Hey Bella friends! Missy back with you today. It's almost Halloween! Yippee! One of my favorite things about Bella's new Spooktacular collection is the addition of that pretty blue color. I love that it's a nontraditional Halloween color. I was immediately inspired by it and wanted to incorporate it into my page. I love adding paint and other mixed media products into my layouts, so I began with some white cardstock and some orange acrylic paint. Adding paint is a great way to add in a color you may not have a lot of as far as paper goes, so it can act as a patterned paper if you want it to. That's what I did here with the orange on the background. I had a lot of orange going on in my photo, so I added a layer of orange paint several layers behind my photo. It's separated from the photo quite a bit so it doesn't overload the page with that one color.
I decided to add in some pops of the blue paint as well. Since there are a few cute Trick-or-Treaters in the photo with my daughter, I just had to use this cute little witch from the Paper Pieces pack. I love that she's looking toward the title. I did some straight stitching to give her something to stand on and added more orange paint behind her.
Here's a close-up of the cute little witch. I also added in some of the washi stickers and some of the Fundamentals stickers. I cut "spooks" on my Cameo with some of the purple paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad and paired it with some black Tiny Text alphas. I love the mix of color, especially the purple.
I added a lot of layers behind my photo, including some 6x8 papers and a cut-apart piece. I also added a cute die cut I had laying on my desk and a orange dotted glassine bag from my stash. I stitched a black square around the entire thing to make it stand out a little more.
Here you can see the layers and the blue paint I added. I also added some blue tangled thread and a tag at the bottom. It's a lot of fun to mix and match all the different products & colors. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
