Hi! I'm Jules and I am honored to be the Guest Designer for the month of October.  This is one of my favorite months as I am just a bit witchy at heart.  Every October, I create a few new things to help celebrate one of my favorite holidays.  Thanks to eP, this  year, I am creating five!!
 The Tim Holtz Idea-ology Burlap Panels Bare Minis were perfect for this project. I turned the two smaller ones backwards and  glued the four panels together.   Rubber bands held them in place until the adhesive set.  I painted beige lace with Splash of Color Silk Acrylic Glaze in Black Ice leaving areas of the beige showing through.

While the paint and glue were drying, I cut various pieces out of the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells papers and placed them into the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Corked Domes.  I used Ink Essentials Crackle Accents on the insert pieces to give them a vintage appearance.  I placed a skeleton rub on from the Tim Holz Remnant Rubs pack onto acrylic and carefully trimmed around the edges.

I added thin brown ribbon between the seams of the panels, added a couple of more of the rub ons and used adhesive to attach the ribbon and the assorted elements to finish the project.  This fun piece can be hung on a wall or can stand alone on a table for display.

                                 So, what are you creating for this wonderful holiday?

How clever to reverse 2 of the burlap panels to make mini shadow boxes! Great directions. Love the painted lace.
