H A L L O W E E N!!!!

So, I guess it's a good thing that Altered Pages has so many wonderful Halloween items to play with! Not only does Jean have a plethora of spooky collage sheets, but take a look at these alterables:

Wooden Coffin Panels
 These wooden coffin pieces come in THREE sizes! 5", 7" & 9"! $2 each or all three sizes for $8.95!!!
How much fun could you have with those?! I am picturing a little spooky cemetery on the mantle! Or drill a hole in the top of each piece & create a banner with them! String them up with some of those Halloween lights too! OMG! The ideas are popping into my head as I type!!
Paper Mache Coffins
Or go 3D with the paper mache version - you get all three sizes for one great price! Only $6.25! Cute little lids on these...what surprises would you hide inside? Oh, maybe a spooky-sweet treat for teacher? Creepy crawlies for you sweetie? Hmmmmmmm...

And, you could use these papers & stickers for your Spooktacular projects:

 

And, don't forget that Altered Pages also carries Steampunk gears, pen nibs, flowers & all sorts of other fabulous embellishments to add to your coffins!!!

Add all this together with some of the images from the Halloween collage sheets & you are set!

  2. I think those coffins are awesome! I'm thinking how cool they would be with a miniature memory album inside with photos of the kids' Hallowe'en costumes!

    That Graphic 45 "Steampunk Spells" paper is PERFECT colorways for Autumn and Hallowe'en projects!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
