I used two different paper lines for this page. I used My Mind's Eye Haunted Collection (LOVE THIS), and I used Martha Stewart's Halloween Vampire collection. These collections go so well together. I really love that old, tea-dyed look to the paper. It also helped that the top line to the bottom page from MS says "Halloween Greetings...you're invited to a Vampire Ball". Another thing I found was that Martha had this really great green paper in the stack with a polka-dotted back-side. Green??? For Halloween??? Awesome! That lovely diamond patterned paper is flocked and it is soooooooo pretty. A scrapper that I admire, Tina (click here for her blog) is just a goddess when it comes to layers and layers of paper. I keep trying to pull this off and stalk her work so that I can learn it. I'm getting better, but I still have a long way to go. I practiced that layering effect with this page. I think I still have another 4 or 5 sheets of paper to add to this before I really get the effect she has on her pages, but I'm taking baby steps! LOL
I had some gorgeous purple Prima flowers in my stash and one purple spider mum that I made and had sitting in my stash as well. I really love how all of these colors work so well together. I had to add some bling and pulled out some prima flourishes.
I really enjoyed using some not-so-traditional colors on this page. I hope this inspires you to do the same. Happy Halloween and stay posted because I created an altered box that I will be revealing on 10/31. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
