Reviving an old project for Bibiana's challenge.

Hi everyone, it's weekend and I'm home alone; hubby's gone on a motorcycle trip and will be back on Sunday evening. I just hears about this new Throwback Thursday challenge by Bibiana, and this time you're supposed to revive an old project, prefereably Halloween. Now this project isn't necessarily Halloween, but autumn, however, the Stampotique stamps do give it a Halloween feel. These stamps have this creepy appearance which I really like. I made this spread in my selfmade Donna Downey inspired journal. It has the characteristic inclusion which at first was very hard for me to incorporate in my spreads, but after a while I grew accustomed to them and now I think the're wonderfull, because they provide extra room for all sorts of stuff. So here's my spread.
With the inclusion to the right,
and with the inclusion to the left.
I started my background with distress paints in Autumn colours. Let them run and love the blending effect. The cobwebbs at the top I drew with a permanent marker. All the stamps are Stampotique stamps. The spider was stamped straight on to the background and coloured in with a Copic marker.
The other stamps were stamped on Copic paper and coloured in. I wanted those colours to stand out more. The kittycat....
The little fellow (one of my favorite Stampotique stamps) because he's both creepy and cute....
and finally Edward who reminds me (and was probably based on) Edward Scissorhands, and I', such a Johnny Depp fan, you can see him on the first spread picture.
I made this one in October 2013, so about a year ago. Still like how it turned out. The little leaves I bought in a cheap store for next to nothing.
Hope you all have a great weekend!! Hugs Frea
I will enter my spread in this challenge:
