For my project today I ended up doing a mini Halloween hanging. My intention was to work with the Labels Seven Nestaboards and show how simple it would be to make a pyramid/3D image with the Nestaboards (no more pop up dots). However, much to my dismay . . . in my Want2Scrap stash, I didn’t have Labels Seven but I did have Labels Twenty. This caused me to change my mind because I couldn’t find an image that would fit and that I wanted to work with. This also resulted in me making a Halloween project instead of something else . . . . But it does look cute hanging in my sitting room.
I used the largest of the Nestaboards and covered it with orange paper from Fancy Pants Oct 31. The swirl flourishes under the flowers and sentiment, were white pearl Finesse Swirls from Want2Scrap. I didn’t have black in this swirl, so I decided to color them with Black Alcohol Ink. I then cut the swirl in half (since it’s long) and placed them from the left going to the right side.
The flowers were die cut from a different sheet of designer paper from the Oct 31 pad with LF-005 Grand Peony Creations. The leafs were die cut from GrungePaper with S4-328 Foliage and then panted Crush Olive. All the sponging on this project was done with one of the new Ranger Seasonal Distress Inks, Gathered Twigs. The back of the flowers were sponged with Seedless Preserves.
The sentiment was a small section of another sheet of the Oct 31 paper that I trimmed out. It just happened to come very close to matching Labels Four, so I die cut and piece of printers chipboard and another section of paper from the Oct 31 pad. I used that layer as a packing for the sentiment.
I did place a small piece of waxed twine at the top to use as a hanger.
I’ll be keeping this piece and store it along with all my other Halloween decorations.
That’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!
