Caught in my Web – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog sharing this layout. Hope you can stop by and check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚ This week I created a Halloween themed layout using a lot of gorgeous Creative Embellishments chipboard and wood pieces. I adore working with their fabulously intricate designs…so much FUN!…and have been amazed by the new designs being added each week! Did you know new pieces are added almost every day?

I’m actually backlogged on a few years worth of Halloween pics and was thrilled to see the variety of titles and designs Nicolle and Mike have been coming up with. This particular Halloween, I just had the 3 youngest kids with me and Larry was running late at work. He ended up joining us further down the street which was another fun surprise for the kids since they weren’t expecting him to catch up with us. ๐Ÿ˜€ Here’s what I came up with combining the CE designs with a sketch from Purple Pumpkin.

 

Caught in my Web

Here’s a close up of the web and spider piece from the Caught in my Web set. I altered it by dabbing it with white distress stain, then coating the web parts with stickles and filling in the spider with a Pitt big brush marker:

I altered the Spider Web Flourish Border the same way, but applied Art Anthology dimensional crystal to the flourishes with a brush. Instead of using a sweeping motion, I created more interest by dabbing it with the tip of the flat brush to create peaks:

Here’s a close up of the cluster I created by snipping a section off of the Web Panel and layering it with wood cuts. I used 2 of the Autumn Leaves and a Pumpkin. I altered the leaves using acrylic paint and the pumpkin using a mixture of acrylic paint and Art Anthology dimensional crystal:

The title piece was altered using distress stain and I applied stickles only to the words Caught and Web. The bats were altered with black acrylic paint which was dabbed on thickly with the side of my brush to give them a bit of texture:
