This week’s Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House just screamed my name. Challenge #83 is Magically Witchy, and boy oh boy did I have ideas! I had a flurry of thoughts on what I could make…going way beyond the card! But, time was not on my side this week as I had to do several things regarding Phoenix’s school this week. Plus, along with the flurry of ideas came an overstimulation of sorts. Too many thoughts, ideas, and even ways to do things. I was overwhelmed with ideas. And now, it’s late on Saturday and I NEEDED to play. I couldn’t let this challenge pass me by. So I made a page in one of my art journals.
I was washing dishes, thinking about the challenge, and I thought, “It’s about more then cats, bats, and broomsticks…” I knew that was what I needed to make my journal page about. I am actually thinking of making this into a huge canvas art piece, as I couldn’t fit all of my ideas on one little page. But enough of me typing…here’s a look at my page.
I just got some amazing goodies from a Tattered Angels order, and the cat in the center is from it. I knew I had to se it here. The bats are from Inkadinkado, as is the witch on her broom.
I used 3 colors of Glimmer Mist, some Stickles and a bit of my soul on this page. But…isn’t that what art journaling is about?
See the glitter and glimmer? You can click on any of my pictures to see them bigger.
The words read:
It’s about more than Cats, Bats, and Broomsticks.
It’s about life, death, nature…
It’s a way to believe…
To be in harmony with the earth…
But- those cats, bats and broomsticks sure can be fun!
I really hope I find the time to make the canvas I have in my head. I think it would be really cool to hang something like that up in my craft room (pun intended).
Thanks for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!
