Hooray for Halloween!

I don't know about you, but FALL and Halloween are two of my favorites things in life. There is something miraculous about the metamorphosis of the hot, hot summer melting away into the cooler and more colorful Fall.
And what isn't to love about Halloween? Trips to the pumpkin patch, corn mazes, warm apple cider and all of those cute little ghosties trick or treating....and I can't forget the candy!
So for the rest of the month, the Shimmerz DT is going to be sharing some fabulous, shimmery, spooky and creative Halloween ideas...BUT we want YOU to play along with us.
What's in it for you? How about the chance to win a spooktacular Shimmerz prize pack that Stacey has so generously put together. Complete with all the colors you will need to create your own Halloween projects, this prize could be yours if you play along:


Simply create a Halloween project using Shimmerz products and link it to this post. We will be picking a winner on the spookiest day of the year: Halloween!

Here is a project to help get your creative mojo flowing:
Here is a spooky layout of my daughter all dressed up as a dark fairy and she ummm fit the mood perfectly! I used several different Shimmerz products and techniques to create this layout. First I painted the background using a foam brush with our new Luscious Lilac Pearlz.

 Then I wanted to add some spurts of orange on there...and what better color than our new Carrot Top Pearlz? I smeared a bit on the corners with my fingers, then used the tip of my finger to fling paint across my page. I like that kind of sporadic look and the texture. The pearlz paints are nice and thick, just perfect for creating little pools of color!


And no project is complete without a large dosing of BLINGZ. I used it here on top of a cut out flocked crow. He was just begging for some Hi Ho Silver Blingz!
And once again, the final shimmery project:
 
I invite YOU to come create along with us and don't forget to LINK to this post! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I don't decorate much with spooky goodness, but I love the colors of Halloween. I made a project, and even attempted a tutorial-with my Shimmerz Vibez in Penny Pincher. I'd be delighted if you took a look! http://thebalddragonfly.blogspot.com/2010/10/tutorial-attempt.html
