Halloween is almost here. Can you believe it? I love this "holiday" with all it's fun and/or spookiness. Last night I actually sat down and worked on a journal page and this is what I came up with ....I'm not to keen on my hand writing with the acrylic paint but trial and error, right? (The paper clips are to hold the page down since it's still curling up a bit.)

I used acrylic paint (green is Neon Green), added translucent embossing paste for the moon to add texture and depth. The witch, moon, tree, and graveyard are Tim Holtz dies. Glimmer Mist Haunted Shadows for a night sky/stars effect. The witch is covered in Black Magic embossing powder (Sparkle N Sprinkle - my old Design Team), Skellies are Deadbeat Design.

I really like the look of the witch with the embossing powder. Looks better in person. 

I embossed the tree after adding gesso and some acrylic paint and distress stain. Love the old, creepy look of it. 

I'm submitting this into the following challenges:

  9. This page is so stunning! The green that you chose was absolutely perfect to convey that creepy hazy Halloween vibe, yet this piece is still so elegant! The witch silhouette made me smile, as did the line of dancing skeletons. That texture that you added to the tree was incredible! So much talent here and I really feel inspired.
