A Merry Halloween

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, we're doing a Halloween themed little fat book (LFB) swap. It's titled "A Merry Halloween." I'm always behind on my art projects, but I have the design done for the front cover. Woo hoo! The front of the page uses two different Little Yellow Bicycle "Booville" scrapbook papers. I may size the two pieces a little differently for the rest of the pages. I applied the Collage Stuff "Wide Black Vintage Lace" next. The witch is the Tim Holtz "Retro Witch" rubber stamp. I stamped her on white cardstock with black ink. In person, it's more colorful. I colored this image with my Copic markers. The face is actually a light green. The tongue and part of the eyes are purple. The tooth is a bright yellow. The outer rim of the eye is colored with a yellow neon highlighter. I used Ranger "orange peel" Stickles glitter glue on the witch hat. After I put down the witch with Glue Dots Pop-up Dots, I realized it needed something else, so I pulled the witch back up and applied a Gold Spider Web German scrap piece. I printed the words off on my coputer and colored them with a Copic marker. I used a black Copic marker on the edges.

Here's the back. The background paper is black and white, but I used an orange Copic marker to color the white parts. The "treat" bingo card and "costume party" images are from the new Crafty Secrets "Halloween Greetings" Creative Scraps. The kids in costumes are from the new Collage Stuff "Trick or Treat" collage sheet. The little flower is from the Prima Craftable Flowers Minis. These flowers are tiny and white. I colored it with my Copic marker and applied some the orange peel Stickles glitter glue. I may move the text part around on subsequent pages.
Both of these designs are simple really. I have to make 16 of them, so I need something simple that's still fun.
