Hello, hello, hello! October is finally here and with it comes my favourite time of the year! Chilly weather, comfort food, baked goods, and best of all - spooky season! What's not to love about October?!
This October, I decided to change things up a little. While I absolutely adore the different fall themes going around, I went the way of a little magic! And what is more magical than the night sky!? Check out the original post here.

- Archer and Olive A5 Signature Dot Grid
- Black Acrylic paint/Markers/Favourite colouring medium
- Zig Kuretake Gold Watercolour
- Favourite paintbrush! I used this detailer brush pen.
One of the biggest reasons I absolutely love the Archer and Olive journal is that I can use pretty much any medium I want! I love using a lot of paint in my journal and it is amazing how well this the paper in these journals hold up to paint!
Step 1: Base
To create this spread, I first started off with a base layer of black acrylic paint. You could use anything here really - gouache, markers, craft paper even!
Allow to dry completely and then start adding in my favourite part - the tiny stars and moons! There isn't a set rule here on how you add these in. Feel free to add in as many or as few elements as you want. I added in stars, constellations, little crescents, and even a few crystals!
Continue doing this until you're happy with how your spread looks. I like to splatter on some gold paint as well. The key is to just have a ton of fun! These types of cover pages are my favourite - simple, easy, no fuss!
Once this is done, I added in a little strip of kraft paper with the month on it and that's it! A super quick but really fun cover page!
