“Time for Halloween already,” you ask? ”When is it not time for Halloween,” I reply.
For that matter, when is it not time for Disney World? That’s right. Never. In fact, we are in our countdown to this year’s Disney Halloween trip – only 89 days to go!
My project today is a layout that I made for the Basically Bare Design Blog, and it’s just dripping with Halloween-y Disney goodness. Let’s check it out, shall we?
I started with some great new papers from DCWV. I painted some Basically Bare Fanciful Frames with Art Anthology paints and attached my photos to the backs of them. I also used some Basically Bare Celestial Shapes to scatter around on the layout. The acrylic stars were painted once with a thin coat of Art Anthology Sorbet in Frost (just on one side) and allowed to dry. Then, I added a thin second layer of Sorbet and used it to adhere the stars, paint side down, to the page. This attached them without me having to use some kind of adhesive that would have clouded up the transparent bits of the stars. And, since the unpainted side is up, I don’t have to worry about any of the paint flaking off or getting scratched.
On the black frame, I painted a solid layer of Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and let it dry. I added a thin, uneven coat of Sorbet in Trolley Grey over that for a little of an aged effect. On the purple frame, I started with a coat of Art Anthology Velvet paint in Mardi Gras. After that dried, I added some accents using Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal in Amethyst. The Dimensional Crystal dries to a really great shine and doesn’t settle or lose any of its height, which is exactly what I love about it!
I added a pearl border and some mini label stickers on the photos, and the layout was done. Super easy! And since the Art Anthology paints all dry really quickly, I was able to do this whole layout, start to finish, in only an hour or so. That makes it perfect for us time-deficient scrappers.
Thanks so much for stopping by! There will certainly be lots more Halloween and Disney to come!
