Well it's Halloween today in half of the world so I couldn't resist a little bit of Halloween scrapping!
Australia is relatively new to the idea of trick or treating. We never celebrated Halloween as children but my children, with the international exposure from television and the internet, dabbled in the Halloween journey about half way through their childhood.
I distinctly remember the one year they asked to "DO" Halloween. We quickly threw together some costumes from bits and pieces we already had. Kaitlytn dressed up as Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter, her hero at the time (bless his dear soul) and Cameron was a pirate (easy option LOL).
All the children in the street joined in and they had an amazing time going from door to door trick or treating just up and down our street. My children didn't really get into it again after that but I, for some unknown reason, each year I always kept lollies at the door just in case I get some visitors.
It was 2005 WOW almost 10 years ago. Most of these children are teenagers or, like my two, adults! What wonderful memories.
Any way, enough reminiscing. Here is the tag I made.
And here is a little video of the background being created.
I absolutely love Daniel Torrente's Designs. This one "Three in a Round" would have to be my favourite by far. But I do like the "Daniel's Hearts" that I used on the background too.
The heat emboss resist technique is a never fail one! it never fails to excite me! This time I've used Beck BT's Tinby Designs Metallic Melts for the emboss resist. They are so chunky and tough, they'll resist anything I put on them!
And their broken, rustic effect is perfect for my Halloween Tag! I've also used some 2Crafty Chipboard "Chicken Wire" that I painted white and slotted in under my main feature on the tag.
Just a little bit of fun and a great way to celebrate a little bit of Halloween. next year I want to make my own door hanging. We'll see how motivated I get LOL!
Have a safe, fun and happy Halloween xx
