A bat out of............................ by Meat Loaf

A mixed jumble of styles  for this journal page.
As you can see it was finished  in a digital program, I do enjoy mixing my own pages this way.

My aim was to make another page for
  Art Journal Journey
Linda's theme this month is ... For the record..... Inspired by a song.
It was realy the title of Meat Loaf's song...  'A bat out of Hell'
that got me thinking of what I would add to my page.

I revisited my dark side and used this page, which was a base layer for a Halloween project last year.  here.
The base layer is also one of my older journal pages, with a painted woodland.
Other additions were my own/stored or found items.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been making.The comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

  11. I had to laugh when I saw the brilliant title....I've often though it would be a good gothic page! I often used to follow song title or quote inspiration for my embroideries so I'm having fun seeing what you girls come up with this month.
