September and October.

 This month seems to have flown by!  Here is the photo of my finished pages, I dont think I would use black again for my journalling, as it was hard finding a medium to colour in any drawings Iwould otherwisw have drawn.  The white writing on the black certainly made it look like the blackboards of my schooldays!.
 For October, I used Halloween as my theme.  Fisrt gesso ans when dry, black acrylic paint.  Then I decided to draw spiders webs all over- a very daunting thing for me to do, no planning, just went for it.
 As I couldn't find any embellishments, I decided to make my own from paper-clay.
 Had graet fun painting them once they were dry.  All the paints and tools I used are in the above picture.
 Voila!the finished embellishments.
And here is my completed pages.  Colours not a true reflection in the photo, as I took it this morning in very bright daylight.  Colurs are pumpkin orange, Frankenstein green and purple.
A few details.
