Day 29!!!

Hello and welcome! Y'all are flippin' amazing for coming and seeing me and leaving me wonderful words each and every day! (And that Donna solved the spelling mystery).
So, this is a creepy page for my journal. I first layered up dappers and wiped it off with paper, then layered distress stain and wiped it off with paper, while it was still wet. The skull stamp is from Sailing Pineapple, I inked it with black ink and lightly went over that with brushed pewter distress stain so it would have shimmer. The gentleman is a Tim Holtz found relative with a Mary charm. For the book card holder, I heavy handly used the gothic stencil.
Now, Teresa has something awesome waiting for your eyeballs! Enjoy! Lisa

A very vintage project using items from Tim Holtz! I am happy to I have met Tim 3 x now and last time got a personal tag from him!

That "found relative" looks a bit less than comfortable all spiffed up for a photo.
Nicely done in monochromatic theme.

This really has a creepy vintage quality. Fabulous in the "old photo" colors. Love the stamp and stencil. The "relative" almost looks like one of those photos people used to take of loved (?) ones after they've already died. Just propped 'em up and snap! EEEK! xxD

Perfect vintage Halloween page! Love the creepy skull stamp, so subtle. The found relative looks suitably scared!
