Spooky Fun

As Halloween weekend is upon us, I created this page full of Spooky Fun to wish you all a Happy Halloween!

I started by adding the panels of wrought iron and ghost images which were from an old magazine and then I added some striped washi tape to fill in the gaps between the panels. The wording was also cut from magazine pages; so all the letters matched some of the backgrounds were coloured using a black Faber-Castell marker and some of the letters using a Gold Spectrum Aqua marker. Once the wording was stuck in place, I added some touches of gold to the letters using a gel pen and I outlined them using black Glitterations border stickers which added a bit more sparkle.

The purple ivy die cuts and coloured papers that I used to die cut the autumnal leaves from, were leftover from other projects; the leaves were die cut using a Fall Foliage Thinlits set by Tim Holtz. To finish, I splattered the whole page with some black DecoArt acrylic paint.

The wrought iron reminded me of the gates at Lytham Hall. There have been spooky goings on reported at the gatehouse, where these gates are situated, which include phantom cars and white paranormal sightings; if your interested you can check out the full story here titled Ghosts at Lytham Hall.

Hoping that you’re all staying safe and well!

  1. That’s a lovely spooky page Jo – I love the lettering which for some reason made me think of ‘art deco’ – maybe it was the gold on black. Great ghostly centrepiece and those leaves in purple and gold work so well. A classy spooky page for halloween.
    Hugs, Neet xx
    ps just read the story of Lytham Hall – that’s a must visit some time

  2. That’s a fun spooky page. I love how you used the gate photo. It gives your page not only some creative interest but does make the ghost feel a little more real. And the gates do remind me of the one in your photo. Off to check out the ghost page you linked. Thanks for linking this up for Tracey’s challenge at AJJ. Have a fun HAlloween and weekend too Jo. Hugs-Erika

  3. What a fun, fun page, Jo. I love the tiny splatters that didn’t overtake the page, but were quite tasteful. The way you put this together was genius. I love the slight spooky effect you gave it and the way you tied it to Lytham Hall. It’s a wonderful entry for Tracey’s theme at Art Journal Journey, too.
