Well, at the risk of sounding like a Luddite, I think I just figured out how to best upload my photos from my camera so that they are large and visible!  I am sure there has to be an easier way than my convoluted process, but with this post, I think I have figured an improvement for now!  (Where is Santa and that digital camera?)

So this past week in Seattle we were surrounded by a thick fog rolling off the Sound, perfect for these darkening days of autumn.  Through a complete accident of experimentation, I was able to capture the kind of foggy, gauzy moonlight that sifts through a thick forest on an October evening when the moon is full.  Using my Crafter’s Workshop birch stencil and some Unicorn White with a foam applicator, I brushed the ink on Amuse Studio’s Slate paper.  Because I have made a window with American Crafts Crate Paper Photo Overlays, the effect has been muted, but I love that I was finally able to find a use for these overlays.
The sequins and stars are from American Crafts as well.

Waltzingmouse Stamps has provided this haunting, finger-wagging witch & the sentiment is another fabulous Memory Box creation.  I love how Memento’s Tuxedo black ink represents on this slate paper!

All dies are from Spellbinders.

I will leave you with a fine poem befitting the week and my little corner of the world!

Fog, by Carl Sandburg

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
May something wooly and wonderful embrace you this week!
Head over to Simon Says Stamp for some inspiration!

Ooh, ooh, she’s got stars in her eyes and all across the sky as she rides this October night!  I just love this October Afternoon paper & the little lady whose silhouette reminds me of Samantha on Bewitched!

I layered several papers from the collection,  used one of the papers as my background, and brought back my Lifestyle Crafts cauldron.   Bubbly embellishments are from American Crafts.

I love this Memory Box stamp which came with a little coordinating bubbling potion bottle.
