Happy October!!!!!!!!!! It is officially my favorite month of the year, and I am so happy it’s finally here. This also means that it is time for the 5th (wow!) installment of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I am gonna go out on a limb and say that if you’re here, you know just what I am writing about….but if you don’t (and live under a realllllly big rock!), go over to my sidebar and visit the first link under the Wicked Bloggers pic. That’s Terra, the co-creator of the fangtastic 31 Days of Halloween. She’ll explain everything there.
On to my project. Since it’s the 1st of the month, I have a new Desert Islands Crafter’s Challenge to share with you. As always, we have an Itinerary of 10 things, and you need to use at least 3 of them on your project. Here’s the Itinerary.
This time around, we are sponsored by The Octopode Factory. I used #’s 1, 2, 4, & 8.
I combined Terence and the Stack of Pumpkins for this 6×6 mini page. It’s basically a mix of a scrapbook page (with no pictures) and an art journal page that’s a bit scrappy.
I colored the images with colored pencil, and the background was done with watercolors and ink. For the background of the page itself, I used used a couple of splatter stamps from Smeared Ink’s Inky Dreams. I also used the fantastic Bats from Dreamweaver Stencils. And here is something really exciting…I am a Guest Designer with Dreamweaver again this month!!! I am so thrilled to be a part of their fantastic team in October!
So you have a lot of hopping to do, so get to it! Please be sure to visit the DICC Blog to see the rest f the team’s creations, and don’t forget about that super-huge list n my blog roll of the Wicked Bloggers! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
