Hi everyone, this is Niki Rowland and I’m delighted to be back guest designing for Pretty My Page again. You can find the process video for this spooky page here.

I had the awesome Sugar Skull cut file to work with (pre-cut version here). I cut it from silver cardstock and I also cut a solid piece to back it with. I cut this from black and white patterned paper. I stuck the silver skull outline and detail onto the black background.

I added splatters to my black cardstock background with silver paint. I then added my photo with lots of distressed and torn paper layers. I also fussy cut some spooky moths from patterned paper and positioned them around my layout.

I added skull Perspextives and a few embellishments. I attempted to just stick to a black, silver and white colour scheme. I added some brads and some silver sequins. I also added torn patterned paper strips to each side of my layout.

I love making spooky Halloween layouts, they are totally different to my usual style and I really enjoy doing something a little bit different and pushing myself out of my comfort zone a bit.

Thanks so much for having me Lisa-Jane

Happy scrapping everyone
