Too cute to spook

Hi guys, Back today with a scrap book page or at least my version of one!!! we don't really do much scrapbooking or do Halloween over here but i had a fabby picture of Tegan taken when she had been painting at playgroup with black paint!! most of which she got on her lol, she also had a little bed head going on too so I took the picture thinking she looks  so cute and it will come in for Halloween!!! 
Over at Dusty Attic they have a fab sketch again, with the theme of Halloween if possible, well here goes Mmmm!!!!

I actually used three images of the photo but have managed to cover most of one of them he he, the papers are a mixture of brands and used them for the colours,

I wanted to create a Halloween scene so i loosely followed the sketch and used some of the papers with layering, paint splats and stenciling using a DD Stars stencil on the top using Studio 490 Embossing paste in Metallic silver and a spiderweb one at the bottom,this is done using DD modeling paste,

the black paper art pumpkin, cross, gear and cat are also from DD, the grass die is by Noor,
The awesome  Dusty Attic Chipboard skeleton clock I added black soot and weathered wood distress inks too and i did the same for the DA cogs #1 too, the DA twig I left in it's natural colour,
The skull, ghost  and bones are by La La La Land crafts, tree is a Memory Box die,
Flowers are from Sweet lilac and my stash, remember we have an Autumn Colour challenge over at the Sweet Lilac blog
Behind the photo's is a Tim Holtz Rickety house die, it only comes out to play once or twice a year so i thought I'd give it an airing lol,
The spiderweb die is by La la Land crafts too and the fabby spider and large bat on the other side was a gift from a friend, thanks hunny,
The wooden letters I bought the other day and thought they looked more spooky placed like this,
To finish off the page I added Snow Tex here and there to create a dusty, cobwebby ( Technical term) look,
Full view again, I'm loving using these Dusty Attic pieces which  give added interest and texture to my projects which as you know is something I love to do, here is the gorgeous DA sketch,

Having said we don't do Halloween I will be back soon hopefully with a couple of other projects on this theme, for DT work!!  one of which will be on scheduled post as were away for a few days on a little hols, It's  been pouring down with rain and freezing cold today, so hope that goes away before next week too, lol

Happy Crafting!!
