Halloween Doodle

Fear Becomes You
This is a doodle page I did in response to a Soul Journaling prompt. I didn't set out with the intention of doing a Halloween page, but I couldn't shake the Halloween feeling with my orange background LOL I wish I could take credit for thinking up the skinny man ... but I used an image from Dover clip-art for my inspiration. My section dividers are pieces of embossed wallpaper.

The nervous prompt on
Inspire Me Thursday seemed appropriate for Halloween too, so I also worked that in. This wasn't the most soulful journaling, but it was way fun ... and I needed easy after the crazy schedule I signed up for at school LOL

I love these pages. Love that you had such fun with it, sometimes a Soul Journal page should just be expressing your inner child right?

This is very cool, Karen. I didn't know you are such a good doodler. It looks like this may have taken a lot of time....did it? Well, even if it did, it was well worth it. Oh, and I also love the cat! Great job.

Karen, love how you journal! Every time I look at this piece, I see something new.

This is a gorgeous page! Your thin man is the perfect addition too. Instantly I interpreted the page as him standing up in front of a large crowd to give a speech which is one of my fears. All of your lines and shapes also help me feel the anxiety happening on this page.

I'm pretty sure I already told you how much i love this journal page, but it really does deserve to be repeated! I love it!

Your journal page is great! How did you get such great color blending in the backgrounds, I don't know, but somehow you also pulled off pink and teal in the Halloween season and made it work. Huzzah!
