Day One with 31 Days of Halloween and Desert Island Craft Challenge...Sweet Escapes

Happy Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween

I am sharing with you a piece from Sweet Escapes.This is for Desert Island Crafters.

I think the images are adorable .
I do hope you will come play.
The second thing I have to share with you is a junk Journal I am swaping with Happy Crafter Shell.
Hi Shell...:)
This is the beginning of the first secretary It is not in a binding yet.
so here we go with a few of your pages.
I wanted to keep it vintage and lean more for the colored images towards the end ...the first secretary I decided to use...
yes it is getting chunky
This is not the cover ..it is the beginning of the first secretary.The paper is Recollections from Michaels.
This is the sentiment on the inside cover

ok...this tag I made behind the tuck on the right is made from Christmas foil paper and I used black acrylic on the top...pretty isn't it. :)
you never have enough private spots to journal so I made a extra little journal to go inside the tuck in front of the foil tag.
This theme We are the Hero of our own story is one I am going to incorporate later with some of Ike's colored images... and of course Poe.The stamp set is from Stampers Anonymous.
This is where I felt the composition coming together. The skully tuck at the bottom left holding two tags the skully glasses and the fortune card.The glasses are from Stampers Anonymous.
On the right a large tuck for journaling. Of course every paper in all of this is stained with coffee and smells and feels wonderful and crisp.
the feather is a gift to you from my chicken Maple Leaves
Can you guess the theme yet?
Here is a bigger hint
and a bigger one...and the sentiment is from Wendy Vecchi
You can see the beautiful Glimmer mist spray on this I got from Canvas Corp Brands. It is Amethyst no.21427.most of the paper is recollections except the manila folders I coffee stained and embossed. The doilies are also coffee stained and the fabric is burlap canvas from Canvas Corp brands...

sO i WILL STOP HERE AS NOT TO LOSE YOU ALL...happy day one..OF THE 31 dAYS OF hALLOWEEN

LOVE AND HUGS
