Happy Halloween :)
Hope you get lots of Trick or Treaters tonight.
Here is my treat, as I don't like to trick.
Caroline and I have resumed our monthly Art Journal Challenges.
This months challenge was to do a Halloween theme and/or collage.
If adhering the fence, bat and word strips is collage, then I succeeded in doing both…but I am guessing mine is more just on the Halloween theme :)
Fist thing I did was use some mists and sprayed the yellow/orange colour for the moon. I also added a bit of white on there as well.
Then to do the purple sky.
I was to lazy to pull out my Cricut to cut the perfect sized circle I wanted.
So I ran upstairs and grabbed a saucer…worked great!
It washed off nicely as well.
The only problem is that when I pulled the plate away, I got 2 streaks on the moon…no biggie, I actually like it and couldn't have planned it that if I wanted.
But…as I moved the plate, a drop of ink fell on the moon, that also wasn't planned and I wasn't as happy about it.
I then stamped my images with black ink and then coloured them with black markers, as I wanted them in silhouette.
These Stampin' Up images of the children were not dressed up for Halloween, so I helped them along.
I drew the horns and tail for the devil boy, the crown for the princess and the tiara and wand for the fairy :)
I used this Unity Angiegirl stamp as is and just coloured the witch and cat in with a black marker
Next I added the fence and some grass.
These were both done with border punches.
At first I was going to write these lyrics out by hand….then I came to my senses and used the computer.
These lyrics are from the movie "Hocus Pocus".
I inked them with a bit of distress ink and adhered them on :)
As easy as this page was to do…I did have some technical difficulties….but I will give you the illusion that everything went perfectly, teehee.
But if you really want to hear how it all really went down, you can check out my video :)

I hope you all have a very Happy Halloween.
