My October Swaps

 I have been taking more time to make art just for the fun of it. So worth my time! This month I wrangled some friends into a mask swap and an ATC swap.

Here is what I came up with for my mask.

I used MME Kraft patterned paper, and the swirls are cut from a piece of WeRMemoryKeepers paper.
 I love the softening of the traditional black, purple, and green Halloween colors. It's hard to tell in this picture, but the inky shading looks almost orange.

The eyelashes are Maya Road rub-ons, and the star is from a paper mache wand that I cut in half and covered with flocked paper.

This next mask was made by my friend Debbie. :) I LOVE what she came up with. The eyelashes are amazing, and that creepy spider is the perfect accent.

 I see she used bits of metal by Ten Seconds Studio. Very clever. 

These are her ATCs. They have amazing layers, and they're so wiry and dark.

Here is my set. My theme for myself was owls because I have a ton of them that I've been hoarding. :) I love 'em.

I rolled the little felt flower and topped it with a pearl. The branch is inked and covered with Martha Stewart beads.

This one was made from the top of a left-over tag. It has a cute fold that she will be able to tuck something into. I stamped a starry background, and layered the insides with batty patterned paper.

 I wanted this one to look creepy wispy spider web. I stamped a web over vellum and then covered it with a bit of glitter. The web is layered over a painted tree, and then I topped it all with brown scraps from my stash.

Hope you like. :) Happy Scrapping.
