Our First Spooky Halloween






I got some of DCWV Halloween stack and stickers recently at JoAnn's and have to say I love this paper - so I decided to make a picture frame


      I used plaid's apple barrel black and orange paints to paint the frame - trying to make it look like a spooky Halloween night! 










I also did a bit of stamping on the wood frame as you can see in one of the pictures here - used black embossing powder to outline the heart center of the frame and the white embossing powder for the tiny little ghosts - which later decide to emboss the inside.  I used Tim's distress stickles and just spread with my fingers all over the black and orange paint - you would need to look at the actual frame to see all the distressing - I also took a little bit of plaids apple barrel pure silver and distressed the edges of the frame.  I truly enjoyed making this frame and just loved the final result.

Here is a list of materials I used to make this frame:
I used Helmar 450 to glue the DCWV Halloween stock and stickers 
I used Helmar's zap dots 3D double sided adhesive rounds in black color
K&Company embellishments 
Michaels heart wood frame
The embossing powders used are from Stampendous - stardust transparent and midnight black opaque
Black small paper flowers
Tim Holtz embossing pens
Tim Holtz distress stickles













This is the final result!!!
