I made the pages of my art journal with water color paper. So each page's background will have me playing with inks and water. Last year I gave away all my Distress inks(i know, right?!), so the only black ink I have is Memento, and Versafine. Well, the Memento ink didn't work like I wanted it to. The bottom part is way to dark. I tried to add some of the Pumpkin Pie ink to it, and it helped some. But was still not happy.
So I stamped a sun on it, and made it into a web at the bottom, still not enough. Decided to add some glitter to make it look like parts of the ground. That helped fill it in some, but I still don't like it.
Now the top part is just fine with me! It's water colored with the Pumpkin Pie, then stamped with two trees from two different Unity kits, So This Is Love, and Imagine It. You can see that my ink pad didn't like the water coloring. I didn't get a good impression, and I did dry this page with my heat tool. But that just adds to the Halloween look I guess!!
The spider web at the top is another Sizzix brass embossing plate that I used as a stencil, then randomly stamped the splotches with SU!'s Gorgeous Grunge set. I don't have any Halloween sentiments other than Boo! so I didn't add any at all.
So, I'll put this page in my journal, and someday I might look back and be happy with it. lol!
I'm sending this page to Unity's hop and also to Try It On Tuesday where their theme is frightening/halloween.
Thanks so much for having a look!
