HDH113 - Heinously Haunted Houses


At Haunted Design House this week join us and make a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that features a haunted house as the focus.  This IS Haunted Design House after all :) The more decrepit, deteriorating or disturbing... the better!

We are taking a break for the rest of the year but will be back all fresh and new at the start of next year.  There will still be the odd bit of creepiness on the Haunted Design House blog so keep checking just in case.

The Masterful Mistress Barb is also offering up a fabulous prize this week, pop on over to HDH to see a pick of the fab little bundle of creepiness.

I went with something a little different this week as I am all crafted out after our party.

You better watch out next time you think something has moved without knowing how it happened!! hehe.

I was extremely tired when doing this so please excuse any errors in grammar and spelling etc and of course the story itself is a bit well.... but you get my drift. 

Anyways hope you all pop over and see what the minions have done.  Seriously as always they blow me away and then we have Glos to look forward to on Wed.

Happy Halloween again

My Sons Halloween Mask

Well after trying out the makeup I ordered some liquid latex and my son wanted to go as a skeleton for halloween so I had started work on a mask I got out of poundland and added some papier mache then added some latex then some fake blood.  I don't think he can wear it though as they will be having their party with the primary ones eeek.

It turned out pretty scary if I do say so myself it is even ickier in real life.

Below is what the mask looks like untouched.

Anyways how cool is liquid latex?

HDH112 - Movie Madness Pumpkinhead

Haunted Design House - Pumpkinhead

Alright so I hold my hands up to have never seen this film (I know hold my head in shame but I have never seen it around).  Anyway I watched a trailer on you tube and got the drift revenge, revenge and oh no I don't want that kind of revenge!

My pic in the middle is a pumpkin I made that had went bad just like pumpkinhead.  I got told it looks more like an alien than a pumpkin.  Also my four year old was bored so I gave it to her to decorate and she glittered it up big style.  Well below is a pic of my pumpkin gone bad:

Then I used one of the pics to turn it into a digi for this digial entry below.  I know I know piece of absolute bleep bleep haha but what can you do!!

You seriously need to go check out the work of the others.  Lynx has made the most amazing piece of jewellery and box and Teri drew another of her fab images and Susan has made another of her brilliant poems and last but not least Donna has produced another little beauty of a card.

Anyways close to halloween now yay!!

HDH111 - Lurid Landscapes

This week at Haunted Design House we are to create something with a lurid landscape.  Think abandoned fields, graveyards, lochs, etc.

My first one is a graveyard pic we took while down near Portsmouth but I can't remember the name of the church.  I just added a filter on it and added one of my digis with the famous line from Night of the Living Dead.

For my second I used a pic I found of the Necropolis in Glasgow and added another filter and used one of Teri's great images which didn't even need colouring.

I'm sure you guys can come up with some wonderously freaky stuff so get to it.

HDH109 - Gods and Monsters

This week at Haunted Design House you have to use gods and/or monsters in your project.  You can draw inspiration from the Gods or the Monsters of Greek Mythology. You can also go for the classic movie  Monster or some bizarre divination fromtales of long ago.

We have fantastic prize of $10 gift certificate for the charm barn

I have went for th Erinyes who in greek mythology were the avengers also known as the infernal goddesses wreaking vengeance.

I used an image from the grahpics fairy and one from inspyrestash stock.  Tweaked them digitally and voila.  They (the other furis looking on with great glee) led by the main goddess in the pic who is there to reap a bit of vengeance upon this sap.

More Miniatures

Warning there are a lot of pics with this post.  The reason the dolls house furniture keeps changing is my four year old keeps taking it back off me so I have to go and pilfer something else when she isn't looking then she confiscates the next bit haha. x

Told you a lot of pics.  I think the reason I am doing so many cakes is I have been on a diet for almost a month now haha x

This is the mini version of the Necronomicon I did.  If you don't know what this is then you should watch The Evil Dead movies or Army of Darkness which I love.  (Maybe you have seen these and still don't know what it is haha co figures with me)

Join us......

dollhouse miniatures

This is my latest fad, thanks to Glo haha.  She said I should try it because I did a tiny pumpkin and boy she was right it is so much fun (did I really say that!).

Don't worry I haven't gone completely sappy!  I did make the necronomicon and the book of spells from hocus pocus but for some reason they don't want their picture taken.

This week at Haunted Design House the challenge is inner workings.  You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that either is quite literal (clock works or guts) or just simply decorate the inside of your project as well as the outside.

I decided to do a mini zombie coming out of a shell.  So he is the inner workings.

Anyway I am still having problems on some blogs posting comments.  I want to say thanks Marlene for your very detailed help you are a star.

Anyway let us see what you guys can come up with and you should see what the design team have come up with, total genius.  Not to mention Creepy Glowbuggs on Wed!
