October 31

 This week Shawn, from Nuts About Sketches, has this super fun sketch for you:

And here is my take on it:

I can't even tell you how much fun I had making this layout! I absolutely LOVE this photo of my son in his skeleton costume from last year and I had loads of fun with some simple editing. I made it black & white then added red to his eyes. I love the way my husband painted his face, the look here is fantastic.

My favorite part of making this layout was using the red dylusions spray on the white cs. I almost couldn't bring myself to put the picture over it when I was done. It looked awesome! Which is why I went with having it stick out from behind at an angle instead of matting the photo, which was my original intention.

 I used the Scraptastic club October kit and just had a lot of fun combining all the elements from the kit.
I even colored the wood spiders black and red to look like black widows. I just used my pens to do it. They went on pretty easy.

 Hope you enjoyed your stop here today! 
Thanks, Ange
