Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween  everyone and Oh my! October is getting over. Two more months to go and we are at the threshold of a new year. Today both my sons are so excited to dress up and go for the school parades and also for trick or treat in the evening-:)  I'm not someone who gets so excited about this day but it does make me smile to see their anticipation and excitement.

I had been busy in my Fall journal, creating more Fall themed sketches. Now there are only 5 more pages left in my handmade journal. Once it is completed I'm planning to do a Winter Journal in the same fashion.

 I did another set of sunflowers-:) 

Yet another  Fall sketch with lot of pen work. 
Linking this to Art Journal Journey 's theme, Deep in the Forest

This is the page that I created in my Strathmore Mixed Media Art Journal. The background is layered with Dylusion spray inks, stencilling and modelling paste. Next, I created the silhouette of the girl and outlined it with stabilo pencil.  
The quote on her dress states," The things we take for granted, someone else is praying for."

Isn't that so true! Even the basic things in our lives, when we fuss about the food, clothing and shelter that we have, there are millions praying for them.
Most of us get bored with routine. We never realize that normal routine is such a blessing. When it gets disrupted by a sudden illness or the death of a dear one, only then we realize how valuable our old normal life with our loved ones were.
Whenever boredom creeps into my routine, I remember the blessings that I have and feel very Thankful for them.

Wishing you all a safe Halloween and lovely weekend
