Happy Halloween Scrappers!!! It’s one of my favourite days of the year and I am thrilled to post today. I found so many awesome goodies in the galleries that I had so much trouble narrowing it down to just 6 (but I chose 7 since it’s a special day!!) I’ve been up since 6 am because I had to do my daughter’s makeup for school and I have been searching the galleries since then to find my picks. I had better post soon because I need to go and get things ready for trick or treaters tonight. I hope you all have a very safe and happy Halloween!!! Here are my picks:
I love this layout by Biancka. It’s a Halloween layout, yet it doesn’t scream Halloween in your face. I love the spider paper (and I am NOT a huge spider fan lol) The pattern is so subtle and goes so well with the elements. The photo is just super cute and the cut outs really give an interesting texture to the page. I love the diagonal feel to the design too.
What a fabulous layout by CrazyT! I am a big fan of her work. She takes simple and makes it look effortless. It’s so difficult to use minimal elements and make it look like the whole page is covered in them and Tracy does an amazing job each and every time. I just love the word art she used here and the photos and the make up are AMAZEBALLS!!! The messy background is perfect and the burlap blended into the papers is so well done. I just love everything about this page.
Another amazing scrapper is this lady: Iowan. Her work inspires me so much and I am so happy to be able to feature her layout on my post. This is just outstanding. The blending, the colours, the amazing photos. She does it all brilliantly every single time. I love the art journal aspect of this layout, yet it still feels like a designed page. The paint and the word art are the perfect accompaniment to the whole layout. Just awesome.
I was blown away by the textures in this next layout by LynnPremo. The leaves embedded into the white paint are so interesting and give this page such depth. I love the way she used the frame here and the extraction is great. The dark black background is perfect here because it pops the make up on the couple and also gives the title that extra umph that made me look at this one twice. Such a simple layout, but packed with a big punch of super!
The use of the word art here in this layout by mcurtt, is just fantastic. I think she nailed what word art in kits are made for. The scribbles and the title are so well placed and they draw your eye to that great photo. I love the red paint splat under the font and the amazing wordart that I mentioned..did I mention the word art?? — just makes for an eye-catching and terrific design.
While not traditional Halloween colours, this layout by Thimbleberrie left me with my jaw on the floor. This is art. This is something I’d hang on my wall at Halloween. I love the graphic novel look of this and I love the paint in the web to enhance that creepy spider (did I mention I hate spiders?). The skeleton dude on the bike is so creepy and I adore how she used the stitches to mimic a bike path. I’m in awe of this layout….truly. It’s just perfect.
Lastly, I usually am drawn to artsy layouts but in a traditional style, but this layout is such a well done piece, I couldn’t pass it by. Zanthia has drawn me into this story and has made me wonder what is going on here. The blending is seamless and the little bats are so well placed. I love all the little details in the graveyard and it took me forever to stop staring at it and just get on with saving it for the post. Every time I look at this layout, I see something new and that’s what makes it so special. Just outstanding.
So, those are my picks for Halloween day 2016. I sure have enjoyed my time here this month and I hope to be back to post more in November. Remember to click on the highlighted names to leave these amazing artists some love. Until next time, keep on scrapping!!!
