Trick or Treat Mixed Media Layout for The Little Blue House

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would share this spooky Trick or Treat layout I created for The Little Blue House using the Carta Bella Trick or Treat Collection.

To create my background page I used the Carta Bella Spider Web Stencil and some modeling paste to create some web designs onto a piece of Kraft cardstock. Once dry I sprayed some color mists around the areas I stenciled and then sprayed some water over the mists and held my paper up on its side to let the color mists and water run down the paper. I then dried and flicked some different colors of color mist onto the paper with a paint brush. I cut the kraft cardstock piece down about a 1/4 inch on all sides and adhered to an orange piece of cardstock. Adhering it to another piece of cardstock gives it a fun border and it also helps with any warping that the kraft cardstock may have from using the paste and sprays.

I removed the standard string from a mini canvas bag and replaced it with a fun colored braided ribbon. Then I grunged up the bag by rubbing some distress ink onto it.  I made some random folds and adhered them together so the bag had creases in it. From the Carta Bella Trick or Treat Papers I cut out some die cut shapes and sayings and adhered them to the bag so it looked like they were popping out of the bag.

For the wood veneer spider, I colored it with some black soot distress ink and then used some clear embossing powder over it to give it a shiny look.

Then I adhered the canvas bag to my background page and layered up some cut up pieces of the Carta Bella Trick or Treat collection and adhered them over the canvas bag with some 3D foam adhesives.
