Candy Cauldron

“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble.” - from Shakespeare's Macbeth
It is my favorite time of year and I spend half off the summer dreaming and planning for Halloween adventures in art. We are going to be working in our journals, midori style using lots of fun techniques I've never done before. We will be incorporating watercolor ground on some of the pages. We will also be creating a Jack and Sally ornament for your Halloween tree. Here is some homework for you to do before class lots of Tim Burton movies and The Quay brothers.
We will take inspiration from Tim Burton, Disney Halloween, and Quay brothers and stir them in our cauldron to create our own girls and pour them into our journal. This is a safe place to experiment and cook up some lively little creepies!

New Bible journaling video

This is my first bible journaling session although I have journaled about scripture before.....I have never worked in a Bible like this. The pages are thin, so they are delicate but can be painted if you are careful and don't add too much.

I am journaling out of Psalms 32 and I love putting an image to the holy words. It is such a great way to worship and start off the day.

The mermaid markers worked nicely in the journal as well! I highly recommend.

here are the supplies that I used:
