Black & White is just right for Halloween!

Try to say that 10 times!   Seriously though, Black & White is so right for Halloween when you use it as a base.  Check out these GREAT photos by Paper Eskimo.



White is like starting with a blank canvas.  Then you add in touches of Lime Green, dark Purple and Black and you’ve just created an amazing Halloween setting.  You can also kick it up a notch by adding in a variety of patterns in Black & White.  This is really quick and easy to do.  Mix and match spooky, scary, edgy with that great White pumpkin.
