Jack Jack-O-Lantern for the Paper Mixing Bowl

I had SO much fun with the October recipe for the Paper Mixing Bowl!! Here's my interpretation of pumpkin pie, using pumpkin (orange) as the main ingredient.
I started by drawing the white lines on the black background paper. Most of the papers are older Basic Grey from different collections. I couldn't help but think of my good  friend Jon while working on this, since he's OBSESSED with this movie! Lol! I hope I did it justice.

Here's a look at the recipe.

This is how I used the utensils:
*Carve something (I fussy-cut the purple hill)
*Disguise something ( I inked the flowers which I made myself  using my Beachy Green Flower Tutorial. By experimenting with different colors of inks you can get such different results.)
*Catch something in a web ( I masked mine)
*Go batty (I stamped them, and used a pp with bats)

For the directions I used Halloween in my journaling. 

Here's a close-up of the masking and the little bottle of poison that I made using my Cricut (October 31st cartridge). I covered the bottle with Glossy Accents, and used some green ink to create smoke coming from it. 

Thanks for visiting me!!!


  1. Cute title circle. We love The Nightmare Before Christmas, too! Looks great, Drea :)

  2. Love that masking work and the wonderful journaling circle pumpkin. This page has me in the spirit to start on my Halloween projects asap (and goodness, I guess I better try to, now that we're officially in October again).

    Thank you very much for your lovely, caring comment. Between our cross country move and my health, I haven't had much time (or energy) to craft this year, but a few projects are getting out the door (figuratively and literally, in the case of cards :) ) and I'm trying to blog on my scrapbook blog about once a week if possible. You've always been so sweet to me, and I can't begin to tell you how touched I am that you paid me a visit today, dear Drea.
