Now onto my Trick or Treat Bag, and even a little something extra!!
I absolutely LOVE the image of Glenda flying on an airplane cut from Goblin Gazette.  I am always attracted to all the wonderful vintage black and white advertisement images G45 creates!  They are perfect with any papers or colors, and add such a dramatic effect!
Also with the release of the Magic of OZ stamps, I didn't want to completely cover my bag with paper.  So instead I stamped the word wicked all over and lightly inked the bag in oranges and teals. 
The Imaginarium chipboard frame was something that I remembered last minute, and couldn't have been more perfect! 

LOVE this little saying too!  So cute combined with Glenda on her airplane!!
 Graphic 45 is so inspiring!!!
Supplies Used:
Graphic 45 Papers:
G45 Magic Of Oz Line: Goblin Gazette, Magic Of Oz, Scatterbrained Scarecrow

Also in the excitement of the season I decided to create a Steampunk Masquerade mask,
as well as my very first video tutorial that I am super excited to share with you!!

This mask was created out of heavy chipboard.  Drawn then cut out with a razor knife.  Covered in a layer of tissue paper using another one of my aging techniques(see video below). 
Smaller mask was drawn onto Le Romantique's Celebration paper, cut out and layered over top. 

The wonderful Fleur De Li at the top is a left over from our Want 2 Scrap blog hop, and don't forget all the sparkly bling!  LOVE leftovers!!
For the handle, I used a 1/4" dowel rod, painted it black, covered it with Rusty Hinge Distress Stickles and adhered ribbon around it using Scor Tape. 
At the bottom I attached a small wooden bead with a decorative stick pin! 

And now I would like to share with you my very first technique video! YAY!!
  Last month I shared a creepy aging technique using gesso and the response was incredible!  I had a lot of people asking if it would work well for altered books? 
Well this technique is great for creating a rough, yet flexible and leathery feeling surface absolutely perfect for books! Or "bat" Masks.. Super simple to do in only 2 easy steps, all it takes is a little tissue paper, a paint brush and some  acrylic paints!!

It's great to see a "lighter" version of a gift bag. All the other Wiz bags have been on the dark side. Beautiful job! I love Glinda on the airplane too!
