It's Lookbook time.

I can't believe it is November already, where has this year gone? And even more surprised that the fourth edition of the fabulous Lookbook from Sarah Hurley and I thought I would show you some of my creations. I ventured out of my comfort zone of cards quite a few times in this issue and you will see that from this post.

I decided to look out all the lovely Martha Stewart paints that have been hiding in my craft room and make something completely different.  I bought door hanger blanks ages ago and they have been lying unloved, time to change that.  As the Lookbook is an Autumnal themed one, I thought I would make it slightly Halloweeny, though this can be used at all times, if you are anything at all like me ;)

I painted it with Arrowhead, then Silver.  I stamped the "Keep Out" and "Casting Spells" using Block Alpha Stamps, the "Beware" and the skull came from Angelica Strange Stamps and Malcolm Strange Stamps. To add some texture, I masked off the words using a post it note and  used Sarah's Crackle Background Stamp. I added a skull and crossbones die cut, which I cut from Black Magic Co'redinations and scrunched it up, then sanded it to reveal a wee glimpse of orange.

I am sure you will agree this is different for me, and hubby has claimed it already for his tool cupboard!!

I hope you love the new Lookbook as much as I do, and enjoy having a look through it.
