Grow Where You are Planted Halloween Decor Shadow Box Guest Design for Alpha Stamps

Standard

Hey there Peeps! So excited to be sharing the project I created as a guest designer for Alpha Stamps. They sent me oodles of fabby Halloween paper pretties and supplies and I just could not hardly wait to play.

I used  the Little Ghouls Kit from Alpha Stamps along with some bits and pieces from my stash to create this fun Halloween decor Shadow Box. The kit is chock full of vintagy images, patterned papers, holiday emebllies, and chipboard.

I created the shadow box itself with a basic chipboard frame and created boxes for each section then added it to a super sturdy base. The frame was then painted with crackle paint. Each section has a pattern of paper from the kit. These little moon  charms are really fun and make a great accent dangling from  bakers twine and adhered behind coordinating flowers.

Going with  a spooky garden theme I created bat flowers growing on copper stems with itty bitty buttons and charms added.  The little gardener chap has a wheelbarrow to harvest his crop and fanciful wings, altered chipboard gate, and a mossy field to plant in.

Additional holiday characters are displayed in their own environment with chippies, flowers, paper rosettes, sequins, and fun charms from Alpha Stamps.

Star garland and glittery strips add texture and brings the design out onto the front of the frame. The trick to adding layers of vintagy images is to include foam spacers for depth.

You can see from this angle how dimensional this shadow box is.  What fun to play with this kit. Thanks so much to Alpha Stamps for letting me join your team as guest this month and for the generous dt box full of awesome supplies.
