media Kit! I used the new kit as well as bits and pieces of previous Nesting Components Kits to create this album.




I stamped the Large Katrina skeleton into the focal point of my album cover using the black StazOn ink included in the kit and then colored in the background of the circle with a Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush Pen. I placed a piece of Fusible Webbing over the stamped image and melted it with a heat gun to give the look of cobwebs.


I also fused webbing over the embellishment cluster and added a couple spiders to play up the creep factor.


I had a lot of fun dressing up the inside pages of this album. I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil from the kit on the inside cover of the album. I stamped sentiments on both the outer and inner front covers using the Halloween Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set.


This skull print paper bag is one of my favorite items in the kit. I added a die-cut frame, hand-dyed tag and ribbon to the bag (all included in the kit) and punched holes through the top for use an an album page. The letter stickers I used to spell 'boo' are from last months Well Dressed Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit.


Another favorite item from this kit is the strip of black caution tape. I used less than half of it to embellish this 6x6 piece of patterned paper. I stamped a set of ghosts onto the page using the Fall Add Ons Clear Stamp Set.

I have plenty of pages in this album to document my daughters as they trick-or-treat and the following neighborhood Halloween Party. In addition to the fun embellishments included in this kit, I also filled the pages with images cut from the Halloween 1 and Halloween 2 Clip Art Sheets. I'll be sure to share the entire album once I've added the photos and some journaling, so be sure to stop back in November!

If this is your first stop to the blog this week, you'll want to check out the fantastic projects shared by our Guest Designers, Agnieszka and Kathleen. They'll both be back again with more inspiring work before the end of the month.

If you're still working with last months Well Dressed Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit, Erica's fantastic Thank You Card Set is a must-see.

If you're looking to take a break from Halloween and Thanksgiving crafting, Katie shared a fabulous Copic Coloring Tutorial that has great tips for use all year long.

Lastly, we'd love to have you join our October Challenge. Create a project using the colors Orange or Black or the theme Halloween and share it with us before the end of the month for your chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Paper Wings Productions Store!
