The Witching Hour

It's a bit early but the prompt on Joggles Art Journal Adventures today was: Halloween. I'm not that keen but I love any excuse to throw in a skull into my artwork so that was what I did.  The skull itself was spray painted onto a newspaper page using stencil L253 Dia de los Muertos Mask by Stencilgirl Products with black spray ink (I used Liquitex).
The background started with painting the pages with black gesso. I then added pattern using Radiant Gel paints and stencils L456 Buenos Aires, L458 Toledo, both designed by Nathalie Kalbach, and the large stencil from the June 2017 Stencilgirl Club. The skull was glued to the pages (using matte medium) as shown and coloured in with water soluble oil pastels.
I found the three witches on a collage sheet (from Alpha Stamps) and they too were glued on (using a glue stick) as shown. The text was stamped onto vintage paper using a collection of alphabet stamp sets and added to the page.
Finally I spattered on some pink fluorescent paint.
