10 down, 2 to go!!!!

My October pages completed, so many birthday's in this month, that in the end I stopped writing them in, it would almost have been a page of cakes!!lol!
The Halloween embellishments were made with paper clay and hand painted.

 Well, this month had to have fireworks  as my theme.  2 attempts to get the background right.  I started off with Brusho, but I didn't get the depth of colour that I wanted, so back to acrylic paint, with colour sprays on top when dry.
The exploding firework shapes I cut out on my cricut, embellished with glitter glue and then sprinkled lots more glitter in various colours.
Hop along to Kates blog to see the work of others taking part in this year long challenge.
P.S   OOOOOOOPPPPPPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I posted this a day too early
