Happy Monday, here’s to a great week ahead! I had to think for a good few minutes when I woke up this morning to try and remember what day it was haha never a good sign.
Today I am sharing another art journal page with Art Journal Journey where the lovely Tracey is hosting the My Favourite Colour is October challenge, and with the 31 Days of Halloween Hop+Challenge 2021 so check the end of the post for more details.
This is another page with some fabric on it, this time just that strip in the middle which was a remnant that I thought I would use up in my journal.
After I glued the fabric down and let it dry, I painted the rest of the background with a green-gold liquid acrylic paint. I love this colour! Then I used a white pen to add more details to the skull fabric.
I decided to fill in the rest of the page with part of a poem by Robert Burns called Halloween. Like a lot of his other poems it is very long so this is only a few lines from the beginning, and as you can probably see it is written in old Scots, so there are a few possibly unfamiliar words in there that you might be wondering about like OWRE which means OVER and HAUD which means HOLD. If you want to read the whole poem, you can find the Scots version of it here and an English translation of it here.
Short and sweet today, in the middle of cooking dinner! Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
