The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #15

This week at the burtonesque dolls the challenge is to make a project with the inspiration of your favourite Burton movie.  I could not decide as I like most of them but I did love Beetlejuice when I was a kid so thought hmm okay.

I know it is not very good but I am not so very good at cardmaking and I am so blooming tired all the time the kiddies run me ragged throughout the day/night/dreams haha.  Anyway I tried to make Lydia using shrink plastic (I cannot seem to do this without it bending and sticking or looking all deformed).  I drew Beetlejuice and coloured him with copics and promarkers.  Tried to make an arch (I know shoddy shoddy shoddy).  Anyway I thought I better explain this monstrosity haha.

I am going off to hang my head in shame (not really I am going off to slob about with my hubby and watch something funny on tv). 

So night night, Andrea x

Loved Beetlejuice too when I was a younger! Your drawing of him is fab!! I think this turned out great!!! My kids aren't that young 16,9 and 6 but They wear me out also!! If I could just get them to mind and not fight( the 2 younger ones) all the time!! Life would be so much simpler!!
