31 Days of Halloween - Day 10

to Lyneen's Day 10 of the 
Smeared and Smudged 
31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!
Luminaries for Halloween
During the month of October I am participating in a month-long blog hop with some amazing artists.  Everyday you will find a new Halloween project on all of the blogs listed below.  Each project must have stamping on it, be it digi or ink. There are prizes to win, be sure to check out all the rules HERE and information. There is a daily scavenger hunt, you must go HERE to find the clue/s for the item/s you are looking for in the scavenger hunt.  To find the previous day winners go HERE.  Have fun and Good Luck!

Now for my "SIMPLE" project - At night my neighborhood is sort of dark! On Halloween night when all the ghosts and goblins are "Trick Or Treating" I like line my drive way with paper bag luminaries to help guide them up the walkway.  Me, I can't have just any old bag... they need to be fun.  This year I decided to use my Dylusion stamps and create some nice and some spooky.

Pictured are four of the ten that will be lining the walkway.  You can draw them free hand or stamp them.  This is a great project to involve children!

Use white bags, spritz them on the side without the seam,  set them aside to dry.  Once dry you can stamp (or draw) on the bags.   This year I added a little bit of color to them with my distress Markers.

I like to leave these simple just the stamping and a little color so the light will shine through! These would be great for any holiday party!

Dylusion Stamps from Altered Pages
Dylusion Spray Mist - Orange
White Paper bags
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Battery operated Tea Lights.

Here they are pictured using a flash, you can see their true colors.  I like them better in the dark!!!
