Hello, this is Eva and today I have a fun album to share with you that one can add all their favorite Halloween memories.

My album is by Basically Bare chipboard album.  I used our Thrilling Collection, I used Art Anthologies paints along with The Crafter's Worskhop stencil.

So let me show you how I created the cover of this album.  I first covered the album with two of the Thrilling Collection papers, than I laid the stencil on top of it and using my fingers I painted on the Art Anthology Sorbet and Velvet Dimensional paints.

When I finished, I lifted my stencil and dried the pain using my heat gun.  These paints are super fun and dry quick as well.  Once I did that, I tied a black twill May Arts Ribbon along with an orange twine around the front cover.

Using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies I cut a black label, which I layered my sentiment sticker.

Than I started adding more stickers and the focal point was cut out from the Mystic paper.  I adore this paper with all the pretty vintage Halloween images.  I added quite a bit of Petaloo flowers on my album and finally I decided to spray part of my album with Art Anthology's Colorations - Color Spray in Raider color.

You can see the spray a little closer on this photo.  It was a perfect addition to the halloween album.

 Well, here is another look of the finished album cover.

Sure hope you like this little album cover and run with the idea of creating a halloween album with all the pictures you might have or about to take this year.

When I received the product for this swap and saw the "Mayan Gold" Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology, I knew that I wanted to create a full moon as a backdrop for a Halloween collage.  At first I didn't know how well or how much the paint would cover the Thrilling paper, but it worked out even better than I had hoped!

 To begin, I started with a 10X10 canvas frame.  Using the Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology, I painted the sides and about a 1" perimeter on the front of the canvas.  The paint
provides great coverage and has a hint of sparkle too it.

For the moon, I cut a 7.5" circle from the Antidote patterned paper and then painted on one layer of Mayan Road Dimensional Paint.  After the piece was completely dry, I adhered it to the same size chipboard and then machine-stitched around the perimeter.  Next, I gave a light spray to the moon using the Raider Colorations Spray.  Before attaching to the prepared canvas, I glued on a trim of golden yellow pom pom trim by May Arts.  

After adding the layers of cut-out papers and the cute Halloween motif, I attached a "happy" banner using Basically Bare's chipboard banners that I covered in Frenzy paper.  The sticker letters are also from the Thrilling Collection. 

To the top, the sticker alone just wasn't enough so I added one of the black chipboard pieces from Basically Bare's Jailer Keys set.  A little turquoise straw picks up the blue in the postcard picture and a nice ribbon bow completes the collage.
