Halloween Flip Book

Connie is hosting a Halloween Flip Book swap over at Paper Traders.  We made a twinchie (2" square) page for each section of the body: head, middle, feet.  For the middle, she asked us to put some kind of Halloween image instead of a torso.  I used vintage paper dolls for mine and added spooky features - blackened eyes, witch hats, etc.  For the center piece, I used the MyMemories digital scrapbooking software to collage a little Halloween image.

When Connie receives all the pages from the other participating artists, she will bind one page from each into a fun little flip book!

P.S.  There's still time to save $10 off your own copy of the MyMemories Suite -PLUS- get an extra $10 credit toward any purchase... that's a $20 savings!  Just use my promo code: STMMMS53179

Bleached Background Papers

Unfortunately, these did not scan very well but they're really quite pretty.  I made these background papers for another swap in our Paper Traders group.  We stamped images onto black cardstock using bleach, then added color back in using various inks, and touching it all off with some metallic stamping - a really easy and fun technique!  You'll have to test your paper before you get started as not all cardstocks will yield good results.  I tried several (some of which didn't bleach out at all) and finally bought a few pages of Bazzill paper, which worked well.

Game Day

It's time for another installment of the Paper Traders blog challenge!  The theme this time is "Game Day" and you can interpret that any way you want.  I used some baseball images layered over an actual San Diego Padres ticket trimmed down to ATC size.  There's plenty of time to get in on this one so come play with us!

Autumn is almost here

I have noticed that the leaves on some of the trees are starting to change here in Southern California.  The weather's still quite warm and I'm looking forward to some cooler days.  It's hard to believe that Autumn will be here soon... this year had going by so fast!  This is my third season banner, which we're making in our Paper Traders group.  I am swapping this one with Barbara Staradumsky and as soon as her banner gets here, I'm swapping it out for my summer one as I look forward to the changing season.
