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!
