I am using my iPad to post my tag as I have lost internet connection on my computer. The trouble is, I'm not sure how to link. Can I just request you go to Tims blog for all the details because believe me, this months tag is fabulous. I cannot believe that he keeps showing us a technique every month that makes you rush to your stash and have  a go. For me this time it was the background. It is stunning.
#timholtz you rock.
Here is my effort.
I used the mini blueprints pumpkin being the only one I have, but the technique worked just fine in miniature! I also had to improvise with the foiling. After watching Tim live on Periscope these last couple of nights, he mentioned that the foiling would only work properly with the Ranger items. He had tried other foils but the glue stick was only compatible with their product. I only have some metal foil in jars which works perfectly with red tape but I can tell you, that it isn't very good with the Ranger glue stick so I used a mixture of that and a tape runner. It's lovely actually. 
Well, if I figure out how to link this to Tims blog I will be happy because I have taken part almost for the whole of the 12 tags years. Please let me sort it out.

The pumpkin goes on the door step tonight
A witchy broom stick door wreath.
Obviously my apothecary had an airing.
Spooky eyes.

I found some old cutlery at Totnes Saturday market some time ago and following my Finnabair workshop last Saturday (OMG, was that really a whole week ago???!!!), I had a little play during very late and very early hours of the day. This is the result.
It's 10" X 8" in size. The photo doesn't really show the amazing colour effect but overall, I'm happy with it.

Ever heard of Anna Dabrowska? She is more familiarly known as Finnabair. 
I was lucky to attend a weekend of workshops with her last year and some of you will already know how much I thoroughly enjoyed those _ journals??!!
Yesterday I went to another of her classes titled Artifacts and came away with the biggest grin ever, oh! And this
In real life it is full of texture and techniques. It is the best thing I have ever made by far.
The classes there today are the last at the Wynyard venue - boo! - but the next ones are already booked at a super new venue - hooray!
I look forward to being able to have more happy days crafting with the best workshop organiser in the world namely Sue Tucker.

All Tim's details of this month's tag can be found here. I love Halloween. The gruesome costumes, the decorations, but most of all, I get to think like a child for one fun filled day and out comes my apothecary, the non scary plastic spiders and best of all, we decorate up a little bit incase any kiddies do call round. We are at home this year so this will all happen outside in the garden plus I've already made my door wreath from a witch's broom! I have a few of Tim's Halloween stamps and dies but again, not the ones he's used so improvisation was the name of the game once more. I made my backgrounds and then stamped onto them, cut them out and layered them up.
I used salvage stickers to cover the base tag as I don't have Halloween papers. She is an ugly old witch and must be the sister of one of my spooky decorations!!!
HaHaHa! Have fun making your tag just like me.
