Inspired by Type Challenge – January 2016 at Oscraps
After reading Rita’s tutorial on her blog, I knew that I had to give this challenge a try. I started out with a Template for the placement of my photo and elements. The template had circles as the clipping masks for the photos, but I deleted them and used a square photo and frame.
To work on the word art, I used the Font “Autumn Chant” for the title, which had some nice swirling on the capital letters. I took one of the Ligatures and placed it over the swirl on the bottom the “S,” lining them up as closely as possible. I took a small hard brush (3px) and brushed pixels in the gaps between the text and the ligature. I then rasterized the type and merged the layers. I erased any extra pixels from the ligature.
For the swirl on the bottom of the paper, I used the same grey paper as my background and clipped it to it.

I just posted three Halloween pages in my Oscraps Gallery from the years 2002, 2004, and 2009. I also used two different Oscraps Halloween Collab Kits. I love the different looks that each on has, yet they all work with each other as well.
Here they are:
The Collabs that I used are:
A Hopping Halloween
Aren’t they fun kits?
Check them out as well as the other new Autumn and Halloween kits in the O-Shop
How long ago did I say that I was going to try to blog a bit more often? Just a few days ago? Maybe last week? And already I have slipped off the wagon and down in the dirt. And its pretty wet and muddy out there with all of the rain we have gotten in those few days. I will try to do what I do best… I am gonna pick myself up and get back to writing again.
Now- if I were savvy and good at sticking with blogging habits, I could have written pages upon pages of stuff about the Romney/Lyme Disease ad that was being discussed last week. God knows I ranted enough about it to Gary. I still might have to go that, rant and all. How does that sound, stream of consciousness screaming about Lyme Conspiracies and ignorant people??
Ok, today I will talk about something fun and positive. 🙂
Did you see the debate last night?
Yeah, not so fun or positive there either…..
Scrapbooking! Now that is a great thing to chat about. Have you checked out any of the Monthly Challenges at Oscraps? There have been some really amazing things going on. One of my favorite pages features my spooky Halloween Kitty.

Here is a great opportunity for all scrappers. Meg is a so nice to work with and her designs are fresh and fun too!
Congrats to my friend Meg, who is a new designer at twolittlepixels! She has a bunch of new kits out and I just scrapped with two of them. They both are relative to how I am feeling about the winter. In this one I am really waiting for spring anxiously:
