Happy Halloween!!!

This is my final project for Kim over at ECLECTIC PAPERIE. I think it's quite fitting as the last project and it just happen to fall on "All Hallows' Eve". For this project I used some really wonderful products from the ECLECTIC PAPERIE on-line store. I'm going to list my supplies so that anyone who wants to know what to order from ECLECTIC PAPERIE, you can rush on over and get those awesome products. I started with the G45 "Black Policy Envelope" spiral book. This is such an awesome book to play with and all the pockets that are in it that you can fill, it's really great. I honestly can't believe it's only $6.49, most books like this one that are coming out anymore cost around $14.99. I of course had to have the Charcoal and Orange twine from THE TWINERY. Only $2.89 for each of those. I also used the "Adornments-Regal" from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line, that's where the metal wings came from. Also used was the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Art Parts "Pocket Watches". I love these!! For only $6.99 you get 3 sets. Since using them on this project I have since ordered two more, they are so much fun to add to basically any project. One of the newer stamp sets from Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz is "Artful Silhouettes". There is so much more you can do with these stamps aside from just having the silhouettes in the middle of the frame. As you can see from my project, I used one of the women silhouettes and since it was a Halloween project I extended her nose and chin. I pesonally think it turned out great. On another Halloween project I recently made I used one of the men silhouettes and I gave him fangs. If you don't already have this stamp set, I encourage you to get it. Not only is it fun but as I said there's so, so much you can do with it. The additional products I used for this book were: the Authentique "Enchanted" 6x6 Paper Pad (only $4.99 btw), Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints in Orange and Charcoal Black, the Inkssentials Black & White Enamel Accents (on sale right now at ECLECTIC PAPERIE for $2.99) and the Inkssentials Surfaces #8 Kraft Tags. There are also several additional photos of this Halloween book below this particular post, check them out as well. I hope you like the project and I'd love to hear from you if you do and you have the time to leave a comment. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween tonight. Don't forget to go over to to check out all the other new products she's gotten in recently, she has lots of great new items in. I spotted some new Basic Grey/Hero Arts stamps that I will have to get my hands on. .....and thanks for stopping by.
