Day 19 of 31 Days of Halloween

Today is #19 in the 31 Days of Halloween!

Hello and welcome to my day of cultural appropriation. I do not celebrate el Día de Muertos but I do enjoy the art, colors, altars, and sugar skulls.

I went and played in my black journal again.  Also I used the bride and groom from the Octopode Factory.  Journalling in white pen is really fun on a black art journal page, I realized today and then I had to force myself to stop so I could go to the bank. Another realization, I can now justify buying more Posca Pens!  White and black are the only large tipped markers that I have and 0.7mm tips are kind of a pain when filling in larger areas.  I feel a shopping trip coming on!



If you are following Smeared Ink's 31 Days of Halloween blog hop, the side bar contains the blog roll. I am listed as "Lee" which might be good info to know if you get lost. Thanks for coming by and I will   see you tomorrow!
