Oh So Spooky

Good morning Steph here with my first post as a member of the Basically Bare Design Team.  I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to work with this amazing company and their awesome products.

I used Tilly’s Tabs mini album along with some Authentique and Art Anthology products. Since some of the elements from Authentique were larger, I chose to use the album vertically rather than horizontally.


The cover and the inside back cover were inked with Clearsnap Chalk Ink and then colored with touches of Art Anthology Velvet Dimensional Paint in Limeaid.  The mixing of the ink and paint added a layer of spookiness to the album.

Authentique’s Thrilling collection  was the perfect paper to use in this album. Their selection of stickers were perfect, heavy quality and all screamed Halloween fun.

The canvas pages in the album are great pages for experimenting with different techniques.  I added ink around the edges, then pulled some of the threads out.  The Athentique stickers adhered really well to the canvas.  I loved the silhouette of the child in the pumpkin patch on one of the papers so I cut her out and used her as an element on the canvas.

There is a lot of room to add photos in this album and the envelope is a great spot to add additional photos or some little mementos of trick or treating or even pumpkin picking with the little ones.

The acrylic page is a nice touch in this album.  By layering and adding all kinds of elements, you can easily adhere everything and not see the adhesive!


The final page of the album was pure fun, just adding more Limeaid Dimensional Paint and ink to create a creepy setting.  I love how the corrugated chipboard shows through the paint!

Thanks for stopping by today.
