I remember making this fun forest background as part of a make and take at the anniversary party of my favorite papercrafting store, Paper Anthology: proud stockist of Eyelet Outlet bling and brads... including bats! It was part of an amazingly lovely Christmas card design, but to me it also looked a bit haunted; so I asked if I could make a second one to save for Halloween. To finish it off in suitably spooky fashion, I added a super-shimmery moon made by combining Ken Oliver Crafts' Watercolor Pigment Powder (in Gamboge) with Pearl Liquid Sparkle. I attached the adorable Bat Brads and made them more mysterious by letting them peek out from behind some punched clouds.
Happy Haunting to everyone celebrating Halloween!
PS: This year's Paper Anthology anniversary party takes place this coming weekend, November 3rd and 4th. There will be FOUR free make-and-takes, food, selected savings throughout the store, a very cool "thank you" gift and of course the legendary Spinning Wheel of Prizes. If you're anywhere near Kenvil (Morris County) NJ, I hope you'll stop by and say hi! Full details on the website!
