Halloween Mini Album with Stand

Well hello there friends and crafty peeps! I've got a great Halloweeny project to share today that I had an absolute blast creating.  Might be a record for the number of chippies I was able to add.  I stared with the  Tablet/Phone Stand but instead of using it for it's intended purpose I'm decorating it up to hold a fun and festive Halloween mini album.
 Isn't this just the most spooktacular addition to holiday decor?

The holder looks just as festive without the book. I super love the vintagy pumpkin.
The cover has a layered frame finished to coordinate with the image and patterned papers.
The base of the book is an ATC Folder which has the pockets already built in! Each pocket  holds a tag layered up with the papers and vintage images.
Each pocket also has a folded insert to add loads of real estate for pictures and journaling.
The insides of the inserts have the coordinating papers.

Each insert also has a clip to hold mementos that can be added without gluing them down.
This stand is so perfect for holing the mini album without the worry of it tipping over.
Please enjoy this video share of this Halloween decor and scrapbook....

I'm starting with the Tablet/Phone Stand and the ATC Folder. Wipe them down with a damp cloth to prepare them for finishing. I coated them with flat black acrylic paint. I've also got a Doodle Frame Rectangle ready for altering.

The frame needs to be separated to finish. I chose to coat the smaller bits with silvery embossing powder and heated it to set. The inside of the frame is coated in the black paint then stamped with a clear embossing powder and set again. This creates a very subtle effect that's similar to damask pattern.  I've clipped the bottom off the Wrought Iron Fence and trimmed it to fit the front of the holder. I've also brought in some Mini Petal Corners and a pumpkin from the Spooky Shape Set.

The silver embossing powder works for the fence and corners. I've adhered them to the stand then used a metallic paste wax to add a vintgy detail to all the corners. The front of  the pumpkin is covered in orange paint and the back has black. I adhered the pieces then used my alcohol markers to add detail. The leaves have green paint. On the finished project I added Stickles to highlight the details.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
