Happy Halloween

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week!! It's been so cold here the last couple of days. It was in the 20's yesterday morning, as opposed to the 70's a year ago. Ugh. I'm so not ready for winter :( But, in the spirit of fall, I have a Halloween project to share with you today :)


This is a shadowbox project I created, using mostly Tim Holtz dies and stamps. The box was cut with Spellbinders Grand Squares dies and popped up with layers of foam tape for the dimension of the box. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The moon in the corner was colored with a Mustard Seed Distress Marker and a TH Waterbrush. The bats are from Tim's Mini Halloween #1 set, stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink. The tree is a TH Branch Tree die, inked with TH's Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The owl was stamped from the TH Mini Halloween #2 set. The fence is a TH On The Fence die, inked with Walnut Distress Ink. Happy Halloween is from the Mini Halloween #3 set, heat embossed with Zing Vanilla embossing powder.


The skeleton is from the Mini Halloween #2 set. It was heat embossed with Zing Vanilla embossing powder and fussy cut. The spider web is from TH's Mini Halloween #3 set, and it was also heat embossed with Zing Vanilla embossing powder. The spider is from the Mini Halloween set. Several of the elements were popped up with foam tape for dimension.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Spooky
  2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  - Halloween or Halloween Colors
  3. Craftin Desert Divas - Halloween 
  4. DL.Art - October Anything Goes Linky 
  5. Sunday Funday #14 - Anything Goes 
  6. Just B Creative Crazy - October Linky 
  7. Funday Friday Challenge - Anything Goes  
  8. 2 Creative Chicks - Halloween
My new blog design is still a work in progress. I'm having the hardest time getting the colors changed in several text areas. I hope to have all the kinks worked out soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

Hi Lisa. I love the way you created this beautiful shadow box. I love how the owl is starring at the skeleton

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, your shadow box is simply amazing! You always have a way with details and this is no exception... the scene you've created is so dimensional and filled with so many goodies. Even the moon is fantastic! You couldn't have done that any better. The owl and skeleton are freakishly realistic (that's a good thing) and I love that you made the spider red. You never miss a tiny detail, which is one reason I appreciate all of your work. You are truly spectacular, Lisa. :o) Stay warm! It's so cold already! :(

Hugs and blessings!
