Spooky Tags

Is it Monday afternoon already?!!!!  I thought I would post this before I get videoing - it has been a while since I posted on You Tube so I thought I might warm up with a spooky art journal page........or maybe a card......or maybe a spooktacular home decor item........I guess you will have to tune in to find out what I eventually get up too!!!!

I have had a lovely weekend with my crafting friends and I actually did some work.  But don't worry I did fit in plenty of chat and coffee and cake too!!!!  So today I am sharing three Halloween tags that I made with some of my Lost and Found Halloween papers (My Minds Eye).

All the tags have been made with elements from the papers and die cut sheets so they were quick to make and fun to put together.  Today I have added a little glossy accents to the bottles which is still drying as you can see from this photo.  I have added ribbon and some cute halloween pumpkin buttons from my stash.  

This one also has glossy accents drying!  I love all the yummy orange glitter elements in this paper collection.

....and last but not least.....

I think this is my favourite from my trio of tags.  I fussy cut the pumpkins from one of the papers and layered them up for this 3D look.  I painted the images with my Distress Inks.  I am thinking of incorporating my tags in Halloween layouts as I have lots of lovely papers still left to work with.

Hope your Monday is a little brighter than the one we are having here today - it is wet and grey out there......crafting weather ;-)  'Every cloud has a crafty lining!!!!!'

Thank you for popping by X


  1. Lovely tags! I especially love the 3rd one and how the pumpkins/leaves are so transparent etc. I enjoy looking at your work closely as there are always somany details. Enjoy your day! (tomorow I am home as I need to have my roof repaired from all of last years storms.Hope your weather improves!

    1. Hi Winnie hope you have good weather today for your roof repairs. The sun is shining here today but the weather man forecasts rain later - Lets hope he is wrong as usual!!! ;-) I see what you mean about the pumpkins looking transparent - I didn't notice until you pointed it out. The pumpkins were printed on a music sheet hence the transparent illusion! I wish I could claim the credit !! Hugs Helen x

  2. Wonderful tags Helen. I don't 'do' halloween, but I do love to see all the crafty makes it inspires and do have a go myself on occasion. I'm looking forward to seeing your new video to see what you got up to ;)
    It's certainly Autumn here now, the nights are drawing in and the temperature is low enough that the heating is now on in the house. Hope you'e keeping cosy :0)) xx

    1. Hi Mo - Since you are not keen on Halloween you may like the beginning of my video more than the end!!!! I hope to get it posted today so you will see what I mean ;-) Sunny outside so far today but it is cold so we also have the heating on. The weatherman is predicting rain later though. Might see if I can get Comet out for a walk before that happens!!!! Editing first for me though. Have a great day. Hugs Helen x
