Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween

So it begins! Happy October!!! I am so excited for this month...I just hope I can get all of my projects done on time! If you're new to the 31 Days of Halloween, this is a month long blog hop with lots of amazing crafters, sharing some of the coolest Halloween stuff you'll find out in Bloggy Land. I'm kicking off the month with a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. We are sponsored by Sweet Escapes.
 And this is the itinerary for the challenge. As always, you need to use at least 3 items.
I used #'s 1, 6, 7, and 8 to make a 6x6" Mini Page. It was tough to turn this pretty image into something creepy....but I do like a challenge. I turned her into a sort of evil Fall fairy.

I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. I used the Falling Leaves stencil from Dreamweaver with Copper Creative Medium from Imagine on the bottom. I also stamped the stars from Hero Arts' Dreams are Made set.

For the paint, I used Deco Art Media's Fluid Acrylics in Gold Interference. I love the shimmer it gave my background paper. I also used a brand new sentiment stamp from Stampendous, called Shadows. I used their Mushroom embossing powder for it. It's a great taupe-y color.

Please be sure to visit the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge Blog to see more using our newest itinerary, as well as the Wicked Bloggers that are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
