Halloween Putz House~Scripture memory Book Page
This is a page for my scripture memory book. I've been working on it for two years. I'm pretty slow! I used the sketch from this week's StampTV scrapbook challenge for this. I'm using My Mind's Eye Bohemia and whatever I have around that coordinates well with it. The copper brads are from one of my STV kits-don't know which one, both Floral Frenzy and Signs of Autumn came with these gorgeous copper brads.
It occurred to me after I uploaded these pictures that they might seem a strange pair to some. I'm not one of those Christians who believes that everyone who has anything to do with Halloween is a Satan worshiper. I know who wins in the end. I know who has my back. I also know I love playing with Halloween colors and decor and the fun of costumes, and the mystery, and the leaves whirling around and the crisp autumn air, and the flickering jack-o-lanterns. I have a minor in speech and theater, for Pete's sake! I've been a drama teacher for nine years! What's not to love about Halloween!? I'll continue to celebrate Halloween until I am convicted that it's wrong.
I used a Crafty Secrets Chipboard house. This is my first one, and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I'm not finished with the inside yet, and boy does the white under the roof show! I almost decided not to post the pics because of it! I'll also have to fix the edges so the white doesn't show. I already spent a lot of time with a black Sharpie on all the chipboard I added, but I neglected the seams-obviously!!
The skull is from Creative Play Stamps' Skulls I set. The little witches are Penny Black. The stickers are Crafty Secrets. The glitter is Doodle Bug Sugar Coating in Beetle Black.
