I started by first applying some Tim Holtz rub-ons to my pages as I love this resist look after applying colour. I dug into my halloween stash and found some black patterned papers from an older paper pad from My Mind's Eye called Mischievous and stamped the pumpkin from the Stamper's Anonymous Halloween Blueprints stamp set a few times. I laid out the pumpkins and the tree (which was cut on my Silhouette) so I could see where I wanted the rubons. Next I applied some texture paste with the Harlequin stencil in a few empty areas and let that dry.
Once the texture paste was dry I applied Distress Spray Stains in Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Seedless Preserves. I misted with water to help the colours blend and then dried with my heat gun. After that it was just a matter of adhering the pumpkins and tree with my collage glue stick. I wanted to give some dimension to the front pumpkin by cutting out smaller sections and using some glue dots to pop them up a bit.
In order to 'ground' the images I used a Black Soot Distress Marker to outline the tree and pumpkins and smudged it with my finger to blend. You can see the difference in the photo below.
Last was to add some splatters of Black Soot Distress Spray Stain and a couple mists of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and that was it.
Hope you enjoyed the process :) You can find Tracy's journal page here. I love the silhouette images and how she created them. And her moon is awesome!!
