Fall Decorating


Project Week Continues!  I have a couple of Fall Decorating projects that I wanted to share too. 


I created this using some various odds and ends that I had laying around the scrap room.  What started it was a trip to the antique store where I found the orange ade cap.  I thought it would be perfect for a Halloween scrapbook page.  As I started thinking about it, I remembered this old photo album that I picked up at a garage sale many years ago.  I thought it was cool, but I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  Especially when I realized that the pages had spiders and cobwebs on it.  Well…spiders and cobwebs was what I was thinking about when I remembered the pages and knew what I was going to do with the page.  I had some letter tiles and I used those to spell out “boo.”  I used a piece of vintage seam binding to tie a bow around one side of the frame.  The raven is a glitter sticker, the owl is a piece of grungeboard painted with black paint, and the bat is grungeboard with black glitter.  I added a piece of black cardstock to the back and grabbed a Halloween photo (circa 2001) that included count Dracula, the good witch, and Pikachu.  


I saw the idea for these pumpkins on Alisa Burke’s website here.  This pumpkin was my second attempt.  I used Tulip Slick fabric paint in white for the design and Tulip metallic purple fabric paint for the purple dots.  This pumpkin went to Paul and Deborah for having us over for their pumpkin carving party. 


This pumpkin was my first try.  I didn’t really like the way the green looked, so I kept this one for myself.  It is growing on me…

The weekend is moving ever so much closer.  I can’t wait.  I will have a special post tomorrow for a special person in my family. 

Happy Thursday!
