Halloween Canvas with Mini Flip Book by Suzanne Sergi

Happy Wednesday! Today, I am bringing you a new project featuring Masquerade Party. I love decorating for Halloween, and it is also a time where I enjoy creating a few altered projects to add my decor. This time I used a 10x10 canvas for the backdrop. I also pulled in some hardware from Tim Holtz to add a mini flip book right in the center. A few of your favorite Halloween snapshots, and you have spooky decor instantly!

To create this altered item, I used the Masquerade Party chipboard sheet, decorative brads, die cut accessory sheet, decorative border strips, and the file folders. A little ink, and fun spider from the craft store, helps to finish the canvas.

The first step is covering the sides and a bit of the front with black acrylic paint. I then distressed the edges of the canvas with a sanding block. You can also see at the top, and sides of the canvas I used a paint dauber to create random dots along the sides. Adds a bit of whimsical charm! I added the banner strips from the 12x12 Masquerade Accessory sheet to create an instant banner. I cut a few of them so they would not over lap too much with the ring binder clip. I also added some glitter paper underneath one of the banners, and embellished with mini bats. In the centers I pulled in tiny orange rhinestones. 

Here you can see the plastic spider with twine tied around its body. I also, hung a mini tag punched from the die cut accessory sheet. On the cover of the mini flip album I used the damask chipboard frame. I layered underneath a piece of embossed vellum. On the top of the vellum, is one of the cute paper bags, I used for my title. Around this mini bag, I used a large glittered moon, and chipboard witch to round the embellishing details.

Now, here is a peek at the inside pages. I used a mixture of patterned papers, vellum, mini treat bags and the file folders to create my pages. You can see one of the vellum treat bags being used as the background to adhere my photo of my three children. A simple sticker adds for a fun embellishment in the corner.

I created a die cut flower from one of the papers. Inside I embellished with a button sticker, and brad.

Another page featuring one of my favorite Halloween photos of my daughter. I create a spooky embellishment in the left hand corner of the page. I also spray misted the ledger paper for an even eerier effect. 

Here is one last page of my sweet son. Again using the die cut accessory sheet I used bits and pieces to add spooky charm to his page. This will definitely be a piece that will have your family, and friends talking about. What a perfect way to showcase your favorite Halloween memories during the spooky Halloween holiday!
