The air is crisping up and the leaves are changing. I’m beginning to think about Halloween. I’m feeling the October Vibes and loving it. How about you? Do you love the colors and sights of this time of year? How about a little roundup of Creative Squad projects to get you also in the seasonal mood.
Over the years my Creative Squad has produced so many amazing projects that it’s fun to go back and look through for inspiration. (You can see the archive of all this awesomeness here on the blog.) This time Halloween and Autumn were on my mind and I wanted to share some projects that the Squad has created that are so fun and so now.
Let’s take a look!
First up is Judi Kauffman and a suite of masks using rich metallic gold paint and my stencils over black for a bit of style and drama. Check out the post here for her how to.
Even if you’re staying in these days, you can still get into the spirit through your artmaking. Making a seasonal inspired canvas is one idea. In this project our Squad alum Josefine Fouarge created a layered piece using my Art Deco, Art Tag, Chain Link, and Cross Circle rubber stamps. How does your neighborhood look this time of year?
Card making is another way to express the colors and vibe of the season. Maura Hibbitts used my Van Vorst Fan Positive Negative foam stamps and my Art Deco Wallpaper stencil to create these richly hued cards in this post.
Squad alum Josefine created this cool card using embossing powder, Distress inks, and my Manhattan stencil. Love the result and you can see how she does it here.
With just a few simple supplies like acrylic paint, cardstock, and a stencil (like Toledo), Squad alum Cheiron Brandon shows us another inspiring card idea here. It’s all about those autumnal colors and that bold pattern.
Now you’re going to need some envelopes right? Judi has us covered with this post using my Mini Fan Foam Stamp Set and inks in the colors of the season.
Let’s finish up with a classic for this time of year – a Halloween card idea from Cheiron from this post. She combined collage papers, orange acrylic, and my Buenos Aires stencil for big impact.
I hope you feel inspired to create a few things with an autumn or Halloween vibe to them and have some fun celebrating.
Here are some of the supplies used in these posts:
