October journal pages for debby and tiny magnets....

I had a set of journal pages due for my friend Debby from my "color me silly" group...Her theme is the months of the year and I had picked October. I got to work on it last night and I had to incorporate Halloween. I know nature is beautiful in the fall and the weather is the best, but the kid in me was screaming "trick or treat!, trick or treat!' So here it is.....I used alcohol inks for the first time, they are very messy but I like the look on the plastic clock face. I also made some tiny little magnets on paper mache' stars. They are simple but kinda sweet I think. Today, I have a craft planned for the kids. I am going to let them make pencil holders out of some cans. We will see how this one goes. Maybe I can clean a closet while they are creating!

I just love all of your Whimsical Creations, Melinda! How Neat!! And those lil star magnets are just way cute!! Good luck with that closet cleaning and I'm looking forward to seeing some photos of the kids crafting their pencil holders! I remember making them out of juice cans when I was a lil girl... LOL
