I knew I wanted to use the design in the background, but I didn't want to make it the full background of the layout. So I decided to cut a large star design from White cardstock, and then added The Midnight Hour cut file behind it. I also layered a subtle patterned paper behind the cut file, to complete the look. And I can't have a layout without machine stitching, so I stitched around the large star shape.
I also thought it would be fun to tilt my photo, title and embellishments to flow with the tilt of the large star shape. I used a mix of Crate Paper collections, including After Dark and Gather. Sounds like an odd combo, but the designs on the Gather patterned papers were generic enough to fit right in with the embellishments from the After Dark collection.
I finished the layout with a few Happy Halloween wood veneers, that are also available in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store. And I splattered a bit of Black Color Shine over the layout, to tie everything together!
