    Halloween Banners & House Shrines & Dresden, oh my!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Halloween, Kristin Batsel, Pierrot/Harlequin/Carnival, Sale

    Before I show off Design Team Member Kristin Batsel’s new artwork, here’s a fun Halloween banner that she made a couple years ago — with the Black Triangular Chipboard Banner Pennants that are back in stock! Those black pennants are in stock in TWO sizes — and they are on sale at 30% off! More info about Kristin’s Spooky Halloween Banner is in the blog and/or see the supply list.

     
    Circus Town by Kristin Batsel!

    I love these little circus shrines!

    I just brought back the 4 sizes of Mini House Shadowboxes — Kristin shows a great way to use the large and small version of the same shape in her project. (Those 2 links are for the chunkier houses from the series; Kristin also used the slightly slimmer Tiny Little Shadowbox Houses #3 — 2 of them of her array of 5… see the wide photo below for all 5.)

    We had discontinued the “mini” size… as you guys like the tiniest version of everything! But all 4 are now back on the site!

    And Kristin used the tiny circus prints in the Greatest Show 6×6 Paper Pad beautifully (of course: Kristin loves the circus theme)! The little stripes (and stripes with dots) are perfect for using as borders around the front edges of the houses. (And there are 2 larger paper pads in that line, too, in case you want more options.)

    Here’s a bit of the intro from Kristin’s blog post:

    A friend of mine recently introduced me to feves, and I’m not sure how I feel about that; once I saw them, I had to purchase some. If you are unfamiliar with feves, they are small trinkets hidden in a king cake or similar dessert. You know, like the plastic babies you can buy at the party store. BUT, the feves my friend introduced to me are no plastic babies: they are porcelain feves from France. There are all sorts of feves to be found on etsy: animals, kitchen accessories, and cartoon characters, just to name a few. I found a set that is circus themed and it was all over. They are mine.

    Of course I need a way to display them, so I looked to Alpha Stamps and found the cutest little houses, perfect to make a circus town! They also had the perfect paper needed to decorate the houses: “The Greatest Show” 6×6 Pad. It’s gorgeous! I had fun mixing and matching the papers on each of the houses. For scale, the tallest house in the center is 3-1/4″ tall, minus the flag.
