A Thrilling Full Moon

It's a THRILLING time at Authentique Paper this week!
We've teamed up with Basically Bare and Art Anthology to create some really
cool Halloween/Fall themed projects.
When I received the product for this swap and saw the "Mayan Gold" Dimensional Paint
 by Art Anthology, I knew that I wanted to create a full moon as a backdrop for a Halloween collage.
  At first I didn't know how well or how much the paint would cover the Thrilling paper,
 but it worked out even better than I had hoped!

 To begin, I started with a 10X10 canvas frame. 
Using the Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology,
 I painted the sides and about a 1" perimeter on the front of the canvas. 
The paint provides great coverage and has a hint of sparkle too it.

For the moon, I cut a 7.5" circle from the Antidote patterned paper and then painted on
 one layer of Mayan Road Dimensional Paint.  After the piece was completely dry, I adhered
 it to the same size chipboard and then machine-stitched around the perimeter.  Next, I gave a
 light spray to the moon using the Raider Colorations Spray.  Before attaching to the prepared
 canvas, I glued on a trim of golden yellow pom pom trim by May Arts.  

After adding the layers of cut-out papers and the cute Halloween motif, I attached a "happy"
 banner using Basically Bare's chipboard banners that I covered in Frenzy paper.
 The sticker letters are also from the Thrilling Collection. 

To the top, the sticker alone just wasn't enough so I added one of the black chipboard pieces
 from Basically Bare's Jailer Keys set.  A little turquoise straw picks up the blue in the
postcard picture and a nice ribbon bow completes the collage.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
