I don't have much with Halloween but I remembered having a digital scrapkit in a Halloween theme, called Welcome to my Nightmare, so I decided to give this challenge a try.
My Spiderwick journal seemed to be the perfect background for a Halloween page.
It is a big size journal, 12x12 inch and I even decided to do a spread..so my page was 24x12 inch (60x30cm).
This is what my pages looked like, before I started with the gesso and paint:
(sorry for the reflection of the flashlight...)
And this is what my pages looked like after painting and collaging:
I tried to use the pictures that were already on the pages and added some more printed pictures from my digital scrapkit.
The spider in the little brown envelope was already there. I added the bats, looking if they came out of the envelop.
For the journaling I downloaded a free font, printed the letters and cut them out.
I painted the blooddrips and drew a spiderweb with my markers.
And do you remember this:
I kept looking at it after I finished it but I couldn't find what was missing. When I published it on the forum for dutch art journalers I heard it was 'something with the eye'. So I grabbed my markers and even collaged a bit more and now it looks like this:
I feel more satisfied about it now. What do you think?
