SPOOKTACULAR SELFIE | Nathalie DeSousa October 30, 2018 07:00
Happy Halloween everyone! Oh, how i miss the day my kids would dress up for the day, all the preparations, the make up and all the candy afterwards (well, there is still candy!!); now that theya are teenagers all I am left with are sweet memories of Halloween's past. So, i pulled a few pictures from a couple years ago to create this page using some of the new JustNick Studio cut files.
There are so many cut files to chose from, and it was so hard to pick one, that i decided to mix four cut files in one page.
I combined one of the Basic Heart cut file images with the Spiderweb 2 background and Web cut files to create the cut out for this page. I chose to cut it from black cardstock, so that it would stand out from the mixed media background (created with Jane Davenports Mermaid Markers).
Before setting the cut out on the page, a bit of white acrylic paint was rubbed on the cardstock, this gives the cut out that worn/antique look you see in the layout.
The pictures were sized so that they fit in between the two spiderwebs inside the heart, and then i used stickers and embellishments from a few Halloween collections (Simple Vintage Halloween from Simple Stories, Pink Paislee's Spellcast and Pebbles' Midnight Haunting) to add some small details aroun the page.
For the title of this page, I chose the new Happy Halloween cut file to create the "SPOOKTACULAR" part of the title. It was cut from black cardstock and then treated to a white acrylic paint wash.
Now it is time to go and set all the candy in bowls for us to share (well a bit of it, at least!). Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio store to check all the cut files used here and all other beautiful designs. You can always contact me if you have questions on how this all came together!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!
