Day 15 of the 31 Days of Halloween

It's the middle of the night here and instead of tossing and turning, I'm going to tell you about my day 15 project. I had something in mind to do with a little wooden picture frame (the original idea is completely gone) but when I got out my box of picture frames I saw these beauties. Pam had given them to me either for Christmas or my birthday and didn't they look just like Halloween. The other part of my inspiration was several things I had seen here that reminded me of quilts. I cannot think of what this pattern is called where you piece strips and slice them apart and slide them around and put them back together but I did it with some of my Halloween papers and then mounted  skellie heads from Stamp Camp onto those little paper quilts.

.
I'm finding the breezeway has a little more light on cloudy days than the studio unless I take my pictures before the cats are out of the garage and can just raise the studio door (also a garage but attached to the house) and that's where the brick wall comes from. I know, I'm being a little too chatty but I'm not sleepy yet!!

Absolutely Fabulous! I love the quilted look of the paper strips! The bright Halloween colors look great against the dark frames and really makes the black and white stamped images pop. All three framed pieces look awesome!

Yes, your frames do look Halloween'ie. And I think you totally rocked out your project! I do not have patients for making paper quilts. But I totally love yours, and I think you did a terrific job on it. Cool looking skull stamps on top!
Peace,
