Ths week the challenge on Ky's blog The Gesso-Dragon is "Spooky" and in honor of this time of year she challenges us to make a journal page honoring something we like about it. You can check out the challenge and the blog here.
I love Halloween and have alot of Halloween stamps I really like so decided to make a gallery page using a variety of those. The background is craft acrylics. The pieces are on a variety of card stock and watercolor paper. I stamped and cut out images and framed them. Drew the spider webs on and stamped the spiders as well as some of the gallery attendes in white ink.
The Spooky Gallery banner was attached with silver skull brads - love these! The words "The Spooky Gallery" were printed out from a Word document on cardstock. The background was colored with watercolor pencils and water was dripped down the page for the subtle black drips.
The larger skulls at the bottom of the banner are clay masks made by a local artist. Oh wait, that was my imagination running away with me, actually I cut them out of scrapbook paper. But wouldn't they be cool clay masks?
This page was alot of fun to make and it was alot of fun to get all my Halloween stamps out and look through them. I got alot more...may have to do another Halloween project!
Thanks Ky for hosting the challenge!
