Halloween Aperture Picture Frame Decoration - No. 2

Following on from last week's Halloween picture frame decoration quandary, in the end I decided to go for it and use up all bits and pieces I had left, despite their lack lustre appeal ....... and I am sooooooooo glad I did!  I am thrilled! Iris and Bertie each have a special frame to remember Halloween 2019 by and ..... if I say so myself, I think I like this frame  even more than the first   ....... I think it's all about the extra colour.
Again I used one of the 6.5ins x 6.5ins black, multi aperture picture frames I found in Poundstretcher ........ 99p. 
....... and the very last (dregs) of the sticker packs I got from Lldl and Flying Tiger last year.
I removed the glass from the frame (and disposed of it carefully) and proceeded to cover the paper insert with what I thought were suitably Halloween coloured papers, I did add extra strips of different papers once  I knew which sticker was going where.
I put the frame back together and faux stitched round the edges using a black finer liner pen ....... and that's when I really went overboard putting the little scenes together in each aperture!
Although still feeling underwhelmed with what I had to work with, I have to admit I did pretty well. I put the figures in first and then added a few smaller stickers, followed by lots of tiny multi- coloured stars to fill in the gaps .........
...... and clusters of three black dots.
I also added a good measure of Ranger Glossy Accents to help make some of the stickers stand out (please excuse the still wet Accents on the pumpkins).
....... and with the little witch I doodled cobwebs to fill in the corners, and, it goes without saying, that an abundance of googly eyes was also called for.
Madness then prevailed on the frame using leftover potion bottle stickers, more coloured stars of varying sizes and little dots of  white Ranger Enamel Accents.
You can never say "less is more" for Halloween  ......
........ and on this occasion no one ever accuse me of holding back.  Happy Days!
