Halloween is one of those magical holidays that my children would love to be part of, however it's not something we celebrate here in Australia. Also, living on a farm might pose a little difficult for Trick or Treating as it's a long walk from door to door. So I needed to think of a concept that I could use the Halloween Parade collection in a non Halloween way which led me to creating this fun little shadow box for my son's bedroom and a layout celebrating my daughter's new dragon 'onsie'... and not a pumpkin or candy corn in sight!
To create the circle I simply used a scoring tool and traced around a smaller bread and butter plate so that the scorer left a slight imprint in the cardstock. You could use a pencil but it might be difficult to erase the line afterwards.
The next step was the fun part... adding all the elements. I simply stuck everything down starting from the top and working my way down with the larger pieces and then filling all the smaller spaces with the new sprinkles, doodads, star jewels, sequins and mini pearls.
I created little triangles to form the background for the layout using all the gorgeous patterned papers and avoiding anything with Halloween themed objects.
Sadly I used up the last of the new Halloween Sprinkles but I couldn't resist as they are so darn addictive and they gave the layout that extra hint of fun.
