Autumn Thoughts

Halloween’s not very far away, you know…

…the thought just dawned on me this week. 

So, I gathered up some of my favorite fall fixins and played with a couple of journal pages…

One thing I learned on these pages?  Black iridescent watercolor paint is not my favorite.  Looks a bit green, doesn’t it?  Maybe the gold painted vines set it off that way…I don’t know.  Next time—black gesso.  Oh, well--it was still fun to paint!

And the most fun part of all?  Experimenting with the old, gold-flecked sealing wax I ordered on Ebay a while ago…beautiful stuff!  I dropped a couple of extra drops around just to make it look a little Hallweenier

All the great vintage graphics are found on Crafty Secrets new downloadable Halloween collection—easy peasy!
