DAY #15 0F THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, SMUDGY ANTICS and MACABRE MONDAY

WELCOME TO DAY #15 ..........today i have two new challenges to share with you, and loads of pictures of my pieces for these challenges. I am trying to alter a battered old dolls house into a Halloweeny haunted house for the last day of this month long hop.... one room is now completed...YAY! Shame the outside is still in primer and the rest of the inside totally untouched but .....its a start.
                                     The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics is
"Dia De Los Muertos".

THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THE RULES.
There will be no more top 3 or random winner.
Our Design Team will vote for ONE winner and that person will receive both a blog button and prize. You do not have to use a Smeared Ink image to win.  We pick the best of the entries so bring your A-game!
*Projects are not limited to cards.  We also accept and encourage mixed-media pieces, sculptures, art journal pages, etc.  Just be sure to use a stamped image somewhere in your project ("real" or "digi") and follow the challenge rules and you are golden :)
                                                Above is the DAY OF THE DEAD BEDROOM
The grave scene on the wardrobe, locker, and bed cover are from SMEARED INK as is the large cross tombstone on the wall.( all images are coloured with promarkers) The walls are covered in paper from my stash, the floors are covered with floor tiles(huge thank you to my DAD.... he did all the floors in the  dolls house last wednesday for me....) and i used a spiders web coaster as a rug.The skirting boards are a MS punch.

Now to the challenge at MACABRE MONDAY....
"Rest In Peace"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has anything to do with cemeteries, coffins, headstones, or funerals.
Any and all things resting in peace. Or pieces...
So you can see now  how my project does fit both challenges...... i have gravestones on wardrobes but also a resting place...the BED!
I decorated the tiny skulls, DOTD style with sukura pens.... used tiny candles and made holders for them... tiny metal roses. I stamped on some tea stained cotton to make the bedcover and made cushions from felt.
All the furniture has been painted and distress then had the images added.I think i'm gonna leave these pieces matte.... but i might vanish them at a later date... we'll see.
The full blog hop list is on my side bar.... i hope you'll join in with us at SMUDGY ANTICS and MACABRE MONDAY HDH this week. Thanks for visiting.... and i hope to be back with another room very soon. See you tomorrow for DAY #16 . BDx
