Fall Banner by Melissa and Halloween Stage by Nancy

Hello Crafty Friends!  Today we two designers on the blog, both celebrating the upcoming Fall season.  First up is Melissa with our Fall Banner kit.  Several of our Team Members have been creating with this kit, and I'm amazed at how each one has been so different and unique.

Hi Melissa here for Gina's Chipboard Laser Designs.

I prepped all the chipboard with gesso.  On the banner I applied texture paste with a stencil. I put on mica powder over black acrylic paint, followed by a layer of Mod Podge Dimensional Glaze.  I painted on Twinkling H2Os in the blue purple color you see here.  To define the edges more I brushed on small amounts of liquid pearls in orange and green.

The spider webs are glossy accents over black acrylic paint.  I put on a little Twinkle H20 paint to hightlight the webs.  The ghost on the far right is glossy accents over the gesso.

Next up is Nancy with our Altered Art Stage decorated in a Halloween theme.

Hello Everyone, it's Nancy here sharing one of my favorite pieces from the Altered Art section of our store.  This is my second time working with the Stage.  This time around  I chose to create a Halloween project since it's my favorite theme to scrap this time of year.  

I began by painting my assembled stage in black, then I papered it with The Enchanted Collection by Authentique.  To decorate my stage I used various collage sheet images, and Gina's Designs chipboard shapes. 

Thanks for looking!
