Boos & Brews Collection: Spooky Layout by Melinda

Hello everyone, it's Melinda with you today and for the first time ever... and I really mean ever, I get to do a Halloween layout using an actual Halloween photo. You see, living on a farm in Australia which doesn't officially celebrate the Halloween holiday, we don't do anything for Oct 31. That was until my teenager and her friends decided they would dress up and have a bit of fun, much to my delight.

I was super excited to get my hands on the Boos & Brews collection this year as I had something to scrap. Albeit, a skeleton face, but hey, who's complaining. I chose to do the photo in black and white so it really stood out from the traditional colours of the collection.

I was Very relieved to have found some white letters in my Doodlebug rub-on collection. I don't know where I would be without them for journaling, especially on black. I also decided that I couldn't go past doing a small amount of collage work on the layout so chose to map out the letters of the word 'eek'. Which fitted perfectly with the picture of my daughter's face.

Just look at the cute little Doodle-Pop spider. There are actually four little Doodle-Pops in this one packet including two wee spiders and the little froggy I used inside the word 'eek' and a fun little bat. I didn't have room for him this time but he will be on a card very soon.

And if you are wondering which paper I have used, it's from the brand new Petite Prints collection and this side is called 'Linen' which is my absolute new favourite.

I just love the new paint splat shapes in this collection so had to use as many as I could fit within the lettering.

So that's it for our Boos & Brews inspiration. We hope you have enjoyed all the wonderful projects from the design team and look forward to spying your work around social media in the near future. Halloween is not that far away so good luck working on those costumes!
