Day 2 – Halloween or Christmas? You Choose – Have a Hoot. Welcome back to my Halloween or Christmas? You Choose mini series, today featuring the Have a Hoot Bundle, which has to be one of the cutest Bundles in the August to December Catalogue.
I love all the little images in this set, and really think it is for so many more occasions than just Christmas and Halloween. There are definitely images that can be used for Valentine’s Day and any Birthday or gift giving occasion.
The original project for this card is on page 75 of the August to December Catalogue. I always take a look at all the projects in the Catalogues, there are some amazing ideas in there, so don’t forget to have a look.
I did add a Pumpkin Pie Cardbase and the Iridescent Pearls (which I think are STUNNING), but otherwise this was a very close CASE (Copy And Share Everything) project. As long as you credit the original artist, anything you see online can be used as inspiration for your own projects. Don’t you love the Iridescent Pearl Spider!
This image gives you a reasonable look at the Shimmer Paint I used to splatter across the Basic Black Mat. It is a really easy technique and great for adding a little texture to a project. It is perfect as stars in my very dark night sky.
I have to say that I am not a great fan of Halloween as we have it now. I think it has become too commercial and can, especially for older people, be a worrying time. Strangers knocking on your door, dressed in potentially frightening costumes, threatening to play a trick on you….You get my thoughts. So let’s look at the Christmas version instead.
I am sure you can see the likenesses to the original. By changing the background colour, having a white moon and a Poppy Parade sentiment strip, suddenly we have a cheery project.
I really like the Adhesive Snowflakes as an addition to any winter project, but on this project they can also be ‘seen’ as stars, it is just a change of perception. I hope you have enjoyed my second project and that you will come back for the rest of the mini series.
