Happy Hauntings Reveal

Hi there!

I have my monthly reveal to share this morning!   I was given the Happy Haunting line by Carta Bella to play with, and I had a lot of fun with it.  If you are into texture like me, you will love the weight and feel of this paper, it is really great quality, and includes some fun patterns.

It is a little hard to tell in this photo but this background paper is covered with little bugs.  I added some texture paste in a very random andmessy way to play up the eerie feeling of my layout.
 I am always amazed at how much fun I can have with stickers now and how many fun ways there are to use them.  There was a time I had sworn off of stickers, but now I believe they are a great addition to a kit.  I guess I have learn that I can give them depth or alter them so now I find them more fun.

 I actually stitched on this layout with my new machine and loved it, but you cannot even see it in the photos, ha just my luck! I added a piece of grey cardstock to this layout and framed it with one of the great patterns.

 This layout is my favourite, I really love how it turned out and I love the way the patterns play off of each other.  The hand stitched border really pops, too.

These little pumpkins we created using a Silhouette cut file that I made.  I love them with the layered patterns, so fun!

Since I was having so much fun, I decided to create this altered canvas, it has been way too long since I have created an altered ite,.
 It is simple but whimsical, more layered pumpkins and a monogram, too!

Thanks for visiting!
