Authentique Enchanted Fun

Last month, I was asked to design with Authentique's Enchanted line for my monthly In House Design Team projects. If you know me, you know I LOVE Halloween. I had so much fun!!! I absolutely LOVE the Enchanted line that Authentique designed. Simply stunning!!! Here are the items I designed and are now displayed at The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL:

First up is a 12x12 Canvas with a fun Halloween quote.


Steps to complete:
  1. Paint top of entire canvas with Claudine Hellmuth Black Gesso. While you are painting - slip some torn pieces of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper into the mix. When the paint dries, there will be great texture from the tissue paper.
  2. Use the Tim Holt Pumpkin Jack die and your Vagabond to cut out a pumpkin using the Authentique Enchanted "Haunted" paper. The stem cuts with the pumpkin. The stem is just the flip side of the pumpkin paper.
  3. Ink edges of pumpkin with Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.
  4. Ink stem with Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
  5. Heat emboss top of pumpkin using Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink and UTEE. While it is melted, but still liquid and HOT, sprink a little glitter on pumpkin. Let cool.
  6. Cut out all letters in white cardstock using Tim Holtz Word Play Die. Ink edges of letters with Ripe Persimmon.
  7. Adhere some Halloween Washi tape to the edge of the canvas in three places.
  8. Distress edges of black canvas with White Gesso.
  9. Paint edge of 12x12 canvas with Golden's Acrylic Cadmium Orange. Add more to top to distress edges like the white gesso.
  10. Use Helmar's 450 Quick Dry to adhere Pumpkin, Cat, and quote to canvas.
  11. Spray entire canvas Clear Acrylic to protect it.
I also made the following items, but do not have detailed instructions for each of them. They all use the wonderful Authentique Enchanted line.
