The Halloween Gang

A 30minutes journal page for the Art Journal Cafe challenge. Ok, I had a think beforehand. Halloween seems to be creeping up on us and there are all these wonderful Halloween creations everywhere .... so the theme was fixed. I also thought that everything was well in reach to go ahead and do it .... my new little Snag'em stamps were still on the table awaiting to be inked up.
Well, somehow I used a double page in my journal and it took me AGES to do the background ... why on Earth did I do a double page? Then I thought it would be nice to colour some of the images because I had a couple of minutes spare ... BIG mistake as it didn't work and I had to repair! And then .... I enjoyed every single minute of it ... how did this happen? Petra.
Mr Repaired - isn't he cute?

The background is stencilled with various distress inks, the stamps used for 
the gang are from Snag'em, Craft Stamper, Betty Creations and Lavinia.

That background is fantastic, but I know what you mean... what were we thinking on a timed challenge to do SPREADS???? Yours is killer and I'm so glad you joined us at AJC. I think a whole lot of us are having a reality check and saying sometimes short and sweet = really fun!

This is wonderful- and a huge challenge to get 2 pages done in the time limit! Love the way you did the colors & squares so the eye is drawn right to the center! I know what you mean about the ideas and how fast the time goes - and how much fun it was too.

I'm impressed. I can't do anything in 30 minutes. :)
