Something I discovered during my adolecence and adult years is I am a pack rat. Some examples of this can be seen in the dozens of old cards I have recieced from family over the years, boxes of photos, even numerous ticket stubs in my purse. But, fear not my friends I found the perfect outlet for my “collections,” scrapbooking. Scrapbooking is an awesome theraputic experience not only creatively, but my purse thanks me too! I enjoy using many mediums for my scrapbook, paper, stickers, fabric, ribbon, and paint to name a few. As fall has finally arrived and the nights seem to get shorter I have returned to scrapbooking.
Since Halloween is just around the corner I have started making a backdrop for my Halloween page, and wanted to share it with you!
I usually start with a basic wavy paint outline in a lighter color( for this one its grey). I then make it wavy all the way to the bottom of the page and then add black to some forest green to make the highlight color for the dark grass.
Then I add more white to black paint to make a lighter grey and start making thin oval loops. These oval loops work great for clouds. They don’t have to be even since clouds in nature are not.
Then make a space in between the clouds and paint two half circles in a bright yellow or orange – yellow color. Once it dries make two small loops over the moon to add to the spooky effect for a Halloween backdrop.
I hope you enjoyed my how-to guide and I hope the pictures were helpful for your own scrapbook pages.♥
