Comment on any of the blogs or link up with a Carve It Up themed layout below to win a $10 Silhouette Studios gift card :] Happy blog hopping, and make sure to come back next month on the 29th for our next hop!
My project for this month's theme is a holiday art journal spread...
|I decided to use this month's Studio Calico kit, Roller Rink, as well as the add-on I purchased, Couple's Skate. I recently decided to not save my SC kits exclusively for scrapbooking, even though I still like to keep them intact until they are mostly used up. I added some doodling with a black permanent marker and stenciled some places for journaling.|
|I free-cut the two jack-o-lanterns, and I pieced together all those little candy corn embellishments. The envelope is reserved for stashing wrappers from favorite and unique candies that we may come across this year.|
|Inspired by this PIN I used small scraps to make some leaves. Leaves are my favorite part of Autumn, so of course they would receive mention of a journal spread about my favorite things about Halloween.|
|I used even smaller scraps to make this collage owl.|
|I love that this month's kit came with vellum die cuts. I used the little puff stickers to represent a street of houses for trick-or-treating. I love that gold washi tape, too.|
|I used a hand-cut banner to represent the making of Halloween decorations, and the witch hat is hand-cut to represent handmade costumes, which is a tradition in my household. Sorry about the weird color of the photo!|
|There's the flap I mentioned. I am reserving this space for photos of our costumes this year.|
So, the page is really busy and not like any of my other journal pages at all. But I definitely had fun making all the components, and I look forward to making more pages in these books. I am not sure if I want to reserve this book for Halloween pages, or holiday pages, or just leave it open.
Thanks for hopping with us!
