Happy Owl-O-Ween!


Welcome to my PaperWorksCo posting - you will be seeing me every Thursday during the month of October for a 'Free for All' post.

With Halloween just around the corner I had this idea of using this gorgeous Rachelle Anne Miller image within the context of a luminaria.  I found the luminaria tutorial over at SCS here and I altered some of the measurements to adapt it to this project.  The circles were cut out using nesties and the image is coloured with copics and cut out.  I adhered vellum behind the circle to mimic the moon.  I placed the image over the 'moon'.  I used the MS fence punch in orange cardstock and cut one for each of the four panels.  The remaining 3 panels have a teeny tiny bat which my mother painstakingly cut out for me!!

A side view of the luminaria.  I also created the 'roof' myself as I wanted to finish the luminaria off with a bird house effect.  It was also the perfect spot to place the sentiment!

Here's the finished luminaria in the dark with the battery-operated tealight candle placed inside - doesn't it look fabulous!  My boys were so excited to see this finished project so I know this will definitely be lighting up our dinner table until Halloween!

All papers and the RAM image are available from PaperWorksCo - be sure to pop over and check out Peggy's store.  I believe she also has copics on special right now at 15% off making them only CAN$5.50 - WOW! - what a bargain!!  Hurry on over ... those prices won't last for long!!

Well, thanks for stopping by today and paying me a visit.  I apologise for being a really slack blogger lately - it's difficult to spend time blog hopping and commenting when I have visitors here.  I am looking through my favourite blogs when I get a chance but please bear with me if I'm not as frequent a visitor as I should be!  Hopefully normal service will resume soon, hee hee!  With that said, I really do appreciate every comment that is left and thank you for your continued support and appreciation of my blog!  You guys are the best!
