There's a great new theme at Try It On Tuesday. Its Scary and Spooky.
I've been working on a Halloween journal for the last couple of years. I work on it in season, when I feel inspired, and then it gets put away until the next year. On this page I played with a couple of monster stencils I found on a mark down table. I also did a bit of stamping. And collaging of tissue paper and playing with paint.
Here's another page . This one I made last year, and then recently went back to and did some revising. I added the paper ephemera in the glasses and outlined the flowers. I think it really changed up the page and made it a little spookier because the eyes look so real.
The rest of this page is hand drawn/painted on a Gelli print. Except for the stamped little skeletons on the bottom and the Boo die cut on the top.
What I love about this journal is that is is a BIG old coffee table book-18 x 12 inches. I can do a lot on such a big page.
I need to keep my eyes open to find another book this size so I can add in some of "regular" lose art journal pages that I have. My pile is getting a bit high and it is time to neaten up the happy place which is a major mess right now.
Auuuugh. But I do love a little mess in my happy place. Somehow, all those things I need to put away are out for me to use and are inspiring.
Hope you are inspired by today.
I'm g;ad you stopped by to visit.
