October 2021 Reading Journal

I was so excited to work on my October reading journal spread. I couldn’t wait to make it nice and spooky. So check out my October 2021 Reading Journal.

I decided a bat would work nicely since there are bats on the outside of the journal. But I didn’t want just a plain old bat. I decided to do a reversed silhouette. So I stenciled out a bat and then blacked out the entire page.

For the rest of the pages I decided to paint them black as well. I used so much black acrylic paint.


Literally, so much paint. Then I painted in the titles. That was a process because the orange wasn’t opaque at all. I had to use several layers so I didn’t get as smooth of a finish as I wanted.

Wrap Up

Lastly, I decided to do two pages for wrap up this month. I kind of want to start adding a picture of my favorite book of the month to the last page. I just think it’s a cute way to keep track.

So that was my October 2021 reading journal. I had a lot of fun making this, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to remove all the paint from my fingertips.
