Perfect Pumpkid - Colorful Creations

I'm getting in the Halloween spirit! I am really behind on scrapping my kids Halloween pictures. I think it is because I tend to only want to scrap them during the Halloween season and then I move onto Christmas pictures which I am also really behind on.
Over at Colorful Creations there is an awesome moodboard and sketch that was perfect to help me get some of my Halloween pictures scrapped. I had so much fun making this page. I started with spreading a thin layer of Gesso behind the picture area on the background paper. I then used some tissue paper and stuck it down to the Gesso and made sure it wasn't flat so it crinkled up some. I then poured a little Gesso on my Teflon mat and sprayed some Dylusions onto it to make an orange color. Spread that over the tissue paper with a old credit card to give some orange streaks. Then flicked some black color shine over that and also spread sightly with the credit card to give a few black streaks. Let dry. Then spread some Clear Rock Candy and let to dry to give the background a crackle look. Once that was dry I randomly sprayed some Tattered Angels Pumpkin Pie mist and let it run some down the page and so it spread out through the crackles. Added some rubons and some glass filler to the bottom  of the trees sprayed with black color shine for more depth. I even added a little bit of the spider wed stuff that was using to decorate the house with.
Here is the finished results.....

This is the sketch and moodboard I used for my inspiration.
