This is my second layout featuring the October kit from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts. I fussy cut part of the "Halloween in Wonderland" scene so I could use the frame as a shadow box. I pop-dotted the frame on a background of My Mind's Eye paper, making it easier to tuck photos and embellishments under the edge.
I used a few shades of glimmer mist on the background paper. Again, the white printing on the kraft paper acts as a resist, and really shows the design when misted. I added a stamped image in the corner (the Pink Paislee stamp set is included in the kit).
There is also a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in this month's kit. The colour is called "Dirty Martini" (gotta love the names, ha ha!). It's as fun as it sounds - it's a great autumn-y green with gold glitter and shimmer in it. I used it on both types of letters on my page. The large letters are a glossy cardstock, and the small letters are canvas-covered chipboard. The glimmer glam looks different on each, but gives them a coordinated look.
This piece of chipboard (from Dusty Attic) is left over from the large tree I used on the previous layout. The base of the tree would have been covered by a photo, so I cut it off and saved it to use like a photo stand. It has been painted with brown crackle paint, and then coated with more of the glimmer glam.
I tucked in a few 'cards' cut from one of the papers in the kit, and some embellishments, leaving just enough room for journaling.
