Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone, I hope the Goblins & Ghosts don't 'come to get you' :)    We will enjoy watching the little ones dressed up and 'trick or treating' tonight.  My husband hopes that we don't run out of candy because he wants to eat lots of 'left overs'.

I have a Journal Page to show today that is a little different, but since it's Halloween colours I thought I would post it.   As Ryn advised, creating in your Art Journal should be free and spontaneous :)

I used Design by Ryn's new Fiddle Head Set along with her famous Water Droplets.

I also used favorite stamps from Chocolate Baroque.   I created texture in the background with a fragment from Texture Fragments, 'Art' is from Artistic Expressions and the sentiment is from Artistic Affirmations.   


The background is Dylusions Inks, I also added a little Distress Ink after it was dry.   I stamped with black ink and highlighted with a white Gelly Roll Pen.   The border is TCW-Chequered Dots Dylusions Stencil which I added with black Acrylic Paint.   I also used TCW-Ferns which is hard to see  and a solid leaf stamp by IO - Hydrangea Leaf H8466 in the background.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day,
Shirley

Wow an amazing page Shirley, I love the bright colours you've used. The fiddlehead stamp highlighted with the white looks so good, and the textures are so subtle they are there, without being there. About time I did another in mine!!! Have a great evening.

This red has got to be my fav of the Dylusions colors. It's lovely on this piece with all your added touches. I can pick out the fern stencil, it's very subtle. But yet that draws the eye in once again, as one looks for all the added detail. Great use of the droplets too! Lovely. TFS
