There is a new challenge starting today at STAMPITCRAZY and its CANDY...... we the DT were given the little guys shading their eyes to work with so i added 'em to a pumpkin patch. I think they are 'M&M's' i added the words at the bottom.... my attempt at humour?!
I used pumpkins i found on the internet, and a lot of cutting and sticking.
Everything is coloured with promarkers....paper and card from my stash.
Please come and join in this week..... CANDY is the challenge.

My HALLOWE'EN offering is this coffin..... i painted it inside and out with black paint.... added this silver coloured dagger to the front and german scrap around the opening edges.... inside....

i added shelves to the deep side..... and a plaque with a great saying and a dancing skeleton to the otherside.

On my shelves are tiny jars, little skulls and diddy little bottles.... i raided my dolls house for supplies! The saying on the plaque reads.... 'If you cant get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance' ..... i love it!
......and finally a witch fat-book page... and an ATC....both using images from THIRD COAST.... and coloured with watercolours and ink.

Have a great HALLOWEEN..... My girls are now gonna get ready to welcome trick or treaters...... with the oldies i cant take my girls out, but they're having fun getting dressed up and helping with the decs etc.
The full list of WICKED BLOGS is at the top of my sidebar.... THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAS VISITED EVERY DAY...... i have had a heap of fun... and cant wait til next year.

Welcome to day 27 and and my offering today is a large...for me HUGE.... mixed media piece.
It is about 20x20 inches done onto a stretched box canvas.
I shall try later today to take a photo of it hanging on the wall so you can see it all at once... i am useless at taking pictures and have missed the bottom off.

All the stamps used are from SMEARED INK.... QUOTH THE RAVEN SET.... my total favourite set as i am a POE NUT!
Mr Poe in the centre i copied from the stamped image onto thick hessian and painted in oils.
I cut the front off a plastic skull.... amazingly i didnt cut my own fingers when i did it!

You can see i have used so much stuff on this piece.... the locket opens and closes.... the hands are through the canvas and can clutch the locket open or closed.

I have used scrabble style tiles to spell out my words.

Black feathers on chains... oh loads of stuff.... the ornate scroll thingy at the top i salvaged of my grandads old fire before i took it to the 'tip'...i told him i'd reuse it!

I hope you have time to look at the detail... there is tons of stuff here... i have been working on this for over a week... in bits of cause.... and the texture is just what i wanted.

Thanks for visiting.... the list of WICKED BLOGS is still at the top of my sidebar.... have fun hopping ...i know you'll see some amazing projects.
See you tomorrow for day 28...where has october gone?

Today is the 25th day of our 31 days of halloween and its MACABRE MONDAY'S new challenge....and this week its sponsored by SMEARED INK...YAY!!!! So the challenge is SMEARED AND SMUDGED. Big fan of smeared ink me...and not just 'cos i'm on the DT..... I used one of the brilliant WEREWOLF digi images, printed out on to canvas (the same canvas that the sentiment , which is also SMEARED INK, is printed on) in i had a very faint image as my canvas is quite dark.
I then drew a circle for the moon and set about painting in my image in oil paints....i used a stiff flat brush and my fingers to get the smeared and smudged effect i wanted.
It looks like a real painting... well i suppose it is a real painnting but you get my drift.... it dont look like a digi image anymore!
The pic below shows the detail better.... it has real oil-painting texture.
The frame was bright silver but i toned that down with black alcohol ink... removed the glass and and made a frame mount from some heavy weight textured card.....thats it.

Please try to join in the new Macabre mondays challenge...its the last one before HALLOWEEN..... and us macabre minions will have another full year to wait til the big day....
i hope you WICKED HOPPERS like my offering today, and i'll see you tomorrow for day26.
As always the WICKED BLOG list is at the top of my side bar....have fun hopping.

Hello on this horrible wet, windy and cold Saturday...welcome to day #23 and i have 2 projects to share with you guys today, both using images from Teri and you can buy her images here ....
I thought i'd also let you know that Teri has started a blog just to show everyone what can be done with her images and you can find it here
My 1st offering is using the BATTERFLY..... I have tried to make something similar to the victorian butterfly collectors display pieces... with the batterfly pinned to the background.
I have used some crocheted mesh, red tissue, and a scruffy material flower with tatty ribbons....
The frame has been painted and distressed. I layered the body and stuck two pins in it.... with red nail vanish dripping like blood. I stamped 'Exibit A' under the batterfly.
The flower has a large gem in the centre... and tatty ribbons.

I put a spider in the corner....just 'cos i like 'em.

I coloured the image with promarkers and crumpled the tissue before gently distressing with black ink, just to make the crumples show up more.
My next offering is just for a laugh.....

i used Teri's cute bunny and gave him Vampire teeth and red eyes..... loads of 'blood' done with red nail vanish.... and layered pumpkins i stamped and coloured.... with promarkers. The background is stamped using the same PUMPKIN stamp from INKADINKADOO but just the tendrils.... the background is coloured with promarkers as well.

Now if i can creep-out this cute BUNNY image.... i think i can creep-out just about anything!
Thanks for visiting me today.... have a lovely saturday...the list of WICKED BLOGS is as always at the top of my side bar... have fun and i'm sure you'll find tonnes of inspiration.
