HDH103 - Carnival of Curiosities

THis week at Haunted Design House we want you to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece of the creepy circus or carnival oeuvre.  Come one, come all!! Bring out your freaks, your fortune tellers, terrifying clowns, and your most curious of curios.

I got a bit excited and did three things.  I don't know what is up with me this week I have done tons of crafty stuff.  We were supposed to be taking the kids lots of places before they start school on Thursday but the weather has been absolutely awful.

Anyway I made two brooches and one tarot thingymajibitybob (how very technical of me).

The one below is made using material I made into a flower with a brad in the middle and some beads.  Then using one of my images I inserted it into a metal tag I had and used anitas 3d gloss to seal it and give it a glassy look.  He looks evil right!

This one I realise the outside tulle is far too big and I am going to fix it.  I didn't really realise until I was posting these photos and had another look at  them it looks ridiculous right!  This was made burning some material again and using the bat lady from the graphics fairy.  I did the same as with the jester pin.  I got another metal tag and then using some coordinations card stock which I distressed I stuck her too it, she also has distress inks around her but they don't show up in my photos.  I then added some pearls round the side.

These three images are fromt the graphics fairy again and I distressed the edges of them and made a ticket to go with them which says admit one and in the side it says soul with a mark and on the back it has non returnable but I made it a little edgy to see so that they wouldn't know they were giving up their soul hmm what goes on in this tiny teeny brain of mine!

Anyway I just had a peek at the design teams work and they have outdone themselves not to mention Glo's post on Wed which I know will be fab as it always is.

Fabulous pieces, Andrea! You sure were on a roll with this one. the jester sure does look evil, and I actually like the oversize tulle on the brooch. Adds to the shabby decadence. xxD
