For this version, I started with the Brushstrokes application using the W4 preset. I then added texture with the Bella preset in the DistressedFX app. I finished in the Formulas app using the dry ice preset at 45% and worn map border.

Last night I attending the opening night of the Nights of the Jack Halloween Show at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas. The half-mile trail features endless lighted displays of jack o'lanterns and related Halloween themed displays. Great event! Really worth a visit. Also it's 25% off this weekend.
At the end of the evening I found myself watching artist Roberto Velasco carving a pumpkin. He placed the face of actor Joaquin Phoenix from the movie "Joker" on a pumpkin.
