I will be sharing my second day's Halloween make on Leigh's page 2....


Don't forget to keep watching and commenting for the chance to win spot prizes and some of my makes!

I mentioned my first SPOT PRIZE yesterday - email the answer to susanrenshaw0404@gmail.com before midnight October 5th -

What did I make as my main 31DOH project last year?


So for Day 2 I decided to use some of Leigh's new Halloween images

I printed these three images several times in a size small enough to fit an ATC on green and beige card. I added a little colour with markers and cut them out. 
These then became the main feature of a pocket letter:

Each of the 9 ATCs started with a rectangle of black card, followed by a slightly smaller rectangle of a background I had made using acrylics and alcohol.

These are the ATC's before I placed them in the folder:

It is so difficult photographing Pocket Letters when they are placed in their plastic!!

Happy Hopping!
