Hi! I'm sharing a comic book style scrapbook layout featuring my child and their friend dressed up as The Joker and Batman for Halloween last year for Creative Embellishments today. I used the Super Awesome collection from Memory Place/Asuka Studios and some fun bat-themed products from the Creative Embellishments Shop.
The city scene printed along the bottom of the patterned paper was giving me Gotham City vibes, so I decided to add a bat signal to the skyline. I used one ray of a sunburst stencil from my stash with yellow dye ink to add the beam to the night sky. I placed the stenciled beam in the middle of the concentric circle moon, which was already part of the paper design. Then, I used black dye ink with the Going Batty Stencil to add a bat to the top of the beam.
The Joker always seems to be laughing, so I added a LOL! journaling card behind the picture. I painted a wood veneer bat from the Going Batty Set black and secured it to the top of the photo. If you prefer chipboard over wood veneer, there is a similar Bats Set cut from chipboard. The patterned paper had some distressed black dots in several areas. I added more with the retired Distressed Circles Stamp.
I finished the layout with a long puffy sticker title that I outlined with a black pen to help the letters stand out from the busy background print. What are your kids dressing up as for Halloween this year?
