My Darkest Moments Mini Album

There's a Dark Arts Forum at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack that challenged me to do something different in my "Artsy World".  There have been some very dark moments in my life, that the Lord has surely seen me through, that I thought would be perfect for a mini album in the Dark Arts category.  I know what I've come up with or will come up with is not exactly what the rest of the folks there will do but this is my version of it.

So, here's the cover for my Dark Arts Album:
I used Halloween stickers and hung a word (scary) charm from the tree.  I added red stickles to the eyes of the birds, hanging bat and skull.  I added black stickles around the moon.  I hand wrote the title with a black Marvy marker.  I made the 'reinforcements' around the holes with TH Black Soot Distress Ink.  I used the same ink to distress all the edges of the cover, the left side where rings will go and the 'ground' area.

JoAnn, this is great. Just the fact that you stepped back and acknowledged those times will make you stronger. Thank you for joining me on this journey

JoAnn, you are so inventive with your creativity. I just love what you have created and to make it into a mini is such a great idea. I love the tree and the hanging bat...really a fantastic scene. I love this and plan to make a dark moments type journal...TFS! ;-)

Wow JoAnn, I'm really impressed that you are channelling into that side of your art. Love the cover. I know where to come and find the Crooked house.
