Burlap Canvas and Card by Dianna and a Layout by Lynne

Hello Crafty Friends!  Today we have two designers on the blog.  First up is Dianna with two projects representing Halloween as well as our October cross promotional with Craftsupplies1.

Hi Everyone, Dianna here with a cross-promotion project with Gina's Designs and Craftsupplies1.

I have two pieces in burlap,  the first is a small canvas from Hobby Lobby. I began by distressing the burlap with brown and black ink.  The Gina's Designs witches hat, feet and cauldron (coming sonn)were primed with white gesso and acrylic black paint on the witches hat.  Copic Markers, 100-black, N4-Neutral Gray, N6-Neutral Gray, N4-Neutral Gray was used on the cauldron. I started with the dark color first and then layered on the lighter grays to create the rounded look on the cauldron.  Copic Markers were used on the feet of the cauldron to create the monster feet and the hat band, YG23-New Leaf, YG13- Chartreuse, YG63-Pea Green. Black Copic was used on the witches boots and V09-Violet and YG13-Chartreuse was used on the witches tights. The Spiderweb was painted with black gesso. Stickels were dobbed on the cauldron feet, witches boots,  hat band and spiderweb. 

Sizzix leaves were cut out of extra neon green paper.  Craftsupplies1 acrylic orange and brown flowers stems were inked with a light green.  The stems were curled around a small dowel to create a vine effect.  The flowers were placed around the green leaves.  Boo and orange dotted ribbon (from Michaels) was used on the side.  Three pumpkins from Kitty's Scrap Post O'Halloween paper collection was used next to the witches hat.  The pumpkins were spritzed with Tattered Angels, Shimmer Gold.  Lastly, a Craftsupplies1 Antique gold owl was glued on the spiderweb.

The Halloween Card

Burlap Paper was used on a Hobby Lobby card stock.  Brown Ink was used to distress the card.  The large pumpkin and moon was from Kitty's Scrap Post O'Halloween and was spritzed with Tattered Angels Gold.  Leaves were cut from Tim Holtz Autumn Gathering and spritzed with gold.  EK pumkin border punch was used on orange card stock.  Gina's Designs witch and cat was "painted" with black glitter fingernail polish.  EK punch was used to create the Spooktacular embellishment.

Next up today is Lynne with a gorgeous 12 x 12 scrapbook layout to share.

I created this layout as a tribute to our beloved tabby cat, Chester,
who went missing in the middle of August when a door was accidentally left open in the night. We still hope he'll show up one day,(we once had a calico cat come home after two months)
but we know there's a good chance we won't see our sweet boy again.

The chipboard phrase was perfect for my title, and all I did was paint it with acrylic paint to match the paper. I love how easy it is to make pieces like this coordinate with any project!

The bridge signifies the possibility the Chester has crossed the Rainbow Bridge on his way to Heaven...I wanted to give it a  pearly, dreamy feel so I painted it with pearlized acrylic paint then added a touch of white mist. I layered the pieces with dimensional tape and glue dots.
