Halloween layout for Gina's Designs

Today I am sharing amlayout featuring my dog Billie Jean all dressed up for Halloween.  I had fun dressing her up in costumes from the dollar store.  Of all my dogs, Billie Jean is the only one that actually seems to enjoy hamming it up for the camera.  I embellished this layout by combining chippies from Gina's Designs and some fun new stencils I had ordered online.

I inked the hanging clock with prima chalk inks in black and orange, covered the back of the clock with frosted film, and applied glass microbeads to the sticky part.  All other chippies were also covered in Prima chalk inks as well as the intricate doilies peeking out from the top of the layout.  I made the layered witch embellishment at the bottom right of the photo by beginning with a doily, then added a scalloped orange glittered paper layer that I had punched with a scallop punch, then added the witch image that was part of the paper line by using a round punch.  The layers are pop dotted to make a dimensional embellishment.  The doilies are so useful in making your own embellies.
