Disney's Halloween Time!

I decided that I needed to plan some Halloween Time Disney pages because I have so many Halloween Time pictures, so here are two I finished this month. I had a couple of problems, one being that some of the paper I ordered from this Making Memories Spooktacular Halloween line didn't come in, so I had to come up with an alternative for it. I have the techniques I used at the end of this post, but for now, here are the two layouts I came up with.

For this layout, I borrowed the tag design from Tim Holtz's Technique Challenge for October 2008.

I didn't want to use ribbon for the tag, so I dyed some cheesecloth using Ranger products. I also got inspiration from a funny layout by my friend Susan Stringfellow. She used google eyes in a circle on her layout about antique fake eyeballs. I loved it and wanted to used it on a Halloween layout, so here is my version of her google eye circle.

The second layout uses some of the new Halloween QuicKutz. The title and adorable curved swirly border and from QK. The rest of the embellishments are either stamped, or the ticket I created on my computer using Microsoft Word.

The medallions on both pages were made by adhering circles to colored paper clips and then tying some dyed cheese cloth to the tops of each.

Because part of my paper didn't come in, I had to adapt. So, I ran to JoAnn's and found this wedding paper. I got out my Ranger Distress Inks and inked the paper so that it looked dramatically different once I was finished.

And just like that, wedding paper becomes Halloween paper!

Then I needed some colored cheese cloth for my tags on both pages. I used Adirondack ColorWash to dye the white cheese cloth, then as I dried it with a heating tool, I spritzed it with Ranger Distress Re-inkers to add depth to the color and to make them look a little more uneven. I loved how they turned out.
