Hello everyone and Happy Halloween! I'm here today with my last guest post for the OA blog. I'm sharing a layout I created using a few photos of my daughter dressed up in her Halloween costume and a small decorative Halloween banner that I created using the Public Library and Apple Cider collections.
I used a Photoshop template I had on my computer and placed three photos on one 4x6 sized piece of photo paper. If you don't have Photoshop or Photoshop templates, you could easily re-create this look using a circle punch or by cutting your photos out in circles (or any other shape you want!).
I added some punched stars directly onto the 4x6 photo and around my page using patterned paper from the Apple Cider collection. I also used the negative paper from the punched stars on my layout and flipped the patterned paper over to the opposite side for some color contrast.
I journaled on a small label sticker and placed it underneath the "Trick Or Treat" square. I finished my page off with a few brown mist splatters and a litte machine stitching for a homespun feel.
Next, I have a small decorative Halloween banner that I created using the Public Library and Apple Cider collections.
I didn't decorate for Halloween this year, but I wanted to create a small banner I could hang on my mantel shelf in our living room. I adore the 12x12 sheet of alpha stickers from the Public Library collection, so I used them to spell out the word "spooky" for my banner.
I layered the alpha stickers on top of a few banners and pennants I cut out from some Apple Cider patterned paper.
I embellished some of the letters with Pop Drops and my Tiny Attacher staples and after I was done embellishing, I punched tiny holes in the pennants and strung them up on some baker's twine I had on hand.
It's small, but the banner is the perfect addition to my mantel shelf!
I want to thank all of you for following me this month here on the OA blog and for all of your kind words and comments on my posts. It's been a true pleasure and I have really enjoyed working with October Afternoon's amazing products and sharing them with you! I hope I've given you a little inspiration and some creative ideas that you can incorporate into your own projects and layouts.
Thanks for stopping by and have a very happy Halloween!
