I also used up some of the older supplies I had in my stash. It was unreal how much stuff I had collected in a fall and Halloween theme! I can make 10 more albums and still have stuff left over! It's a sickness, I tell ya!
My new technique was to paint and glaze a wood word (SPOOKY) that I picked up at Michaels for a few bucks. I painted it black, then dabbed on white paint, and then some clear glaze. It turned out pretty cool! I also used some Becky Fleck Page Maps to help jump-start my page ideas. She has a great line of 6x12 maps on her website.
Have fun looking! Remember, if you click on the photos they will come up in a larger size.
