Hello! Tina Walker here today with my latest StencilGirl® Collaboration Column post!
In celebration of my favorite holiday of the year - HALLOWEEN - we are bringing you dimensional, trendy, and totally cool projects. We are using a 3-D, rolodex inspired idea, which we call 'in(DEX)ed', and stencil-fying it! I can't believe this is my first StencilGirl® Halloween themed collaboration, but I am positive, you will love it!
The concept of in(DEX)ed was born from a collaborative think-tank session with my dear friend DeeDee Catron, owner of UmWowStudio. We wanted a 3 - D approach to journaling combined with the trendy rolodex card and icad challenges. in(DEX)ed is the perfect platform for creating super cool, creepy, and wicked Halloween dimensional art - so I thought it would be fun to do a collaboration with it.
Each participant received a range of in(DEX)ed core products + a variety of other Halloween chipboard. They were allowed to create any halloween themed projects, using a variety of stencils + whatever they may have in their stash.
Let's check out these ONE OF A KIND, INCREDIBLY CREEPY, and FANTASTICALLY GHOULISH TRAYS!
(please click each name to see more pictures, close-ups, and details of each tray)
You do not want to miss it!
WOW, and Black & White WOW!!! This is such a striking in(DEX)ed
tray and I love the stark contrast of the black and white.
I am totally obsessed with Megan's color use. The colors are non-traditional Halloween, and I freakin' love it!
I am a long time fan of DeeDee's clean aesthetic (it's SO GOOD) way of making, as well as her neutral color palette. Both really draw you in for a closer look.
Michele's tray is giving me all the halloween-y feels! ♥♥♥ The bats on the moon? Oh Yes!!!
tray is SO Halloween, and I LOVE it! When I think Halloween, these are
the memories I have. And check out the witch! Simply divine!
only is Tracy's cards spooky, her tray is outta this world! (or should
I say outta this cemetery?) LOL. Really loving her bright green and
orange color palette.
I am in complete awe of Ann's indexed tray. It is so striking, beautiful, and unique! It has such a vintage, retro vibe, but fresh at the same time. In love!!
Aren't they the spookiest, creepiest, and most amazing Halloween projects? I love them all! Can you image one of these trays with Christmas themed cards? Oh my! I might have to add that to my list of to-makes!
Before we go, let's take a look at my Hallo(DEX)ween tray. I used a new, unique, and one-of-a-kind tray, we call 'the double-wide', just for this project. (If you scroll up and check out DeeDee's again, you'll notice she used the double-wide as well. We developed this new tray especially for our in(DEX)ed kit, and I just had to use it for my StencilGirl® Halloween Tray.
I'll share close-ups of some of my favorite cards.
and some of the special trays I created.
For this tray, I custom-made a dimension 'window' using a modeling paste on vellum, and 2 zombie chipboard pieces inside. I placed a mini light inside the 'window' for a night-time, spooky look.
This card features another custom-made 'mini book', using stenciled gelli prints for the pages.
My last special card is another book. I call this a flip book and it is so versatile. Inside is a stenciled image (using watercolors), and embellished with fabric. This is one of my favorite cards in the entire tray.
And my finished Hallo(DEX)ween tray!
A made a short video flip-through as well, so you can see the luscious dimension and each piece up close and personal.
