October 2013 Tag based on Tim Holtz tags of 2013

Here is my October 2013 Tag based on the October Tim Holtz 12-tags-of-2013 tutorial. I love the new owl and moon dies!!! I also plan to get the frame die sometime in the future!

I love Halloween and thought it would be fun to swing on the moon this Halloween!

I tried out the new Tim Holtz glitter on the moon. It works nicely! I crackled the tree and tried out the new Tim Holtz spooky fence strip die. I only used the gate part. It's a cool die. I made the charm using a free image from the internet somewhere and a jewelry charm finding and some epoxy resin.

Here's the second tag I made. I stuck more to the tutorial. I still haven't got the marbleizing with the distress paints technique down yet. I'll have to practice some more. I got it to work better a few months back. I like the glitter frame die from the tutorial, and think it's a great idea for many different cards/projects, so I tried to improvise with the frame since I don't have the frame die from the tutorial yet.

So I glittered up another owl from the new owl and moon movers and shapers die's but then I decided to use the owl in my Spooky Halloween Carnival I'm building for Halloween. The gate strip die will be excellent around my Carnival!! The Carnival is not finished yet, but you can check it out here.

My Spooky Halloween Carnival Village based on the  Laura Carson's "Halloween Carnival Event" on the Artfully Musing blog.

I included a few pictures of items from my village below.
Here you can get a tiny ticket to my spooky Halloween Carnival.

Or take a relaxing seat on the bench where the witches hang out.

or take a ride on my Scary Carousel if you dare!!!
The song is called "Calliope of Death" and is available on itunes.

So even if you don't enjoy Halloween like I do, we just have fun with it. Nothing evil there, only skeletons, spiders, and goblins goofing off!!!

My husband teaches anatomy, skeletons just want to have fun!

So many fun projects, so little time!
