A Mini Halloween TripTych . . .

Happy September Everyone. This time of year brings thoughts of the Fall and Christmas season and I am working on mini-books and tags for workshops.

But a break with this bitty triptych by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts was a must. I love doing mini projects to get me in the spirit of the season. I began with the Arch Top House Silhouettes. This set comes with three pieces. Each piece measures 2.5" wide X 4" tall.

First I used a large black Sharpie and edged the chipboard. Then I used Hinging Tape to hold the 3 houses together. I kept 3/8" between each piece to make folding easier. Tape was applied on both sides of the chip.

Then, because the hinging tape would be seen after decorating, I painted the hinging tape black (and obviously not in a pretty way!).

Next I covered all arch top houses with decorative paper.

Using Creepy Corners 1, I *painted* the spiderweb black with a sharpie. Because the top of the Arch Top Houses are not exactly square, I applied the spiderweb off kilter, glued it down and cut off what was overhanging.

Of course Halloween calls for a black cat. I chose Rickety Fence With Cats for my next panel.  I applied Rust Effect Paste to the fence followed by Seth Apter's Baked Texture and heat set all.

Then painted the cat black and added Stickle eyes. I love the way the Baked Texture and Rust Effect Paste looks on the fence.

I could easily use Victorian Corners 2 on every project I create. They are gorgeous. This next panel was topped off with a corner after embossing with copper embossing powder.

On the last panel I used the stalks from the Fall Shape Set. First, the stems were stained with Picket Fence and the buds with Antique Brass.

Then I applied prills to each bud.

So now I'm ready for Halloween (well not quite but it's a start).

What are you creating today?
