Trick or Treat Journal Page

With our theme of October Treats this month I couldn't resist some fun and messy play in my journal.

I cropped and enlarged two Halloween Children from the Collage Sheet on my computer and also thought I would use the harlequin patterns from the ATC Coin Background, I also grabbed out some paint and my Gel Plate.

I added some paint to the Gel Plate and pressed this onto each page of my double spread in my large Dylusions Journal.  I then took out my Harlequin Stencil and with some black ink added some detail to the pages.

Next I cut out bits from the ATC Coin Background and added this around the edges of my pages, before taking more paint and my brayer and covering over my background design.

I then worked out the positioning of my three main focal images and added some black paint across the page in the area I planned to add my images.

I then proceeded to add in more detail and definition - including the words Trick or Treat.  I added some stamping and a touch of purple around the edges and my words finishing with some paint like splatters in white.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
