Halloween Glue Book Spread

 Hey there, hope you are all well. I've had a somewhat traumatic few days but I think/hope it's in the rear view now. I was down with my Arthurs in this heat with pain and swelling, then our central A/C died. We got it fixed and I'm improving slowly every day, but during the ordeal all we could do really was be as still as possible, any exertion in the heat was quite taxing, so I've just kept on crafting and that and my Honey are getting me through. 
What I have to share today is pretty much just silliness, lol. A Halloween-themed spread in my word play glue book journal. They are two separate pages, really, but they go well together and share the candy corn patterned paper background. 
This page is an homage of sorts to Alfred Hitchcock. I love the LeighSBDesigns digital image of him and so I imagined him talking to the bird, with of course his customary Good Evening, which is how he began every episode of AH Presents on TV when I was growing up. What I have him saying makes me chuckle because of his movie The Birds. :-) But the bird could also be telling him that, too, as his beak is open, haha. Hitch's expression lol - who do you think you are. So either way, an interesting conversation. I added the text in PSE and printed out and then stippled Dried Marigold Distress Ink all around the image, then added some blue green highlighting with a Promarker. I used some film strip washi tape for a frame all around it. The top title and bottom quote were stippled as well. 
The Hitch quote I've used.
On the other page, I've combined a Gecko Galz digital gothic image with hand-stamped elements. The Picket Fence Studios ghost was stamped with Versamark and then brushed with different Perfect Pearl iridescent colors and sealed with hair spray, then fussy cut and outlined with a black Ebony pencil. The 3 Boos and Boo Sheet sentiments were stamped with Nocturne Versafine Clair, stippled with the Distress and fussy cut. The two cute Impression Obsession kids were stamped with the Clair and then colored with both Promarkers and Tombows. I used Yellow Wink of Stella to color the stars and her wings. The bottom title was computer generated by me and stippled with the Dried Marigold and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks. 
And final view. Thanks for the visit today and stay cool - that's my goal! XOX

The righthand page has the focal hand-stamping and hopefully is cute and funny
