Beth and I are hosting an online class to teach you a number of projects, all with a dark and mysterious Halloween theme. A romantically beautiful Halloween filled with broken hearted ghosts. All done in sepia, neutrals, black, and white. Not a bit of orange to be seen.
These will be subtle Halloween decorations. Like this burlap tote made by Beth. The image is of Edgar Allen Poe's sister, not a ghoul with fangs, or a cheery orange pumpkin. We are going for a Halloween season filled with the kind of images we remember from watching Dark Shadows and reading Jane Eyre.
I even found sheet music for a song called "Dark Shadows" and used it as a background for this Gothic arch that is part of a banner.
After sifting through my collection of vintage images, I found a good selection of ladies to scan for you. Each is presented two ways, one is as she appears in the ephemera. A second way, has been edited for a more glowing, ghostly look.
Many of the backgrounds I am providing are offered to you in sepia, or black and white. There will be extra images and options so that you can branch out and make the creations just your own, or detailed instructions are included if you want to recreate them just as they are. Either way, you'll have plenty of extra images to play with and use in other projects too!
We will offer a variety of projects, with 12 days of instructions, lots of pictures, a few quick videos, short cuts, tips and tricks. What's Halloween without a few tricks? But don't worry, these projects will be a real treat to the eyes.
I hope you'll join us!
