Boo time with............


 Happy Halloween everyone, hope you're having a frightful time :D!

My one and only halloween project is a little zig zag fold book created using the Tim Holtz ATC and corners die for the book covers which I cut from chipboard and then again from lilac bazzil card. In side are the Spellettes (possibly haunting in a venue near you very soon), four of the witch Tilda's from various autumn/halloween collections. I cut watercolour paper slightly smaller than the ATC x four pages and then mountain and valley folded it. Everything is watercoloured and I've doodled some spider webs in the backgrounds and used some peg stamps for the words. There's lots of stickles on the webs and here and there on the Tilda's too.
 Close up and some of the sparkle is showing up.
 The front cover is decorated with DooHickey die cuts from the tea labels set and also the tree which have been watercoloured and the tree has some added doodling. The book holds together with a ribbon stuck down under the bazzil card on the front and then wound round the back to knot at the side.

I'm entering my book into the challenge at Magnolia-licious challenge blog where the theme this week is Halloween!
