HAPPY HALLOWEEN |Nathalie DeSousa October 19, 2020 07:00
Nathalie with you today to kick off Halloween week here in the JustNick Studio blog. Though my kids are teenagers now, and were never big into celebrating Halloween, I still like to go back and bring past memories for my designs. With so many new and beautiful cut files in the shop, it is so easy to put pages together quickly.
How fun is this Halloween page in non-traditional colors. I really wanted something happy and lighter to document these pictures. So, I started by adding a bit of watercolor that matched the colors in the Days of Splendor collection by Pinkfresh Studio.
While the background dried, I cut the spiderweb design from black cardstock using the new Halloween Icons cut file.
At the same time, I cut -from white cardstock - the Happy Halloween cut file three times. While I stacked and glued this together -to form a dimensional title-, I cut the design one more time from patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio's Days of Splendor collection.
To set up the layout, first I added a frame of patterned paper around the entire layout; then, carefully, I attached the spiderweb die cut to the center of the page, and then added the title atop the spiderweb. I used the negative parts of the patterned paper title die cut to back the title empty letter space.
I added a few embellishments from the same collection and Simple Stories Boo Crew through the page. This was so fun and easy to put together. Those non-traditional colors get a Halloween"y" feeling with the addition of the black spiderweb. I hope you are inspired by this page, and check the cut file design in the Just Nick studio shop.
