Halloween Tray

Don't forget to double click to see the pictures really large! Halloween just seems to be in the air! I think after the intensely hot summer we are STILL having, we're all longing for come cool breezes and fall colors. This very special project is done on a 7 Gypsies Printer's Tray. These come in several formations. This one is sized for ATC's and it made a perfect Halloween themed tray. I'm posting several pictures and there are so many elements used. If you have questions, please let me know and I'll be glad to help. I used only two stamps! I used several MS border punches, lots of Tim Holtz hardware, lots of bling, an old domino, a large spider from the jewelry section at JoAnn's, prima flowers, etc. Notice the tiny little pumpkin tea pot in the extreme upper right corner! In several spots I punched 4 or 5 of one punch and layered them for dimension. Papers run the gamut from old SU halloween papers, new MS papers, and some special single halloween sheets I had purchased and was holding for years for just the right project. I had so much fun doing this that I am going to do another in the new Steampunk Debutante papers by Graphics 45. I hope this will inspire you to try a project yourself. Enjoy!

Love it! One question...did you permanently adhere the ATCs to the tray? Enjoy this season and many more years to come.
