As it is a new month I created my October calendar spread to join in on Kate Crane's 2013 Calendar Project. Here's the background:
Dylusions Ink Sprays in Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine, Lemon Zest, Dirty Martini along with Julie Balzer's Leaves stencil (12" x 12"). Foam stamps and orange acrylic paint were stamped on then outlined with marker.
I finished it by stamping and outlining the weekdays using a foam stamp set by Magenta (which I've used many times in the last two years calendars). Weekday numbers are an old stamp set by PSX. An assortment of stickers were added on along with the moon face image (Retro Café Art) and Halloween Faux Postes (ARTchix Studio).
In continuing with the Halloween theme I received a pkg. containing the tags I received in a swap I participated in recently. You can see the tags I made here.
The swap was hosted by the generous Sallie Rodman who decorated the envies and included the baggie of tags, a hand made card and Halloween ephemera!
First three of the six tags I received:
The other three tags:
