Anything But Cute Challenge challenge 7.--- 31 days of Halloween

The Halloween challenge on Anything but cute is to use the number 31 on your project.
I have made a Halloween book and used the 31 on the cover. All the pages are different shapes and sizes with lots of different Halloween images. They are all double sided, and I have shown just a few of them.

The Challenge for Our Creative Corner is halloween Horror & The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge is Word Search.

Here is my entry for 'Our Creative corner'. It is a small Tim Holtz  configuration box that I have painted in Halloween colours. I painted the outside of the box in black then placed various spooky things inside.
The handle at the top is a large plastic bat. The circle in the front with a bat on lights up in red ( top picture)

For the 'Mixed Media Monthly Challenge' is Word Search, and you have to say which words you have found to use in your project. Mine are bat, pumpkin and scull.

The challenges I have entered this into are://

Tag Tuesday -- Pastels

I coloured the tags with my palest Pan pastels and then chose an image that suited the two colours. I framed the blue one with a die cut frame, and the green one cut the image in an arch shape. I then added ribbons, and flowers to both tags.

Every Inchie Monday -- Lumberjack

Lumberjack is the word on Every Inchie Monday, and not an easy one to portray on one inch.

More journal pages

Here are a few more journal pages in my Dyan Reaveley style journal. The Dylusion paints are fabulous, if you don't like a page you have created, you can either paint it over with the black paint or use a stencil and paint around the shapes like on the third one.
As you can magine I have quite a few blacked out pages.

Tag Tuesday -- Nature's bounty.

This was a great tag to do as I love trees and leaves. The top of the tag is corrugated card with a leaf cut out of it. I backed this with another tag with a leaf embossed where the cut out was. Both are coloured with  distress inks with some gold embossing.I then added some cut out and painted vilene leaves, acorns a, conker, and dried seeds from lime, and sycamore trees. A few seeds from the garden finished it off.

Dyan Reaveley style journal pages.

After going on a Dyan Reaveley workshop I am now trying to fill not one but three art journals. The idea behind this is to work on one page, and it dries do a page in another one. At this moment in time I have lots of painted and inked pages with very little on them. Here are a few of the finished or nearly finished pages. The top one is in the large journal with pockets for tags. The others are in the smaller ones. I will put some more on later in the week.
