Halloween - It's Official!

At least around our house it's officially decorated that is. I was a busy girl and was able to get 80% outside done and 100% inside done. Well technically I guess it's 100%. I usually have a very intricate Halloween village that I put on display but since the grandbabies have been walking I have omitted it. I was tempted this year to put it out but decided they still aren't quite old enough where I don't have to worry about something getting broken. Other than that it's done.

The outside still needs some spot lights up, cobweb material that I fill across an entire wall and of course fill it with spiders but it's too early for that. All I will get from now until HW is a bunch of debris stuck to it.

I was looking for pictures and a video I took last year to show you my witch who is mostly life size that is cooking up my zombie Harold in a cauldron but alas I guess I deleted it. I have two fog machines that also need to be setup but last year we used dry ice on top of that and lets just say it was a very cool effect and definitely will be repeating that. Ok enough rambling.

Back to more watercolors. I decided to splurge and bought some real watercolor paints instead of using my Distressed Ink dyes. They were a bit more work than the inks becauase I had to come back two or three times to get the effect I was after.

Using up some odds and ends 3-D stickers to complete this scene as well as a Simon Says stamp and dies for the sentiment


  1. Your card is too, too cute, Leslie and love your background! I'm still struggling with getting watercolors to do what I want, so I guess more practice is in order. Hope you'll share photos of your decorations, it all sounds awesome!

  2. This is pure fun, Leslie! Love the watercolor background. :)
