Trick or Treat

     Posted by Lisa on October 14, 2018

Halloween is coming and I have a spooky treat for you today, and that’s no trick!

I can’t remember the last time I created a Halloween project, but I was inspired seeing lots of others making things that I decided to dig through my stash and see what I could find!

I found some Tim Holtz dies that I had forgotten about as I was exploring my stash looking for items to use.  The graveyard edge die and spiderweb are too fun not to use….can I use them on other projects I wonder.

img_2067Covered the shadow box with black gesso to start then treated the outside edges to some web like ‘ribbon’ that makes for amazing texture.  Now that I’ve used on non-halloween projects before!


To really bring out the texture I dry brushed some Finnabair Was in copper over top.  I have  to say these waxes are DREAMY!  Lori has a hard time keeping them in stock!


I filled the inside with this fun little skeleton and other spooky items.  The mini lights are just fantastic!


To top it off I added these fun mini bottles filled with some micro beads, some more bones & gravestones to finish it off!

I can’t wait to get out more of my Halloween decorations to go with this spooky little box!

Hope you find some treats of your own….and maybe a few tricks!
