Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for sure and I have to say, I've really enjoyed scrapping it this year too. This Spooky Time stack from DCWV is AWESOME! So many fun, spooky papers just begging to be distressed and adorned with fun pictures.
We had a ton of fun playing with the shutter speed settings on my camera last year and we came up with these fun "ghost" pictures. The kids had a blast and even my hubby got into it. This was the pumpkin he carved and if you look closely on the left side of the photo you can see his eery apparition. In the back my daughter is the phantom rising behind the pumpkin. So fun!
These papers are so fantastic and spooky all on their own. You really could just pick a background, lay some photos down and be done. This skulls pattern was one of my favorites, so I added black and red spray for a more spooky effect, layered the diamond skulls across the top and then layered again with the awesome spiders and webs. Seriously cool!
You can see a bit of the distressing I added to the photo here. All you have to do is grab your emery board and go around the edges of your photo, going in farther for the scratches look.
I tucked my tag under the spiders and webs in the corner so it didn't distract from the photo and fun details of the layout. But I inked the edges and the string red first. Then I added this fun skull I had and tried to center an eye over the spiders on the pp. The spiders look real enough that I kept jumping a little when I'd notice them on my table. lol
Have fun creating your own spooky layouts!
