Hallowe'en Pumpkins

I'm sharing another 2016 page with you today so the album appears to be back on track, at least for now. This one's from Hallowe'en when my daughter's Explorer Scout Unit tried their hands at pumpkin-carving.

Believe it or not, this page started out from a Stick It Down sketch. I had three photos, two landscape and a smaller square, and I initially rotated the sketch to suit them. As I went on, I dropped the smaller photo, added in more paper layers and rotated the background back again while keeping the photos at 90° to the original. Hopefully you can still see the sketch in my finished page.

I used old October Afternoon papers from several collections and fussy cut most of the embellishment pieces from a Witch Hazel paper. The frame on the photo highlights my daughter's Harry Potter pumpkin.

  3. Awesome evolution of the sketch. Looks like one long photo and I like how you highlighted the pumpkin with a frame. Thanks for creating with us at SID!

  4. I love seeing how people take our sketches and make them our own. I am the same way! Thanks for joining us Amanda! :)

  5. So I just posted a comment and my computer froze up so I hope this doesn't make a duplicate... I wanted to say I love how people take our sketches and make them their own. I am the same way and my finished project rarely looks like the sketch! Thanks for joining us Amanda! :)
