TGIF Everyone! What a MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS day it is today!!! Today is a very special day for me because it was my turn to come up with a project to challenge my DT girlfriends. I started out as scrapbooker so I went back to my roots for this challenge. I used to really enjoy making little scrapbooks and one of my favorites is the 'paper bag book'. So, I decided to ask the DT to make something with a Fall or Halloween theme using a brown paper lunch bag.
You can also enter the challenge with your own creation. The details are posted on Magnolia-licious Hightlites Challenge Blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
Here's my creation. I JUST LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!
Tilda the Good Witch
I just think this image is so cute! She looks as if she just plunked down in the middle of those pumpkins! The image is Witch Tilda & Pumpkins and she is sitting up against the image titled Pumpkin & Leaves. I don't see that either are currently in stock at Magnolia-licious right now, but let Diana know and I'm sure she'll get them for you. The very first thing I did with my paper bag was to spray the entire surface with black Glimmer Mist. It has a silver shimmer to it and the effect is gorgeous. The dp's are from BG's 'Eerie' collection and cs is Bazzill. The black flower is by Magnolia. All ribbons are from my stash. I collect ribbons, paper and flowers so I have a pretty good assortment. The gems are from Little Yellow Bicycle.
This photo shows how the poem slides out of the pocket that was created when I folded the bag in half. Along the crease, I punched three holes, secured them with eyelets, and added the ribbons.
I found this poem on the internet and there was no author listed. The picket fence was punched with a new MS punch for Halloween. The embellies are from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Here's the inside of the card. The embellies are from Little Yellow Bicycle, The Paper Company and Jolee's Boutique. I used my Nestibilities to cut the jagged circles for the sender of the card to write a personalized message. The shape reminds me of a spider web, so I added the cute little spiders to it. The sentiment on the right is by Hero Arts. #479 Bat is by Magnolia and is available right now at Magnolia-licious.
I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger Distress Inks. The details are as follows:
Copics - E00, 02, 42, 43, 44, 50, RV21
DI's - black soot, walnut stain, weathered wood, shabby shutters, spiced marmalade, dried marigold, wild honey, bundled sage, forest moss, dusty concord
That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of your lovely comments that you leave behind. I read everyone of them and they always bring a smile to my face. I truly appreciate them :-)
