The night before Halloween.

Hello all!
        Just popping in with a quick post about my latest project for The Octopode Factory Friday challenge , the theme this week being PUMPKINS.   Obviously appropriate for the time of year :)
                      I decided to do another page in my mini art journal and made a background using up some scraps of designer paper and a continuous border of an "Eeeek!" stamp.  For the main image, I used Lily's Gloomsville Pumpkin Stack digi and grabbed some paints to set to!  The background behind the pumpkins was painted, stamped and splattered with acrylic paints, Distress paints and inks, after I had masked the pumpkin stack.  I painted the pumpkins with an orange acrylic paint, adding details with Faber Castell Big pens and a Sharpie.  I'm really enjoying playing around with paints and having my own little art journal to play in, makes the whole process so enjoyable - no rules!!

          I would like to enter this into the challenges at SSS Monday , Through the Craftroom Door , Clear it Out , Cuttin' and Stampin' and Digi Galore.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween tomorrow!

I adore this page you made! I would've never guessed you did all that coloring with acrylic paints! And the Eeeek border is adorable! I also liked how the border is a patchwork of different patterns. You've got a great eye for combining all sorts of elements successfully. I really enjoyed looking at this project and feel inspired! Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

TERRIF-EEK card Dawn, Bwahahahahahaha.
Love the image and it's so beautifully coloured. The papers are a HOOT too, but it's that little sideways sentiment that has me LOL, are we drinking too much for the holidays? Here in Canada, we have a saying that if you're lit then you are pretty inebriated!!! Totally fun card, Tally-ho :)S
