Scrap 'N Stamp Freaky Friday Blog Hop!

Hello! I'm so excited to be part of the Scrap 'N Stamp Freaky Friday Blog Hop featuring the Tim Holtz Ancestors Paper Dolls!! All the talented ladies on the hop are working with this fantastic paper doll ephemera pack - and you won't believe all the wonderful and different ways we've all come up with to use them! If you've arrived here from Tara at the Scrap 'N Stamp blog, you're in the right place.
Seeing as it's getting close to Halloween I simply had to make something a little spooky, but these are definitely not just for Halloween! There are so many neat images that would work perfectly on any project, for any occasion.  For my project today I've created this cool mixed media coffin. I thought this diecut of the children in their halloween costumes was perfect for the front of this project! I've included a short tutorial below showing you the steps I used to create it. I love all the inky details πŸ–€πŸ•·πŸ•ΈπŸ–€

Inside, we've got several layers of these little guys - I love the way some of the figures in the pack are sitting so I could perch the boy on top of the calendar! One of the great things is you get so many pieces in the Ancestor pack, in so many different sizes - so don't be scared to use them!

I've got a quick little tutorial on the steps I used to create this project:

 And here's a look at all the spooky details! 

Supplies used:
Coffin - Dollar Store
Black Paint - Dylusions
Mists & Naturally Aged Weathered Bronze Kit - Tattered Angels
