Stamp TJ Vintage Halloween and Trick or Treat stamps onto orange tissue paper with Archival black ink - when dry, tear around the edges or cut out.
Trim Halloween cards prints and memorabilia from TJ Vintage Halloween PAPER Pack and the Vintage Halloween COLLAGE pack - I sometimes use deckle edge decorative scissors (they are still out there) to add interest to the overall design. I also try to find Halloween napkins that can be separated into thinner layers, torn and collaged - it fills in spaces between stamps and prints - the napkin I used here was cobwebs. Using a heavy bodied paper glue, adhere the larger prints around the pumpkins working paper into the crevices - dry. You might have to come back and make sure the edges of the larger prints are glued into place (have not popped up) and re-glue if needed - dry. Using Ranger Matte Medium and a 1/2" to 1" synthetic paint brush, begin add the layers together of stamped tissue and napkin images - dry overnight.
The second project used all of the same stamps, collage papers and stamped tissue - this time to decorate a plain chipboard album cover and accompanying pages. What a fun little scrapbook for kids in costumes through the years or a special party - have fun with this one!
And here is a peek at the inside pages - many have TJ prints as accents:
I will be featuring Jill's Vintage Santa Clause, Christmas and 12 Days stamp sets and collage paper packs in a month or so, stay tuned. Bye for now, thanks for coming by! Kay
