Fun Halloween Layout On Acrylic Tutorial

I'm up on the Graphic 45 blog today with this tutorial.

Here's a fun layout that's really quick and easy to make. It's created on a sheet of clear acrylic which gives it a different feel. I made this as a store decor for my local scrapbooking store, PaperMarket. But the idea can easily be adapted into a Halloween decor for your home by changing the words to something along the lines of A Witching Welcome! Or you could just adhere your favourite Halloween photograph onto it for a Halloween layout.

Let's begin.

1. What you'll need is some Happy Haunting papers and a clear sheet of acrylic. Mine measures 12x6 inches.

2. Cut a sheet of Bewitched paper into 6x5 inches. Tear the paper into two in a curvy line. Attach it to the top and bottom of the acrylic as shown.

3. Cut a sheet of Word Play paper into 6x4 inches. Tear that into 2 in a random curvy manner and adhere it to the top and bottom of the acrylic, under the Bewitched papers.

4. Select a few of your favourite images from the Happy Haunting papers and cut them out. You'll have a whale of a time doing this as there are so many images to choose from in this collection. Here's what I used.

5. Stick these images to your layout, using 3D foam dots for more dimension.

6. Add on your greetings or photograph and you're done.

Here's another layout I created using the same method:
