Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party!

Good morning and happy Labor Day! Today is the Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and linky party! This month's challenge is to create something for the fall. I went with Halloween because it is my favorite holiday! I love making home decor pieces that I can customize.  I created this piece to hang in my kitchen off of my hutch.  
I incorporated vintage digital papers that you can find HERE.  This adorable witch image that you can find HERE.  I added ribbon from Stamp Simply, that you can find HERE.  I cut leaves and flowers using my Silhouette and gave them color using my water colors. 
I used lace and created a shaker background behind that cute lil' witch. I added a few bats to add to my Halloween theme. 

So how did I add all of those layers?
Here's what I started with.  Digital papers printed and cut to size. 
I cut out the center of the frame and inked up the edges a bit. 

I cut this image and added German Glass glitter to the edges. 

I cut and water colored my flowers. 

And leaves! :)
I wanted to create a shaker background, so I added crafty foam tape that you can purchase HERE.

I added my sequins....

And plopped it directly on my other digital paper. 

I added a bit of lace and another strip of digital paper.  The lace is from SRM stickers. 

I started to put everything together here......

And you end up with something like this! ;)
Be sure to visit the other gals' blogs for more inspirations! 
Happy Labor Day!

That is very cool, Michele! It's amazing what you manage to accomplish with the time you have. Pretty in a Halloween kind of way, and I do like Halloween projects. Happy birthday!
