Old Lace, Hambly Screen Prints

Make it spooky: Notice how the lovely gold lace printed transparency that Kelly Purkey chose for this layout looks both pretty and spooky when paired with the web and text prints. Follow Kelly's lead and pair graceful, formal transparencies with eerie elements on your layout.

Bonus tip: Make spider web patterned paper extra fun by cutting out inside portions of the web design using a craft knife. For best results, start in the middle of the web and work your way towards the outside edges.
