Trick or Treat using Echo Park Paper Hocus Pocus by Kerryn Fry

Good morning AAS Fans!
Today I have created a page using the awesome collection,
Echo Park Paper Hocus Pocus
We have always enjoyed celebrating Halloween in the past, 
but now that Mr 14 is getting older, he is not so keen!
Lucky for me, I still have plenty of photos from previous years to scrap.

The page was started with the smooth side of the Bazzill White Cardstock.
Using my messy mat and some water, I have added Distress Oxides in 
Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade and Hickory Smoke to the cardstock in layers.
Making sure to dry with a heat gun between each colour.
I have stencilled the cobweb with a Tim Holtz Layered Stencil and the Hickory Smoke Oxide
and the edges of the cardstock have been covered with Black Soot Distress Oxide
There was plenty of fussy cutting that followed for different elements.
Using Halloween Hats and the reverse of the 3x4 Journaling card papers,
I have cut out little skeletons and ghost to spread across the page.
All elements were mounted on foam tape to create different layers.
I have used the 2 Crafty Eerie Tree to frame the left side of the photo
and be the support for the Tombstone 
I have hand cut the 'Trick or Treat' title from the 4x4 Journaling sheet.
With a knife, I have cut out sections of the web for a better effect
and then mounted it on black cardstock to give it a bit more pop.

The 2 Crafty chipboard was fun to decorate.
Using a makeup sponge, I have added colours to the Spooky Owl piece,
the ghost, tombstone and bat.
I used a white Sharpie pen to add the letters eyes to the chipboard.
Once the chipboard was dry, the moon on the Spooky Owl got a little Stickles
and the owl and little bat got a coat of Glossy Accents.
The Sticker Sheet added the finishing touches.

I think that's everything.
Thank you for visiting us today
Happy Creating and please check back on Monday for 
Fiona's next project.
