as does my altered incense burner...
I have called it LOST SOULS...

these are the lost souls.
 You have 2 weeks to join us at HDH for this our last challenge until the new year.

here's just a tiny taster 1/9th to be exact!
 Plus.... I have been a busy dragon.... you'll see me at DOMINOART during the hop as well.
Below is a sneaky peek just to get you guessing what i've added dominos too.
Thank you for stopping by... i am really very grateful to you all for sticking it out and continuing to comment..

Here is todays calender page, made for the new challenge at
DELICIOUS DARKNESS,
the challenge is ANYTHING GOES as long as its  Hallowe'en.
 I have used Teri's gorgeous LA LLORONA
You have a whole month to enter with the chance of winning some of Teri's superb images.
I kept the colouring on this really simple as the image needs nothing really.
I just used shades of lilac, pink and pale blue pencils to give it an even more ghostly feel.
Please come and join us this month...we love to see your dark creations.
 I have also got a project on the DE-STEMPELWINKEL blog today that you'll see later in the hop.
I have started altering a board book from one of our pound stores....
I only have all the pages covered and the cover completed...DUH! I really should have done better!
 HDH MACABRE MONDAY is now into the second week of our challenge...
YOU WOOD DO THAT.
I have altered some wooden crosses.... 2 can be seen at DE-STEMPELWINKEL,
so I won't show them here... you'll see them with the book cover later in the hop.
 I covered the crosses with clay...stamped into it, and baked 'em in the oven.
I gave each a slightly different paint paint finish.
You'll see the 5 I altered at HDH...3X NECKLACES, 2X KEYRINGS.
You have until Sunday to link up your 'wood' project with us...
we minions really love seeing what dark creations you come up with.
Well thats it... Thank you for stopping by today.... see you again tomorrow I hope for DAY #14.

Just a calender page for you today...and a little peek of something else you'll see later in the hop at DOMINOART.
 I am so pleased that I managed to finish my calender before the beginning of this hop.....
not sure what I'd do if I had to do it and other 31 day projects every day.... my craftroom and dining room look like a bomb as been dropped on them with so many projects in the prep stages or half done.
My girls have been quite enjoying eating their meals on trays in the lounge some nights
 but I had to have a massive clear up yesterday before my parents came for a meal.... my dad and stepmum would be horrified if I gave 'em a meal on a tray cos' of the Hallowe'enie stuff on the table.
Took me all morning to get all the stuff laid out again on the dining table... feel much more at home now!!!
Anyhow...I digress.... today's calender page was made with my sister in mind....
she detests spiders.... nothing in this world scares her more.
Stamps are paper artsy... stamped ,masked, coloured in my usual way.
 Here is a little before shot of the games pieces I have altered and you'll see the finished items at DOMINOART later in the hop today.
Thanks for continuing to take the time to visit..... it makes eating on a tray in the lounge worth while!
see you tomorrow for DAY #13...... ITS A BUMPER DAY FOR ME.... 3 projects, 1 day,eeeeeekkkk!!!!

not just any old tag mind you, it must somehow be related to the Master, Poe.

 I used stamps from DE-STEMPELWINKEL,
stamped and masked my images to create a scene.
Coloured with mixed colouring mediums.
 It would be wonderful if you could join us this month, you have 13 days to link up your project,
and be in with a chance of winning a $15 VOUCHER to spend at IKE'SART....
check out the blog hop post, spotlighting the newly released ZOMBIE PETSHOP!
I have a couple of sneaky peeks for you today as well... although my tag is simple I have been a busy dragon.
I am the designer  today over at
DE-STEMPELWINKEL
where you'll see two of my projects later in the hop...
here's the 1st one...
 ...and here's the second one. NOTE TO SELF....
make something to go in the box!
I hate empty boxes!
