Boo!!!! Halloween is in the air at Creative Embellishments, tooooo much fun. I had a blast using all the fun spooky, creepy, and scary chipboard that CE offers. It’s the best by far on the market today. Today I am sharing a spooky version of a pumpkin patch. The photo comes from one of my favorite Halloween movies “Trick ‘R Treat”. That little goblin is so funny and creepy in the movie, just had to scrap him for my collection.
I did lots of stamping and spraying on the background. Love all the colors together. I found that gorgeous Large Branch and painted it black.
On the left side of the photo I added one of the Thorn Branch Pair . I must have painted it with 3 different acrylic paints to get the look I wanted, and then I stamped over it using a black archive ink and background stamp. You could use any kind of stamp as long as you get good coverage.
I tucked it under the Spiky Gate, which I painted purple.
You can see one of the 6 pumpkins that comes in the Pumpkin Faces set. For those little guys I used various shades of orange, coral and bronze paint, with green on top. I also added some black cardstock behind them so that you could really see their adorable faces.
No spooky pumpkin patch would be complete without a Walking Skeleton to harvest the pumpkins. I added some Mixed Media Inx in White which I just dabbed on.
I tried to create the illusion that my guy was gathering up pumpkins for the little goblin in the picture. Here’s one more peek.
I hope you enjoyed wandering around my pumpkin patch today and that you will stop back for more inspiration from our talented DT group. Happy Haunting everyone!
Hi….would like to enter this in the October challenge….I was inspired by the Vintage/Victorian look of the photo and decided to alter a jewelry cabinet I’ve had around for awhile into a little scene….I used several CE chipboard pieces….Gates, Branches, Borders and the Chandelier……Oh my the Chandelier….used 3 pieces to make a 3D Chandelier by cutting them down the center and gluing them to a dowel rod….I used several Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and Ancestor photos…..link to the photos can be found here…. https://www.facebook.com/lexington.austria/media_set?set=a.2518982448113675&type=3
