Halloween Hanging

Please click on image to enlarge
Made for the Swap Mel is doing on my forum.. I had made a glass ornament thing and it went a little wrong. I kinda thought ... "its OK... it will do!" then I saw Gillian's entry so back to the drawing board...!!! lol
Thank you for the proverbial kick up the bum Gillian ... It made me actually apply myself :-)
Autumn is my favorite time of year.. I love the colours but also its a starting point for all the celebrations.. birthdays Halloween... Guy Fawkes ...Christmas..
Halloween is my favorite Autumn celebration as we always have fancy dress.. pumpkin soup and "dooking" for nuts. because I always think of halloween when autumn turns up I am going to enter this for the "craft away a sunday" challenge blog

MADJAK stamps

Please click on image to enlarge for full detail.
My Stamps arrived from Madjak recently and I got stuck in today at last. I have started with the Familiar set. I actually went to my craft room to make something sparkly and glittery but ended up with vintage (again) lol.. this has a glimmer mist and perfect pearls background as well as crackle paints and acrylics. so although its not got glitter .. it does glow in the right light..
I am pushing this up my blog as I would like to enter it into Mixed Media Mondays weekly Challenge. The theme there this wek is the colours Blue and Purple.. I think there is enough subtle hints of purple for this to count! ( I hope)

One powerful Hour

I had the honour of being guest designer to my lovely Friend Caro's (Cmoh) challenge blog, One powerful hour. this is also for the swap on my forum!

I am very fond of the alcohol ink on acetate technique showing images underneath. I made this collage and although it was OK on its own, adding the layer of acetate over the top made it richer and more antique looking and really added a bit of depth!

I hope you all have a bit of a go at getting your alcohol inks out this week. I don't have a lot of time for crafting right now so making something that took under an hour was a great chance for me to fit something in. this actually only took about 45mins including cutting out collage image time!.Go on , have a go and join in!
PS... errrmmm sorry if you came in to look and you hate the old paris theme and that tower lol.. (you know who you are ) i should have issued a warning
