Pumpkin Patch Halloween

It’s a new month so it’s time to launch a new challenge over at Country View Challenges which is Halloween or Harvest, which is being hosted by the lovely Miriam.

For this challenge, I’m had fun creating this Pumpkin Patch Halloween page using Sizzix Thinlits by Tim Holtz.

The chipboard page was covered with a square of mixed media paper using a glue stick, which was first stamped using a Doorway Finnabair stamp and black Archival Ink. Then I stencilled the large moon using white DecoArt acrylic paint and I coloured the night sky around it using Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks with a blending tool. I used the same Distress Inks to add some texture to the moon itself and I added the black foreground using black DecoArt acrylic paint.

The bats and pumpkins were die cut using a Pumpkin Patch Sizzix Thinlits set by Tim Holtz from different coloured Kraft Stock Classic paper pad by Tim Holtz. To finish, I splattered the page with black DecoArt acrylic paint.

For more inspiration please see the amazing creations from my fellow Design Team members over at Country View Challenges. I hope you’ll join us, it would be lovely to see you there and you never know, you might even win a £20 voucher for the Country View Crafts shop! Before you enter, please read the rules.

There seems to be some spooky goings on at Lytham Hall with pumpkin banners.

As well as this fabulous pottery pumpkin guarding the pumpkin patch.

Wishing you a Happy October and I hope that you’re staying safe and well! x

  1. Such fun! 2020 I made a collage, too – it still hangs on the livingroom-door.
    Next weekend we plan to go to the market to get a real one – great works of yours – to a happy October (despite I miss summer). Hugs!

  2. Happy October! This is a super Halloween page Jo. I love your jack-o-lanterns. Your page is just enough spooky and just enough fun that it is right up my alley. And that ceramic jack-o-lantern is amazing. If I could find one like that it would be sitting in my garden too. Thanks for linking up for Elle’s challenge at AJJ. Have a great start to the new month and happy weekend too. hugs-Erika

  4. How sweet is that lovely pumpkin patch. And I like the spooky moon with the bats. It’s such a clever page. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey using Elle’s theme, too.

    Looks like there is fun at Lytham Hall and the spider webs. I loved that pottery pumpkin. What a beauty.
