Hello PUMPKIN...

 Hello Pumpkin 😊

Halloween season is upon us it's everywhere in the shops, 
I love the display of different pumpkins available and have spent 
many hours carving out pumpkin faces with the children in the past. 

I've a spooky Halloween inspired journal page today 


A painted background with a stamped and coloured Manor house. 
The full moon illuminates my oversized drawn and painted plump 
pumpkin that greets you at the foot of the winding garden path.. 

If you look long enough at the open Manor house window 
you can almost imagine an eerie shadow staring out at you. 

Amazing how the mind can play tricks on us... 


Stay safe and creative everyone 

Hugs Tracey xx

Tracey, what a great up close spooky pumpkin with the haunted manor in the background! The winding path and spooky night sky are perfect for Halloween.

I absolutely adore your spooky Manor House and incredible pumpkin. That mouth is scary on its own. Love how this fit so nicely with Rain's theme and your theme at Art Journal Journey, too. I love how you drew that very large and impressive pumpkin.

Great spooky pumpkin and page Tracey. Your pumpkin has amazing depth and shadows. It makes me not want to talk any closer to that spooky house. I'd be afraid some ghost would come out and scare me-smile!!!! Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika

Your haunted mansion and evil pumpkin are so good, Tracey! You wouldn't catch me walking up that stoney path. I think a lot of scary eyes are watching anyone approaching that house. I miss carving pumpkins with children! Have a great week!

Well, you know how much I love this time of year and I just adore this page!! The manor house is superb and yes, staring at the window I can just imagine the goings on in there... spooky for sure. The pumpkin has a slightly sinister look about him but I love it - perfection! I want to go and visit that house now... Hugs my friend, Anne xxx

Well, I didn't see any eerie shadows looking at me, but I could sure feel the Pumpkin watching me. An awesome Halloween painting, Tracy and your pumpkin looks so real, I could almost pick him up right out of the picture. Hope you don't have any eerie anythings watching you in real life ... :)

Oh, my goodness, Tracey! This is fabulous artwork and I adore the content! Your jack-o-lantern couldn't be better and you get such a sense of perspective and eeriness from your moonlit sky. Very, Very, VERY cool page!

Love your painting - the manor house looks worth investigating - I would like to spend a night there and listen out for spooky goings on.... pumpkin is a bit scary - isn't this the most inspiring time of year for those who enjoy creating?! Nice to find your blog.
