Halloween is a fun spooky day....so why not let your pages feel the same. Embrace the colors - orange, black, purple, and yellow. Have fun with the dark and grunge feel of a page.........enter the dark side, lol.
The ghost in the picture is my oldest son Morgan. He was having a blast with the sheet over his head making "boo" sounds trying to scare us a couple of days ago. As luck would have it i had my camera in my pocket and I was able to get this fun picture of him. Since then i have been mulling over how to create a layout this for this picture.
I love to create layers, it adds so much dimension to a page. Layers of papers, colors, embellishments, and textures gives so much depth and intrigue to a page........it keep you looking for more. In this page i was playing with the idea of the hard and the soft. The hard dark edge of the colors and Halloween, but the softness of the flowers, ribbon, and swirls make a great juxtaposition to each other. I also just love getting dirty playing with my distress inks, mists, and glitter.
I hope this inspires you to get dirty and to have fun playing a bit on the dark side of scrapbooking!
