Halloween Fun with Scraps of Darkness "Dance Macabre" October Kit

Halloween is almost here!!  It is truly one of my favorite holidays...what am I saying???  I love them all.  But, this one is especially fun for the grandbabies and I really get into their fantasies!  Today I'm sharing a lo of my sweet grandson, Chase.  He is carving pumpkins with his Daddy, Tim, my fabulous son-in-law.  These photos were taken 2 years ago, hard to believe that he was that little. 

It's been raining here in Anchorage like crazy with some really dark skies, so I may have manipulated the color toooo much, but you get the gist of the lo.

I started with the background paper using the Authentique "Moonlit" paper included in the Coordinating Paper add on.  Just love the texture of this cardstock!!  I misted the bottom of the paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang's "Jazzy Jivin Purple" mist which is included in the Main Kit.  I misted the top with Lindy's "Mango Mania" which I got in a previous kit.  Then I used one of the new stencils by Gabrielle Pollacco across the top of the lo and Prima's Chalk Fluid in black.  I think it gave a really creepy vibe.......I then stamped the background and splattered black ink. 

We got this really cool chipboard from Blue Fern in the Elements Add On, which I covered in the Black Glass Glitter also included in the Elements Add On. 

I got these adorable cat chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments and jut knew they would be adorable on this lo.  I used the Stampendous "Aged Black Embossing Enamel" that came in the Color Add On.  Just love how it changes when heated. 

In the Pattern Paper Add On is a really cool G45 paper with owls all over it.  I fussy cut one of the owls, applied the black glitter with gel medium, and added two jewels for the eyes.

I double matted my photos and determined where I wanted them to go on the layout.  Before gluing them down I cut pieces of cheesecloth to go under the photos.  I think it gives a little wispy, creepy feel.  Once I got the photos and chipboard in place, I started having fun with the embellishments.  I used these adorable orange and black flowers from the Floral Add On.  I sprinkled some microbeads and glitter on them to get some shine.  Just love how they turned out. 

I used another little chipboard piece from the G45 "Rare Oddities" collection that was included in the Main Kit.  Then I sprinkled the black and some orange glitter in various places around the lo and then added a few little jewels for more bling.  C'est Fini!!
