Fall and Halloween projects

It has been very windy and we've had rain on and off for most of the day. A perfect day to stay in and create some art.
Before starting any art projects this morning, I put a Boston Butt pork roast in the crock pot. We will be having pulled pork for supper tonight. The smells coming from the crock pot are wonderful.

Here is my first project for the day.  Decoupaged 6 x 9 Clipboard  in a fall theme using napkins. The words Fall Colors were rubber stamped.

Next, I decided to paint an oval box black. When the paint dried I glued ribbon around the lid. Then I cut out a piece of scrapbook paper and glued that to the top of the lid. I didn't know what to use for a decoration on the lid and finally decided on a sticker with the face of  a victorian woman that changes into a skeleton face. I found the stickers on sale at Michael's. There were 4 stickers in a package, and the company that made them is Recollections. They can be found in with the Halloween things. I believe they are still on sale this week. Anyway, I thought they were pretty neat.
