Trick or Treat Mixed Media Layout
by Nadine Carlier
1. Using a stencil and some modeling paste create some designs onto a piece of Kraft cardstock. Once dry spray some color mists around the areas you used the stencil and spray some water holding your paper up on its side to let the color mists and water run down the paper. Dry and then flick some different colors of color mist onto the paper with a paint brush. Cut the kraft cardstock piece down about a 1/4 inch on all sides and adhere to another piece of cardstock. This will also help with any warping that the kraft cardstock may have from the using the paste and sprays.

2. Remove the string from the mini canvas bag and replace with a fun colored ribbon of your choice. Grunge it up by rubbing some distress ink on it make some random folds and adhere it so the bag has creases in it. Cut up some fun papers or die cuts and adhere to the bag so it looks like they are popping out of the bag.  For the spider, I colored it with some black soot distress ink and then used some clear embossing powder over it to give it a shiny look.
3. Adhere the canvas bag to your page and layer up some random pieces of scrap papers and die cuts and adhere over the canvas bag with som 3D foam adhesives and you are done.
Boo, Eek Layout by Valerie Bishop

 I layered a piece of 10" x 10" white cardstock on top of the "Pumpkin" piece of Crate Paper which acted as a frame for my layout. I used a couple of photobooth pictures that I took with my younger daughter last year and layered several pieces of different "After Dark" Crate Paper pieces under each photo creating a mini group of similar yet different groupings for each one. I used a tag on one side of each grouping cut from the tag piece of Crate Paper
 I punched a hole in the top of each tag and threaded a piece of the smaller ribbon through each one. I used one of the tags to include my journaling which I typed using my antique typewriter. After choosing where I wanted each grouping I found and resized a bat border from the Silhouette America store and cut it from a piece of glitter paper  and layered it across the middle of my layout. I then sprinkled some spray mists in the white spaces and layered my titles using the glitter Halloween Thickers. I also layered on some of the glitter Halloween shapes from the Thickers set around my layout to give it more dimension and interest.
