Halloween on My Mind

Hi everyone. Short post today since I only have a little time before I need to get ready and out the door for work.
I like to play around with Halloween images in my Giant Halloween Journal that I have been working on for several years now. One of these days I will fill it up, but it is fun to see year to year where my style is.
So Try It On Tuesdays new theme is Halloween, and I recently made this collage page in my journal. I figured I might as well link up.
I started by stenciling the spider webs. The blue streaks are actually pieces of  a skin I recently was playing around with. In this photo they look pretty flat but on the page they are shiny and really stand out.  Then I added this foam spider web that came from a little package I picked up at a local crafts store. I drew, painted and decorated the big spider. The vulture is a die cut that I had in my stash; they eyes are stamped on white tissue and then finally I added the spider and the poison word stickers.
We're starting to cool down today and feel more like October is suppose to be. I'm excited. Yesterday it was hot and humid and it was a touch day at work. No one wanted to do anything. Hopefully the kids will have a little more ambition today. Me too!
Thanks for visiting.

The vulture is a nice touch! I'd never have thought of it, but it's definitely suitable for a Halloween "feel". A spider! eeeek!

I always love seeing your Halloween journal. I remember you have shown pictures of it before. This one is really different and clever. I think that spider is wonderful. Have a great cool down day.

Layers and layers of cobwebs - could there be anything spookier? Especially when they get caught in your hair! Fab page.
