Boo (Robin's Nest DT)

I love the light fun childish side of Halloween, not the gory scary side.  I think my little Eloise looks adorable in her costume don't you.  Kathleen here to share a fun whimsical layout filled with incredible Halloween  Robin's Nest products.

I started out by gathering items that would fit my layout idea.  I would later come back with more items I found in my stash to complete the look.

I love the stripes on this paper(Robin's Nest-Orange Bones Cardstock) it matches Eloise's leggings!   This fun flair splash mask was applied around the paper to give flow and interest.  I came back with another mask, ledger style, and used only the top portion of it to create a frame for the layout.
 Next I started spritz the masked areas with black and mustard paints.  Then I splashed the areas with orange water colors, black paint, and white gesso.  Stamped around the area with ghosts and witches and sayings.  Now to build.  The chipboard was sprayed with Art Anthology-Raider.  The broom and cauldron were embossed with Tim Holtz-Distress embossing powder, Black Soot and the cobwebs with Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder, Silver Moon Turquoise.

I used an old Graphic 45 packaging in the shape of a large tag as my template to cut a tag from Robin's Nest-Pumpkins Glitter Cardstock. Now to build my paper stack under the picture to frame it.  I torn a sheet of dictionary paper to add interest in the stack.  Next I tucked my cob webs around the page and began to add more color with mists and water colors.  Then on to some fun ghost and witch stamps.
Finally I added my embellishments and with wisps of cheese clothe tucked here and there.  Check out Robin's Nest-Bats Glitter Chipboard and Robin's Nest-Pumpkin Glitter Chipboard .  They sparkle and glitter in person.  There are quite a few in each package too!
The Robin's Nest Friendly little Friend is the perfect add on to any Halloween layout.  Just look how cute it is!
