a steampunk time traveler…
that’s what my oldest, drew wanted to be for halloween last year. his costume was probably one of the more complicated ones i’ve sewn for either kid over the years! we didn’t get it as “finished” as we wanted to though, so we’ll be adding to it again this year.
i had a few leftover papers and a bunch of scraps of the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting line after my halloween tryptic class, so i was inspired to put them to use for a “fussy” layout – worthy of the victorian influenced steampunk style – to document drew’s 2011 hallloween costume.
here’s what i came up with…
the background papers are from My Mind’s Eye, but all the other papers are from G45’s Happy Haunting. the layout is embellished with leaves diecut from vintage book pages that were “smooched” with Smooch Spritz and distressed using ColorBox Cat’s Eye Chalk Inks. the edges of most papers were distressed with chalk inks as well.
other embellies include goodies from my vintage and not-so-vintage stash.
the layout will be on display at Stamp Antonio if you want to take a closer look.
