Happy Halloween Altered Frame

Well it time for another challenge at Lessology and this week we want to see Wall Art.



For this week we are sponsored by Tradefish Designs, and the prize is a $20 Gift Certificate.

Now I am double dipping here, I am also using my project for this week's challenge at the Ribbon Carousel , which is to be inspired by this photo.

I picked up this frame from a thrift store.


First I took out the insides and then spray painted the frame.  I once again used my Echo Park Apothecary papers, can you tell I am loving them this year!  I used my Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge for the Title and the Chic & Scary cartridge for the bats.   I also LOVE the new Halloween Divine Twine, so when I received it the other day, I couldn't wait to use it!  The items that are not stickers have been adhered using my trusty Glue Dots, can't live without those either!




There is a great selection of ribbon in the store and be sure to check out this month's kit and the latest Ribbon Carousel - an 8 post version of the original.

Would love to see you play along with us at Lessology and the Ribbon Carousel!
