Here in Central Kentucky, we woke up to a rainy, chilly Monday, and I began planning for my favorite fall activities. I pulled out some warm sweaters, started checking prices on chrysanthemums, and picked up the ingredients to make a big pot of burgoo. The artsy part of me is thrilled to see all the golds, browns and maroons in the stores, and I'm tickled to see fall and Halloween kits showing up in the digital shops.
One of my favorite designers, Marsha Jorgensen of Tumble Fish Studio, just released the Old Haunts kit at Deviant Scrap. Perfect for Halloween, I love the way it mixes sweet and light images with those that are just a little bit darker.
For my first piece, I took the opportunity to play with the style of Rachael Taylor of My Concrete Sky. She's a master of clean design and typography.
The second piece is a little darker. I had to do it because the lyrics to the Alice Cooper song kept running through my head. The only way to exorcise the song was to commit it to paper.
