The big Harvest moon behind the house is a piece of watercolor paper cut with Nestabilities circle die, then colored with some Twinkling H2O's (picture does not show the awesome shimmer to the moon) and just a tiny bit of Adirondack reinker to deepen the shading along the bottom. It's super cool IRL. I colored the house with my Tombow and SU! markers, as usual. The frame was one I got at AC Moore, unfinished wood, simple, inexpensive which I painted with a toffee color base coat, applied a crackling medium and waited for it to dry. Then the fun starts watching the cracks appear when I painted the red topcoat.
I felt the trees from PTI's Boards & Beams were not 'creepy' enough for this project, so I used an Inque Boutique stamp instead.
I can't wait to hang this one up for Halloween!

My second project is this cute little treat bag. Again, using Cosmo Cricket's Haunted paper collection. I didn't have any Halloween treats to fill it up with yet, so I just stuffed some raffia in there with this cute little Jack fabric doll I made up earlier today. He was super easy. I've had the little cloth doll forms for a long time, from Skyblue Pink (scroll down to 'Munchkins'), from when I used to sew a lot of my own cloth dolls way back in the day. Well, I decided I needed to make a mini Jack Pumpkin doll, dug out my acrylic paints, some waxed thread and painted him up in about an hour and a half! Isn't he adorable!?

I'm going away for the weekend, later tonight. Me, Jimmy and our four kiddos are heading out to Heart Lake for a little bit of fishing and relaxation. I'm going to have to take a break from stamping... :-( So I won't be back till Sunday evening. Until then, everyone enjoy your weekend!
