art journal | Halloween with distress oxide inks

Hi! Today I am back with a Halloween art journal project. I used my distress oxide inks for the background and cut outs for my focal points. You can watch the video tutorial for the step by step process! I get so many requests for Halloween art journal projects so here we go! And I am working on one more… so stay tuned this week!

I worked on my custom made 6×6 disc bound journal. The paper I used for this journal is Distress Mixed Media Heavystock  ( SBC | SSS ). I just cut it in size and punch the wholes for my disc bound system.

For my background I used my distress oxide inks. I am so happy with the outcome, such an amazing color combo. I combined old colors and a couple of new ink pads from the latest release, the Chipped Sapphire( SBC | SSS | JGG ) and the Shabby Shutters( SBC | SSS | JGG ). Finally I white embossed the web using the SSS Rubber Stamp SPIDER WEB ( SSS ).

The witches are from the  Tim Holtz Paper Dolls – Ancestors ( SBC | SSS | JGG ). Love these witches!!! And in the package they come in many different sizes so depending on the project you can choose the best for you.

Also lately I love to add design tape and chip quotes on my projects. I used the Quote Chips – Halloween( SBC | SSS | JGG ) and the Design Tape – Halloween( SBC | SSS | JGG ).

    Great page Vicky, I love the new colours Distress Oxide. Although I find it not so easy to use the Oxides but I think that it is a matter of getting used to it, I just have to use them more.
    Thank you for this Halloween page.
    NOTE: I asked you in the comment of the Fall theed Art Journal if I could use Micro Glaze instead of Multi Medium. You said that it could but never tried to go over it with Distress Markers or the Crayons and that I have to try that out and let you know.
    Well I have tried it and it works. I could put the Markers and Crayons over it and smear them just like you did on the pumpkins over the Multi Medium and it dries so that I couldn’t rub it of.
