Do you love Halloween too?? I do, especially this one, the vintage way!

I made this spread in my Round Robin album again. Love that side of it, it's just large enough but not that large that you sometimes don't know how to fill the pages. Anyhow, I get some lovely printables each week from Ephemera's garden which I really really love, and this weer there were these gorgeous vintage tags, and I couldn't wait to get started with them. I printed them, glued them to cardstock and distressed them. I just love Halloween, but here in the Netherlands it's not really celebrated. These vintage tags have this wonderful atmosphere and I did my best to have that feeling in my spread. Quite happy on how it turned out. I started with a sheet of Prima paper for a background and added gesso on part of it, followed by some Viva Decor Crackle Paste through a stencil.
Then I sprayed some LSG Gossamer Gold spray on the crackle and it turned out gorgeous. Love love love the effect!
My friend Astrid gave me some gauze like stuff, very hard and sturdy but when wetted you can sort of pull it apart. So I coloured it with Distress Stains in browns and oranges.So this is how the spread turned out.
I added glass glitter in copper colour and some orange beads here and there with gel medium. The lace was coloured with black Dylusions. As a final touch I added some LSG Fuzzy Navel Peach drippage and splatters to gett some orange in there.

I hope you like my Halloween page. Have a great week, hugs Frea
