GCD: Halloween Layout. EYES.

I'm up on the GCD Studios blog today....

Hello everyone..
It's my most FAVORITE time of the year.. Halloween!!! I love everything spooky, I love being scared, and I love to dress up.

Today on the blog, we are focusing on Halloween layouts and I am highlighting spooky eyes. A couple of years ago, my son found this amazing eyeball hat. There was no costume to go with it, but he really wanted this hat. So I had to get creative for the costume. We took the colors from the eyeballs and cut out fabric to coordinate and then created "eyeballs" in his tshirt, and I sewed them into the fabric. Next, we used makeup to accent his eyes with the same colors. I knew I had to use these photos for my page.

Here is the layout that I created for the Eyes theme:
For some direction some triangles and sewed a single straight white line to create an effect of a hanging spider web:
Then for the eyeballs, I punched out circle layers and recreated the colors and layers of the eyeballs. I added some craft store "eyeballs" in the center:
And added some white mist of the black cardstock to make it pop:
My kids LOVE the craft store eyeballs and are always wanting to use them, so throw them on a page and make it "spooky".

Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Supplies: "Chalkboard" Storybook, "Chloe" "Hailey" "Mariah" Oh Happy Day line, "Sour Cherry" Sweet Tooth.
Other: cardstock, mist, bling, sharpie pen, sewing machine stitching, and Paste On Eyes from the craft Store.
