Watching and waiting

My last journal page for the September theme of ........
Through my Window  at  Art Journal Journey.

On the left is the original page, made with a variety of stencils and distress inks. I think the background was mopped up Dylusions spray inks.
The stamps are Graphics 45, Stampers Anonymous, Chocolate Baroque and Stampotique.
The photo above has a few added digital elements, the face in the window is from mischief circus.

The Halloween season is rapidly approaching, my son's used to have lanterns made out of turnips back in the day. They grew up and many years passed. Now here I am in blogland   anticipating its coming and creating a few pieces to hang in my porch and create in my journal.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today. I always appreciate the comments you leave me.


  1. Love your fun page! Great colours and I love the glamorous looking witch! Chrisx

  2. Love how you've created a spooky atmosphere amongst the bold autumn colours - love that it started as a mop up and oh my word how scary that digi face at the window is!
