Fundraising + Focus

I am not best known for finishing things.  Our garage and loft are full of projects not yet finished!!  I came across another of my drawings that I will have to get around to!

On the plus side I have finished a little snowman for the kids fundraiser at christmas.  I also did two other ornaments but haven't photographed them yet.

Wild Orchid Chalenge - Autumn Colours

I managed to make a little tag using some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers for the wild orchid challenge blog, some leaves and one of my pumpkin digis. I then added some posh metallic inks to the edges of the card.

Very simple but will come in handy in October me thinks.

Anyway two brill prizes up for grabs.

HDH151 - I'm Melting

WEll it is that time again where I prove that I really am a freak hiding in a normal persons skin!  This week at Haunted Design House the challenge is that has something to do with melted wax, candles, witches, or melted fleshThe possibilities really are endless with this oneIt's time to start tapping into your Halloween spirit, and create something seasonally spectacular

I first created a clay vampire mouth then pulled the clay to make it look like it was being melted.  I then painted a canvas black sprayed on some yellow, red, orange and a tinge of blue cosmic shimmer sprays to the background (which haven't shown up in the pic but what the who!)  I then painted using acrylics, some flames up in to the face.

I know, I know I am a freak and proud haha. 
So let us see how you interpret this challenge.  Be sure to see how the other minions have put their own personal twist on the challenge.

HDH150 - Oh My Gourd

Well this week at Haunted Design House we are being sponsored by Funworld's Floating Pumpkin HangersI knew there would be no pumpkins about at this time here so I opted to just make a project relating to a pumpkin but the others came up with some fabby stuff.

Mine was made with newclay (very rushed as I thought we were to sit it out if we weren't using a suspension kit.  I got that wrong oops.  So the paint job isn't so fab as I painted on wet newclay.  Enough of my rants anyways here is the culprit:

Well you have until sunday night to play along.

HDH149 - Bare Bones

This week at Haunted Design House the challenge is that uses NO dimensional embellishments. That's right.  No rhinestones, no pearls, no ribbons, no chipboard. Pretty much a clean and simple layout. It doesn't have to be a single layer card, but no bumpy bits.

I did some ATCs.  Four are painted and one is using a skull freebie from the Graphics Fairy.

This was painted on kraft cardstock with acrylics.  I messed up her neck but I was too tired to fix it.

This lovely lady is Linda the Grotesque.  There will be more of these .....

These are called trapped souls.  You can't really see the shimmer but the background was painted with cosmic shimmer inks.

The skull below is a freebie from the graphics fairy.  I got a red piece of paper and a blue one and sprayed different coloured inks and rubbed the papers in them to try and have an interesting background.

Brainz.  Yeah pretty shoddily painted but I am a lazy git!

This was painted on canvas and backed with an atc card.  Acrylics for Nosferatu (ins't he a honey).

I have actually done more atcs but am crap at photographing them so just gave up for another day.

I can't wait to see what bare boned projects you guys come up with.

Smudger Challenge 6 - Reduce Reuse Recycle.

This month at the  smudger challenge blog we thought it would be good to do a recycle challenge.  Create anything with at least one recycled product used.

I have recently started doing some ATCs after seeing one of my blogging buddies cool cards.  Anyway my recycling is I used the packaging from the kids school shirts to make the ATCs.

All images used are from the smudgetastic digi site.

This ATC has a flame which has been done on shrink plastic and coloured with promarkers/copics.  The background for that is a nestie and I have put various inks and shimmers and mised them for a flame effect.

This guy has a stake and hammer at the side and a coffin that I made.

Anyway would be great if you could join in the challenge this month at Smudger Challenge Blog, we only had three entries last month boo hoo hoo, hehe.
