Hi everyone, it's Katherine here, welcome to my 1 layout in 3 different ways. I'm using the very creepy Wonderfully Wicked collection. These papers are packed with pumpkins, so they were perfect for my pumpkin carving photos.
Olaf and the Creeper by Katherine Sutton
I started with the Double Dot Dark Denim Vintage paper for the base and then layered up some of the Apothecary and Wretched papers as photo mounts. I love that there are so many bits you can cut out of these papers so I cut out several pumpkins and also a pumpkin frame from the reverse sides of the 2 papers. Next I added a few elements from the Noteworthy collection in the form of a Halloween card and a large glass jar and pumpkin tab and the creepy tab at the top of the page.
For my next version I started to distress and tear and add some dimension to the page. I covered some muslin in black ink and then tore small sections out of the Double Dot paper and backed it with more of the Wretched Paper. I added my little row of pumpkins onto foam dots and distressed and inked everything with black ink, curling the edges upwards. I created some folds in the Halloween card and then carefully inked along the creases to make them stand out more. Finally I added a chipboard candle stick and a little spider banner sticker from the stickers.
The final version has to include some glitter paste! I am really enjoying using this product - it doesn't take ages to dry and gives you such a beautiful effect. I mixed together in equal amounts 2 pastes - Copper and Citrus Orange, and then used the lace stickable stencils - which give a crisp image. I added a little sprinkling of watered down white gesso to finish off the page.
I used a little bit of the left over paste on the bottom of my pumpkins and the candle stick just using the edge of the palette knife to add a little more sparkle.
Here is a close up of one of the larger lace stencils - you get really good definition with the paste.
Even on the smallest of stencils you still get a great image too!!
I hope you've enjoyed my project and it's given you some inspiration check back for more Wonderfully Wicked inspiration tomorrow.
