Halloween Creations

Hello dear friends, this is a very quick post today to show you some of my black and white Halloween creations. I’ve played with some wonderful vintage images from The Graphics Fairy. Thank you very much, Karen!

For this tag, I raised one arm of the skeleton, let the spider hang down and added the 31 to the top hat. The image was printed onto a book page and adhered to black cardstock.

The original image of the three bats is colored. I changed it to black and white and added corner flourishes from another image.

Here is another bat tag and a box I created a label for.

Doesn’t sound “Dried & Grated Toad Slime” just too yummy? I’m sure you’d love to try that, lol.

For this black lace pillow I printed a great vintage undertaker ad on fabric.

Hopefully you have the same fun like me, creating and decorating for Halloween. I’ll be back soon with more.

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody!

These are so cute! I love the graphic you put on the pillow...so Halloweenie, lol. I wish I had time to do some fall decorating, hopefully before Christmas decor takes over.

The pillow is my absolute favourite - fabulous creation, so wish I thought of that!
I am playing with Halloween stamps myself at the moment, such fun.

Yahoo and all these great spooky treasures are now mine:) Thank you so much sweet Julia! I already made an Apothecary shelf were amongst other things I used the fab dried & grated toad slime box in and the wonderful tags and coffin pillow are also used around it. I hope I'll get around to take photos of it soon. My cousin Stefanie who was here for a crafternoon yesterday loved it all and she was blown away by your gorgeous fabric pumpkin. She will soon try to make one too, she's lucky she can sew which I can't as you know. Love the black pumpkin in the picture too!!
Looking forward to see your latest creations!
Carola xoxo~

Everything you turn your hand to is amazing Julia!
Your Halloween creations are so tasteful - I'm not into the black and orange theme either.
Though Halloween is not a big event in NZ like it is elsewhere.
Guy Fawkes on the 5th November is a big thing!

Wishing you a very happy weekend whatever you're doing.
Much love and hugs
ps I have your giveaway things pinned on my inspiration board so I enjoy then every day! x

I agree with Roses, Lace and Brocante Julia, everything you turn your hand to is amazing. Love the tags especially x


In France we do not celebrate halloween so it is always a pleasure to me such pretty decorations.

Liebe Julia,
sehr schöne Helloween-Ideen auch die vom letzten Post.
Ich tue mich immer sehr schwer mit dem Lesen deiner Posts (hätte ich mal in der Schule im Englischunterricht besser aufgepasst, jetzt kommt die Strafe dafür).
Aber ich schau immer regelmäßig deine Posts an und wollte dir mal wieder liebste Grüße hinterlassen.
Von Herzen Tatjana

Hallo, liebste Julia,
deine Halloween-Kreationen (auch die aus dienem vorigen Post) sind wieder einmal einsame Klasse: Ungewöhnlich und sehr, sehr attraktiv!!!
Danke auch für deine lieben Zeilen zu meiner Mutter! Leider habe ich nach wie vor den Eindruck, dass es eher abwärts als aufwärts geht...
Es fühlt sich ziemlich traurig an...
Sei herzlich gedrückt - liebe Rostrosengrüße, viele Tierchenkrauler und hab noch ein schönes Restwochenende, Traude
