Paint with Me~ Halloween Junk Journal Cover

Hello! A continuation from my last video, I am painting the cover of my Halloween Junk Journal! I am currently taking a class by Mindy Lacefield called Happy Haunts. So fun to create something different then what I typically paint. This is a beginning to end video of me painting the cover to a personal size planner. I am using it as a Halloween Junk Journal! So grab your coffee/ tea and paintbrushes and let’s create!

Halloween Junk Journal set up

Hello and Welcome back to my Channel! In this video I am putting together a Halloween Themed Junk journal. I have gathered papers and fun ephemera and will be filling it up with all things cute and spooky. I am taking a Happy Haunts class by Mindy Lacefield so I plan on filling my journal with the artwork I create in her class! Come along and let’s get spooky!!! I am using a personal size ring bound binder to fill up with all the things!

September Art and Journal Entry

Let’s Dance!! It’s beginning the most wonderful time of the year! I want to enjoy every bit of the seasons to come. I think we can all agree 2020 has just been an extremely weird year, but I am putting on my rose colored glasses and pulling out the autumn leaves and ready to start decorating for fall. I also plan to add a bit of Halloween in the mix. Typically this time of the year I am so busy making product for shows, I don’t stop and smell the Pumpkin Spice long enough to enjoy the season. This year it is going to be different. The Pandemic has really helped me focus and slow down a bit. I am painting more which is my most favorite thing to do. I am so grateful for the time of rediscovering my passion and to PLAY!

The September CWR stationery/planner/journal kit is “Cozy Autumn Days” I will be using the new Simple Stories ” Cozy Days” line to curate a perfect autumn kit! What do you think of when you think of Cozy? Here is a few illustrations of what I think of, this is a printable and can be use in your journal/ planner or notebook.

Also, one of my Favorites Autumn things to make is PUMPKIN COOKIES! Oh yes, these are like little pumpkin bread cakes. I will be making a batch soon to send to my little sister, these are are favorite too! I had to share the recipe with you, see below for the recipe.

This month I will be taking another Mindy Lacefield’s art class, called Happy Haunts…so excited. I really enjoyed her Mystic Unicorn School class. I will be makinga junk journal binder for all things Halloween (video coming soon). I also signed up for a course called Fearless Art by Shawna Clingerman. I’m really excited and hoping to learn to take that leap of complete faith and focus on what my next stepping stone as an Artist.

SAVE THE DATE: November 7-14th, 2020. I will have a new video series in the works for Christmas! It’s going to be a “Creative Christmas” Series filled with Journaling, Christmas projects and Fun! There will be a few live videos on Facebook as well.

Well that is a wrap for this month’s Newsletter! Let me end with another Favorite Thing!

Who remembers these colorful pencils from when you were a kid? When you write the lead changes colors. I used them in the Mystic Unicorn School and on some of my journaling pages. They are so fun! Brings out the inner child!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy September!
