Spooky Fun Layout by Ashley Neu

Monday, September 25, 2023

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Ashley Neu back to share another layout, this time using Paige’s Garden Shoppe collection to create a Halloween layout! One of my favorite things about Paige’s collections is their versatility. You can create so many layouts with different themes from the same collection! I used this fall collection because of the colors. I thought they would work perfectly to create a colorful Halloween layout. I also used Paige’s Spiderweb from the 13 Halloween Cut Files.
To get started, I shrunk down the Spiderweb in Silhouette Studio and duplicated it so that I had 5 spiderwebs. I did vary the sizes slightly so that they weren’t all the exact same. After cutting the spiderwebs from black cardstock, I grabbed Paper 9 and backed random sections in each spiderweb. I wanted each spiderweb to have its own color so that I could use tone-on-tone embellishing and add some mixed media. After backing the cut files, I moved onto creating the background. I grabbed a piece of white cardstock and my watercolors to start the process. Under each spiderweb, I did the smooshing technique where I put a small amount of watercolor on a piece of plastic and then I “smooshed” it onto the white cardstock. I glued each spiderweb onto the coordinating colors and then added my five 2.5” square photos, one to each spiderweb. I wanted a small and colorful title so I used the tiny alpha stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book to spell out “Spooky Fun”. To embellish each spiderweb, I used tiny phrase stickers, floral pieces and the tiny spiders that are from the cut file. All of the embellishments came from either the 8-Page Sticker Book or the Sticker Book from the Blooming Wild collection. The tiny puffy dots are from my stash.
I hope you love this Halloween layout as much as I do! I challenge you to use a non-Halloween themed collection and create a fun and whimsical Halloween layout! Thank you for stopping by Paige’s blog today and have a wonderful day!
