YT Series 13 Projects of Halloween


RIP Rosalie (1) WM

So here is the first project uploaded for this series I decided to do. I couldn’t commit to ‘InkTober’ and when I heard YTuber Mixed Media Jenn mention she was doing 13 days of Halloween, I thought sure I will, too.

I show how I made the background paper in the top picture and show my process from start to finish

It is a bit lengthy but I decided to keep it in real time with me explaining and sharing as I go helpful hints for new paper crafters and/or advanced makers. Sped up videos with voice overs so far for me I seem to loose sharing some of these tips. Plus I figure the viewer can always go under the settings and speed it up themselves I they like.
