Get ready for Halloween!

Hello everybody, I hope all are well. Welcome to my newest followers, I'm so happy to see you here.

We have a fun challenge starting at Make It Colourful today.....colour with Orange and Black. The Design Team have made some Halloween projects because there are some terrific new images at Make It Crafty, but you can of course make a project for any occasion you like. I've not really used my orange markers much so this was a good time for me to get to know them.

I used a brand new image, Spooky House, and kind of experimented with an orange sky.  Well, I went a bit mad with those Yellow Reds, didnt I? he hee, but it was fun. Having a new image that I've never seen anyone colour before is a challenge but one I really enjoy, it's cool to see what you can make with it and then see how others use it. This week I also had a play around with the Mini Headless Horsemen which was another that was such fun to colour, isn't he great? I printed it off again slightly larger and used just the pumpkin head as an embellishment, added some lettering and a couple of bats, a bit of Atyou Spica glitter around the lettering (you can't really see on the photos) and it was finished. I don't do Halloween cards, so this will end up as a page in my art journal when I finally get around to making one.
