ScrapLounge October Cyber Challenge

The Scraplounge October cybercrop is based on Halloween pictures and colours. I am just so lucky as in 2008 I was in the USA during Halloween and what an event and experience it was and as a result I have some great pics. So here is what I have done.
Challenge 1 - Spooky Hollow
Was to use purple, lime green, orange and black and include a Halloween photo.
and here is a close-up showing the oddments of flowers which I painted with purple paint and the cellophane spider web which came from the packaging of the spider web in the following layouts.
Challenge 2 - Boo
Was based on the following sketch and had to include the Halloween photo again.
and this is my take on the sketch.
and here is a close-up. Note the wispy white spider web on the right.
Challenge 3 - Halloween
This challenge required you to use paint on the background. I made a mask for the title then painted around it  in black and dabbed some purple using a very sick piece of bubble wrap. I will try this technique again using a decent piece of bubble wrap next time. Check out the spider web again.
I have really enjoyed rummaging through my stash in search of papers and colours for the Halloween theme
and trying some new techniques.
Thanks for looking.

Love all your pages. Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year except here in Australia we don't celebrate it :( but one day like you i hope to go to America and experience it first hand. I love the paint drips in the first one and that spider...spooky! That title in your last one totally rocks, very eye catching. TFS your pages i am a little envious ;)
