#G45DarkSide Challenge – “Halloween in Wonderland”

I came up with this last minute design for the #G45DarkSide Challenge. I chose Graphic 45 “Halloween in Wonderland” because of the deep, and dark, rich colors in this beautiful Halloween themed collection.

For this project, I used Recollections Memory Tray. I distressed the tray using Liquitex Gesso, Prima Marketing Sparks Acrylic Paints and Rust Effect Past, and Liquitex Mars Black Acrylic Paint. Additionally, I used Prima Marketing Art Stones in some of the tray corners.

I fussy cut pieces from the paper collection. I added stacked branch elements from a Silhouette cut file (#6893) and a 3D tree from the Silhouette Ledge (#66039) Village cut file. I applied Liquitex Paint (Cadmium Red Deep Hue and Mars Black) to a puffy heart and added some chain and clock elements. I distressed some keys from my Bead Landing jewelry supplies.

I distressed the memory tray handle with the same Prima products and added ribbon from S.E.I. “Eerie Alley” and black tulle from my sewing supplies. I added finishing touches with the chipboard elements that come with the Deluxe Collector’s Edition of “Halloween in Wonderland”.

I really loved the way this project design turned out. It will make a great edition to my Halloween home décor.

I hope it inspires you to create.
