I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...Day 1


This year I thought I would make a Halloween scrapbook, hoping to share a number of pages with you over the month...

This is the next page:

The first layer is a paper from Oddball Art's Pick your poison
I then added the image coloured with markers and cut out.

This is Poison Petunias from Oddball Art CCC73 - this Friday's freebie.

I love receiving the Friday Freebie from Oddball Art Stamps
These are available when you subscribe to the Oddball Newsletter.

Next I added the tags:

The technique on this first tag is Distress Oxide - Luminous Layers (one of the techniques we practised at Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry LIVE two years ago.


  1. Rub Distress Oxide colours on craft sheet.
  2. Mist with water to create colour droplets.
  3. Swipe gloss cardstock through inks and lift.
  4. Dry with heat tool.
  5. Tap into remaining ink on craft mat and dry between each layer.
  6. Apply micro glaze through stencil using ink blending tool to wear away Oxide layer.
  7. Wipe off excess glaze with paper towel.

I then added the sentiment, diecut to a tag shape, distressed with Seedless Preserves distress ink and with a scrap of ribbon. 

This time I went to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet for my quote. Friar Lawrence is telling Romeo about the flower having both poisonous and medicinal powers.
