Hi everyone. My title today sounds like a horror movie title, but instead it is this Trick or Treating page that I recently made.
The background is collage of various bits of tissue paper. Last year Hobby Lobby had packets of tissue paper (1 X 1 inch or 2.5x2.5 centimeter) squares you could buy for fall. (They might this year but I haven't looked them.)They worked out great here and you can see where I used them in the piece. I also did a bit of stamping and then collaged over and around that also. I added some bits of paper tape to my background also.
Then I added the party style trim, the cut out paper crow, the TH found relatives, the TH stamped haunted house and some cut out pumpkins from a collage sheet. The crow needed to say something, and he announced that it was time for those kids to Trick or Treat.
Sorry for the the crooked trim at the top. This page is in a BIG book that is one of my 2 Halloween journals. I like this particular journal because it is big enough to put 8 1/2 x 11 inch pages right into it. It doesn't, however, lay flat any more as I've been making some pages in it for several years. I really needed an extra hand to keep the top down when I went to photograph this, but having the kids in the middle be centered and straight I think is the most important.
And the milkweed were seeding today when I went for my walk.
I thought they looked pretty cool, and I image with the wind the seeds will be flying around soon enough. I hope most of them get to grow into new plants next year and help attract the Monarch butterflies.
That's all for me. Chores on the agenda for me today.It's that time to make the clothing change over and to pick up the lawn furniture on my screen porch.
Enjoy your weekend. And thanks for stopping by.
