Art Journals and Pixie Butts

I had a blast combining challenges this week to bring you these spooooooky art journal pages...

I am entering these pages into the:
Lollipop Crafts Challenge - Anything But a Card

The spiderweb and witch images are from Tiddly Inks.  The cauldron you can find here.  The awesome jar full of eyeballs is from Smeared Ink.  I printed out the poem in a creepy cool font.  I painted Gesso on my pages and then sprayed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.  Images and text were printed on copy paper, and colored with markers and pencils/Gamsol.  After it was all applied with Mod Podge, I sprayed more Smooch Spritz on it.

The left side of the page is for the:
And... the right side of the journal is for the:

I hope you enjoyed my foray into the creepy - I'm trying REALLY hard not to do "cute" with these challenges, but I admit that witch is pretty darn adorable.  hee hee  I decided to do an extra page for the Tiddly Inks challenge, too, this one is definitely more "cute":
I used "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Dandylion Pixie" for this one.  :)
And I have just one more card to share today - phew!  This one is for 2 challenges:


I used Petit Pot from the Just Some Lines store, colored with Prismacolor pencils/mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers.  DP is from My Mind's Eye - cardstock and gemstone brads are from Stampin' Up!
