We're getting ready for Halloween inspiration overload by combining our Pin Spin feature and the Bloom Collection by Jamie Dougherty today! What a perfect combination for creating a unique, and beautiful, piece for your holiday decor. We asked two of our experts to choose a Pin from Pinterest that they loved, then use it as a jumping-off point with the Catrina Bloom Girl. Want to see what these talented gals came up with?
"I simply love this image from Pinterest I chose to use for my Pin Spin. So what inspired me; the colours, that beautiful rose flower, the paint runs and splats in the background, and her face reminded me of the Bloom Girl stamp, Catrina." ~ Joanne Bain
"I really love the Bloom Girl "Catrina" stamp! It really is perfect for Halloween-inspired pages and I couldn't wait to create with it."
"Halloween isn't really that big over here in Australia, so I chose to do a Halloween-inspired page in non-traditional colours." Hint - Apply paint with a syringe, it gives perfect and precise paint runs every time. :)"

"We don’t celebrate Halloween much here in Finland. There might be some trick and treating, but it’s more a harvest-fest here, if anything. But, not so long ago, I watched this really inspiring movie called, “The Book of Life”, and fell in love with the aesthetics of the Dia de los muertos." ~ Riikka Kovasin
"So I chose a Pinterest pin of one of the characters for my inspiration and turned Bloom Girls "Catrina" into a sugar skull painted La Muerte; then adorned a wreath with her. You might also notice that I colored the doll flowers in the sugar-skull style with Prima's Palette Markers!" Pin: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/459648705697844283/
