Yay…Halloween is coming. ..

These are the front and back covers of the Halloween ‘lookbook” I am creating.

Waiting for glue to dry…it’s difficult.

So…while I am waiting…I’ll fill you in a little bit about what is going into this journal and what is being used to make it.

Those wonderful faerie covers?  You can find them–and so much more– here, as digital downloads.

Inside there will be more digital downloads, which I bought from here.

I bought ephemera from here–as in actually paper goods that arrived in the mail…and utterly delighted and overwhelmed me.

I also bought some ribbon from here.

There is also plenty of recollections and Tim Holtz for paper, ephemera, washi tape.

The covers are actually being made from two 8×10 inch canvas boards, from Artist Loft.

I have collected bits and bobs and pieces from every store I have walked into in the past few weeks.  A little bit here.  A little bit there.  My youngest loves to help grab things…

We are a house full of people who love Halloween…as say as our newest member, a little orange cat, crawls around my shoulders trying to chew on my hair…

Help comes from all over and everywhere, whether asked for or not, around here.  🙂

This will be the first time I am making a book specifically as an inspiration piece, not to use later on for artwork or writing.  I wanted to make sure I gave credit where it is due…before I dig into the filling of the book and forget where everything came from…

So here’s your hint.  Here’s your tiny taste…more will be coming.

What are you doing to prepare for Halloween this year?
