Given that it's October, I decided to create a Halloween themed layout using my costume from last year. I usually spend weeks planning, but last year I waited until the last minute. (And I did that again this year!) After watching some youtube makeup tutorials for zipper faces, I made this, and was surprised that it turned out better than I expected. My mother-in-law says she can't even look at this photo, because it's too gruesome.
For this month's Scrap Our Stash challenge, you're given this sketch for inspiration and instructed to dig into you stash and incorporate a metal component, I used red safety pins attached via brads to create a banner. You can't tell, but I appreciate that they actually move and sway when you move the layout. Happy Halloween and happy crafting!
Detail shots! For the background, I dyed modeling past in red and added it with a stencil, along with some red ink drips. I also used the red ink to dye white thicker alphas. You can also tell I'm really into messy pen outlines lately.
