Graphic 45, Want 2 Scrap and Art Glitter's Blog Hop

Graphic 45, Want 2 Scrap and Glitter Arts are having a blog hop all this week. Today it is my turn to share my project with you all. You can hop from my blog to the other Graphic 45 Design Team Members Blogs each day. Leave a comment on Graphic 45 Blog to go into the draw to win a prize.



I was given a chipboard board Album, and some lovely pearls, crystals and gems to play, with along with some beautiful glitter from Art Glitter.
 I decided to do something different rather than an album. My daughter did a trip last year with her two sisters to the UK and USA. It was a Harry Potter theme tour, so the new Happy Haunting range was perfect for this project. I did a different theme for each "page" of my wall hanger.

My Album was a gate fold album, with two wrought iron gates on the front. I inked them black and used them on the pages. Because it is a gate fold every page was a 1/2 size. I covered them with my favourite papers, punched more holes in them and used rings to link them all together. I picked out my favourite ribbons and tied them to the rings.


I covered the chipboard  with "Enchanted Garden" and made a frame using "Friday Night"  around the edge. I cut some of the images from "Jolly Jack-O-Lantern  and added them to my page. The letter stickers were perfect for adding Anna's name. The wrought iron part of the album was the perfect background for my photo. I used some of the Art Glitter I had received on my sunflower.


  I covered this page with some of "Word Play" and added two photos. Some pearls from Want 2 Scrap were the perfect addition for this page.


 I covered this page with "Trick or Treat" and cut a fence from "Midnight Magic" and mounted it with 3L foam squares. I added some green pearls from Want 2 Scrap. I found the word stickers from my sticker sheet were a nice touch.


 For this page I used "Jeepers Creepers". I used the other wrought iron gate and tucked two images from "Jeepers Creepers".


 For my last page I used "Bewitched" and "Halloween Greetings" along with an image from "Jeepers Creepers".
 On every page I used a card from "Jeepers Creepers" for my journaling. I used the fine Art Glitter and used the glue that came with the glitter  to outline the spiders web on every card. It worked like a treat, and I wish it showed up more in the photos.
 When I showed it to Anna, she loved it, a great reminder of her big trip away.
