I mentioned in my last post that I am not really a fan of the Halloween malarkey. Nothing against it other than it does not float my boat.
So, thinking of ways to create the feel without the relevant images.
First, in my trusty Girls journal from the 1940's, I gessoed the page and then painted a layer of PA fresco grey paint over it. Think that I used Elephant, which is now probably replaced by another similar grey. I wanted to create an air of drama, so, I sprayed some Hickory Smoke and Pumice Stone onto my craft mat and watered them a little and dropped my page onto it to create the Wrinkle Free Distress effect.
I cut out a white circle for the moon and added a little Hickory Smoke ink to create some shadows.
Next, using Watering Can Archival and Black Archival Inks, I stamped some Fir trees in the distance.
I hand drew a tree and painted it and the birds with Paperartsy fresco Little Black Dress and highlighted the trunk with my white Uni Ball pen.
To finish, I drew a pumpkin onto orange card and added features and the very last thing was to draw pairs of eyes in the woods......OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....Spooky!
