Flip-Pal & a Layered Cutie

Layering with Style
One of my favorite techniques

Canvas scanned (Flip-Pal)

I know, it's right smack in the middle of the summer but I just had to post this little cutie. Besides, October isn't that far off now! So here's a little Halloween cutie to make you look forward to the fall months ahead.

Using a Flip-Pal, scan over the image. A Flip-Pal scanner is mobile & so HANDY to have in your tool caddy! Scanning your image seems to bring out the details more than a photograph. Here you can see all the different layering that's been done.

Painted an 8x8 canvas first....lifted areas of paint in spots. Now comes the FUN part! Have I ever told you that I love recycling! Most of the paper here to create the background is from old books meant for the trash heap. I used ColorBox to color the pages & then using punches, cut out all the leaves for the tree. The little cutie holding the pumpkin & black cat is a vintage piece cut out & layered on the canvas. For further layering effect, I stamped swirls over the sides & front & added a trim at the bottom. The little cutie's hat has a crystal at the tip top to add some shine....for every girl needs some bling in her life!

Really cute design and nice use of the flip pal. I'm trying to stay in August mode (time for late blooming flowers - yeah!) but enjoyed the peek into Autumn. Thanks for sharing.
