Damask Diva's October Blog Hop - Moonlight

Welcome to our Damask Diva's blog hop. Everyone has great projects so hopefully you started at the beginning of the hop. Our team site is the beginning of the hop so if you'd like to start at the beginning you can go to Damask Diva's and start there.

 I love using the Moonlight paper pack but I'm not a big Halloween person. I love fall and always decorate my house for fall. So I decided to pair the Moonlight paper pack with Fall Harvest stamp set. I cut the orange brackets with the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

 I'm also teaching this layout class in October so I wanted to teach a different technique. Its an old technique but one that the girls at my classes haven't done. I masked off a section of my background paper with scrap paper and used Grey Wool. I dipped my sponge in the ink pad and used circular motions on my paper to give it a soft grey effect. 

 The sentiments from the Fall Harvest stamp set is stamp set are stamped on Canvas shapes and I love the way they turned out. I added  a bit of bling of course. I stamped the leaves on Colonial white cardstock and hand cut them. If I would have had my Alcohol markers at the time I would have used them but I made this layout in August and I didn't have all the marker colors I needed. You'll have to give them a try, I LOVE them!
Make sure you hop on over to Cydney's blog and see her wonderful project. Here's the full lineup if you miss a blog along the way.

Fabulous layout and I like that you made this a fall layout versus a Halloween layout. I don't do Halloween (no kids at home and no grandchildren on the horizon for years to come), but I really hadn't thought about using this paper as a fall layout. Nicely done.

Great layouts. The stamping on the canvas shapes turned out really nice.
