Since we are getting really close to October…you may have noticed that people have started getting ready for Halloween! I come from a background where we don’t celebrate this holiday but having been living in the UK for quite a few years now, I am used to this tradition and kind of looking forward to it. However, we don’t really exchange Halloween cards so I thought to use my stamp in a different way that is fun, creative but also practical!So I used the Little Witch by Fabrika Fantasy to create the front page of my bullet journal layout for October….and I have to admit I really love it!Don’t get me wrong I really enjoy making cards, but I am an advocate for using your supplies as much as possible, in many different ways …after all we are supposed to be creators, not mere consumers, right? So yes….get inspired by your supplies and get crafty.
Bullet journals are an awesome way to be creative and practical at the same time! Personally I love that I get to actually see my creation on a daily basis rather than having it tucked away in a box or a drawer. At the same time I create something visually pleasing that motivates me to go back to my journal, which in turn helps me stay organized and focused and therefore more productive. (It’s a Win/Win situation!)And if you are like me and you can draw a little bit but you don’t feel that this is your strong point….stamps are your friends!
Anyway…without further ado..this is my project for this challenge!Apart from this Little Witch digi stamp, which I colored using Copic Markers, I used an Old English Lettering stencil to write my title and watercolors to paint the moon and the little details. All the rest were hand-drawn using a Pigma-Micron black pen (any waterproof pen would do) and the calendar was stamped using a generic calendar stampset.
And because I am all about helping eachother and respecting other people’s creations, I want to do a little shout-out to “My Inner Creative” for inspiring me to create this witchy-themed page. (Honestly, the Harry Potter layouts on this blog are mind-blowing!)
