Masked – Art Journal

It’s Halloween… Are you wearing your mask? Not just your spooky costume mask, but also that PPE? I hope so – as we know it is one of the most important things we can all do to help stop the spread of the virus. It’s been on my mind a lot lately, so I took it to my art journal.

I started my background with some new soft pastels that I have been playing with lately (link below for those), mixed with fluid matte medium. Then I used my Versailles stencil with blue water based spray paint. To highlight the design more, I added a Posca marker outline and my Fan-fare rubber stamps. 

I sketched the skeleton lady with acrylic ink on deli paper and also added in my You are my No. 1 Priority stamp from the #keepyouposted set because that is the whole point right? I am wearing my mask to help protect everyone around me :)

I hope you have a happy, safe Halloween.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

Crazy Americans or…Happy Halloween

NatKalbach_Halloween01

As we do not really celebrate Halloween in Germany…well it is getting more and more over last couple years but we do not have a real history of it, it is pretty funny to see all the decorations and people dressed in costumes. The funniest is when you ride on the subway to or from NYC sitting next to a witch and looking at a squid, while the shark dog on the lap of another guy is looking pretty harmless ;) I love this video with the song for Halloween – Dan Buckley did an amazing job with this!

I was wondering what I would wear as a costume if I would go to a Halloween party and I think I would go as a Picasso Guitar – LOL. What would you / what are you wearing for Halloween?

Huge hugs

Nat

    Actually we just have a lot of fun with it here in America. The kids love it and with the exception of a few people who try to ruin it for everyone, it is just a fun day for treats, parties and costumes.

    The eyes on that girl on the swing are just spooky.
    The creative world must make tons of money on this “little” holiday when I see all the paper, stamps and such offered for sale.

    Warum Picassos Gitarre? Ich finde, das Kleid steht dir gut *lOl* Aber dein Post erinnert mich daran, nachher zumindest noch irgendwo ein Pfund Süßkram für die Dorfkinder zu besorgen ………………..

    Heeehe what a cute card! My plans for Friday were to cook Indian food for my two best friends with their men. It was a lovely evening with tasty food, a lot of wine and board games.
