Jo from Let’s Art Journal created her spooky art journal page using a TCW Specimens StencilStampendous Embossing Enamel and Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints for the background. Her tag adornments are made using Tim Holtz Sizzix Tag Framelits, stamps from both Finnabair and Tim Holtz, some Black Stampendous Embossing Powder, a couple of Tim Holtz Countdown Brads and some Quote Chips .

Andrea had a bat-tastic time making this trio of tags. She used Reverse Confetti’s Square Window Tag die, Tim Holtz’s Bat Crazy die, and sentiments from Inky Antics’ Happy Haunting stamp set.

Anna-Karin was inspired by a pair of curtains to make a wall-hanging of a spooky window. On the shelf in front of the window, lots of interesting details are placed. Most were die cut with Tim Holtz’s Regions Beyond set, and the curtains and wall piece are in his Halloween Layers and Baseboard Frames set.

Barbara was inspired by the novel The Portrait of Dorian Gray to realize her project. She used Tim Holtz’s Etcetera TombstoneTim Holtz Stampers Anonymous CadaverousTim Holtz Idea ology Baseboard framesTim Holtz Ranger Ink Grit paste.

Cheiron created a spooky Vignette Tray. She lined the tray with Halloween Collage paper and added Halloween Paper Dolls and Halloween Layers and Baseboard Frames. She added a bunch of spooky Idea-ology including Creepy Eyes, a crypt hand and headstone from the Cryptic pack and a bottle of Wishbones.

Emma couldn’t resist using Tim Holtz’s Etcetera Tombstone and Bat Web Trims and used plenty of Tim’s idea-ology products including Paper Dolls, Skull Fragments and Quote Chips to add mystery and darkness to her spooky project.

Lols decorated an Etcetera Tag using a Tim Holtz Haunted House Cling Stamp Set, Distress Oxide Inks and Frightful Things and Swirling Stars Die Sets

Macarena transformed the dragon from Tim Holtz STAMPtember set into a very cute colorful critter, using several Ranger Dylusions Ink Sprays.

Maura made a spooky Halloween tag using Andrea Ockey Parr/Inky Antics Happy Haunting and Circles and Frames stamp sets along with Visible Image’s Skull Shadow stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp 2019 Monster Reunion on the background and Idea-Ology Halloween Quote Chips for sentiments. 

Sandra made a dimensional Halloween card using Cogs and Wings and Mechanica Moulds along with Art Stones and Droplets. Orange is such a pretty Halloween color and she chose Infusions Orange County and Rusty car for her card. 

Zoey had so much fun playing with Pentart M2 Metal Flakes to add some shine to this very dark tag! She used a bunch of Distress Paint to add color and to make the background she used her favorite Tim Holtz Idea-ology TYPOGRAPHY Collage Paper and a mix from Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book!

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
