Now onto my fun and spooky projects....I absolutely LOVE Halloween...and part of that is Howl-O-Scream (HOS) at Busch Gardens...I go EVERY year(I've only missed once and that was bc I was in Ohio during it...I went to King's Island's Halloween Event instead)... So I created a couple of frames to highlight some pictures from past years' trips. The first frame is from when I went with a couple of roommates I had at the time....This was circa 2002...Wow, it's been a long time...LOL
This was made using the paper from the stack that Jearise is giving away. K&Company Ghostly Greetings. I used ModPodge to attach it to a bare wood frame I purchased from Michael's. I then added Glossy Accents to the words "Halloween" and "Night" to make them stand out. I also used the Glossy Accents on the body of the ghost, the border of the bat, body of the spider and body of the skeleton. The skeleton is stamped with a Recollections cling stamp. He looks more like an alien after the Glossy Accent is put on. LOL...I used glitter glues(I don't own Stickles brand) by Studio G, Martha Stewart & aLa Mode for the spider's legs, bat's wings and outline of skeleton. The skeleton was stamped with Studio G ink and embossed with Stampendous Embossing powder.
This next frame is from when I went to HOS in '05 or '06 with my sister and her fiance. We had a lot of fun dressing up...well as much as you're allowed to dress up to go to the park...We looked kinda punk.
This frame was also made using paper from the same K&Company stack and the ModPodge technique. I stamped the Haunted House on Canson Drawing Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The stamp is from the same set of Recollections Halloween stamps as the skeleton from above. I then colored in the image using my PrismaColor pencils. and cut the image out. I attached it using my Xyron sticker maker(same way the skeleton was attached also). I then used my Studio G glitter glue to outline the haunted house. The bat & spider stickers are from Recollections.. I had planned on putting a title on the top left corner that said Howl-O-Scream, unfortunately both of my cricut machines are on the fritz so I could not do that...If I add it later I'll add pictures then.
Last but not least, I made a little 3-dimensional Haunted House to celebrate the theme of the hop. It has little ghosties, spiders, bats, witches and other critters peeking out of the windows and around corners.
This adorable little gem was made with my Sizzix and out of recycled materials. The "house" is actually a cardboard package from a tool. The windows are made from a recycled plastic package. The backing and the bat are made from cardstock scraps that I have from a bag of supplies I bought at a thrift store. All the little critters are punched out of scraps of paper. They are highlighted with various glitter glues and Glossy Accents.
Thank you so much for hopping along the Haunted House Blog hop...If you have made it this far, you are finished. I hope that you have enjoyed everyone's creations. We all have enjoyed creating for all of you.
