Halloween Framed Art

I have not created a framed art since the summer.  The last one was a nautical theme in which I used elements from a Paper Pumpkin Kit.  When someone suggested I make a Halloween one, I hesitated at first.  I reached out to my team for some supplies and when they did not have what I needed (shocking – I know) I went to my retired stash of stamps.  I am so thankful for holding onto special stamp sets just for this reason.  Let’s take a look at my Halloween Framed Art.

 

 

Picking Colors:

The stamp bundles are unfortunately retired, however the Toil & Textured Designer Series Paper is available!  To start my project, I picked all the colors in solid card stock that are included in the Designer Series Paper.  From there, I narrowed down may selection.  I knew I wanted bright, so I picked Basic Black, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch and Pumpkin Pie.  Pineapple Punch is not listed as a color but I loved how it looked with the others I had selected.  Plus I own Pineapple Punch Ribbon!

Small Details:

Each square is 3″ x 3″ and the layering designer series paper is 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4.”  This is the first framed art I created where I alternated the square color between Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie.  I also used a pattern paper on each square with the exception of the center square.  The center square I took 1/2″ strips of the card stock and adhered to a 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ square before mounting it to the Pumpkin Pie square.  Of course, each square is unique and I tried to use different elements that represented Halloween.  I am really happy with the end result and I hope you are too!

Time to assemble!

Do you worry the squares will not be straight?  No problem!  I take each square, turn it over and place a mini glue dot to the center.  This helps with tacking down the square into position.  However, if I need to make an adjustment, I can easily move it without ruining all my hard work. A friend suggested to cut 1 1/4″ squares and place them in the four corners of the 12″ x  12″ card stock.  Next, I position the 4 corner squares followed by the four inside ones. I always leave my center square for last.
