Dreamweaver Stencils: A Bumpy Ride Through October

Are you ready to be spooked, mystified and magically transported to the land of Halloween and holidays? Hop on board the Dream Team train as we journey through all things Mysterious and Magical through the month of October. Our guest "engineer" is Miss Eerie herself, Alison Heikkila. October promises to be a very bumpy ride...

My project is a framed wall hanging, featuring the newly released Vintage Decor stencil. The first time that I saw it, I immediately was reminded of Cinderella's carriage as it evolved from a pumpkin to an elegant mode of transport. My version is just a bit more spooky...I've added plenty of black ink distressing, along with sponged white "smoke and fog", creating clouds of it with the use of the Picasso stencil/tool. My pumpkin was created from three Spellbinder ovals overlapping, with the Vintage Decor design pasted in Matte Black, and thoroughly covered in the Black Ultra Fine Glitter from Art Glitter. In real life, there is awesome sparkle on this, but a bit difficult to photograph. Fun papers from BoBunny, Recollections, Doodlebug Designs, and Bazzill brought the look together including the attached wagon wheels, and a jumbo corsage of May Arts ribbons and textiles added dimension. Adding a bit to the creepy element, some word stickers from Tim Holtz..."Something Wicked this Way Comes"...a great quote from Shakespeare's MacBeth.

You clever girl! Love turning the ovals into a pumpkin 'carriage' and pasting the motif over. Reminds me also of those elaborately carved pumpkins. What a fun project for Halloween décor!
