Twisted Sketches Reveal -Frightful Fun- Sketch #126 Twist Feather

It is my week to do a layout using the Twisted Sketches fabulous Sketch #126 with the Twist Feather! If you are like me and love a great sketch every once in a while to inspire you to create, then head over to for some of the best sketches around.

The following is my take on the sketch, and features a photo from just a couple of weeks ago of my son and some of his friends at the Ruby Falls Haunted Cavern. They had a blast, and I just had to scrap the fun group photo of Draven and the gang. BTW Draven is the one on your far left. I used my beyond gorgeous Scraps Of Darkness October Kit-All Hallows' Eve and just loved using all the spooky elements of this kit!

I started with some of the Fancy Pants kit pp and then added a piece of pp from my stash that I cut the center out of and just used the frame part to create that haunted house look. I cut out some of the apothecary bottles from the Moxie kit pp and misted them with different colors of mist, and then adhered them down the side of the frame with foam tape for dimension.
 I then took a piece  of pp from this month's Paper Add On and punched it then mounted the photo of my teen age spooks onto it. Pulled a large bat off of a Prima piece that was in the Flora & Fauna add on, and popped it at the top of the photo.  I took the die cut pp from the kit cut it in half, and smooched it with some teal smooch to tie in with the pp behind the photo.
Next I took a Dusty Attic Fence piece and painted it with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint. I then took some of the  Moxie pp from the kit, cut out some of the little tombstones, stickled some blood onto some of them, used some of the Kaisercraft rub ons from the Romance Kit and applied those to some of the tombstones. I attached them with foam tape layered to give them different dimension and then popped on some of the Prima Printery Flowers from last months kit. I then wrote some cute Halloween sayings onto them in Sharpie.

I took a photo of Draven with the big scary monster who was out front of the Haunted cavern and framed it in one of the Acetate Frames that came with the kit. I also added a little Smooch to the frame just to add a little color.

I then created a fun Spook House style title by taking one of the Moxie Cut Outs from the Romance add on and layering it onto some pp, then adding some of the Kaisercraft Gems from the kit. I took some of the Pink Paislee Alphas from the kit, stickled the edges and adhered them with foam tape for dimension. To complete the Twist for this month, I took a large white feather and arched it over my title, and then took a tiny orange feather popped that on and then took the Prima Bat Vine from the Flora & Fauna add on, pulled off one of the bats and popped it onto my sign.

I loved watching my son and his friends get together and have a Frightful Fun time! Thanks for letting me share this fun memory with you! ~Renea
