Journal Page for Hallowe'en

I had real fun creating this Hallowe'en themed Page!
I had the image in my head from the word, go
& I'm pleased to say it mostly went as planned.
 
The background began as pieces of dry wall tape
randomly stuck down. It was then covered generously with
gesso & dried. Then came the two stencils & home made
texture paste. Beaded home made paste added at the bottom.
I then painted the sides with TH distress paints but
once dry it was too dark so I went over it with Silk Acrylic Glaze.
Added die cuts & hand cut pieces all in black.
Then painted them with matt black paint.
I added texture paste to the top of cauldron & made it look
as if it had spilt down the side as the Witch stirred the mix.
For fun I added textured circles for bubbles.
Acrylic Glazes - Moss Green, Olive Vine
& Boysenberry. Beads painted with Primary Element Pigments
Black Orchid & Blushing Rose to redden some of the brown.
I painted the bubbles & Cauldron "gloop" with Primary elements
Lucky Apple & added some further colour with Big Brush Markers
by Faber Castell. Finally gave both the Cat & Witch some
white highlights to make them stand out as bit.
