MACABRE MONDAY

It's monday and we have a brand new challenge for you..... ands its......
................................................................"Dastardly Divas!"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project that includes a diva.
We want to see women who still look fabulous even when performing acts so vile and vicious that Dracula himself would blush. Lipgloss and bloodlust, it's a winning combination!
We also have the PERFECT sponsor for this challenge! Barbara Jensen is an artist who creates digi stamps, clip art, tubes and other exquisite goodies to play with. The winner of this challenge will be chosen by Barbara herself, and you'll get to choose any THREE of her digi stamps as your prize!
I was given IVY to work with....... and started off thinking...'poison'.... but decided to do (Pagan)Eostra, as yesterday was the 1st day of spring.


I had a wooden sun/flower shaped mirror waiting to be altered.....i removed the mirror, painted the frame , green, then sponged dark green and black over it once dry. The centre circle is stamped coloured and triple embossed.... the stone circle stamp is from Non- sequitur, i covered chipboard letters in sculpture paper i made, and cut tiny flowers from it.

I used 'silk' ivy leaves to cover most of the frame..... if you look closely there are also some tiny 'gold' metal leaves, gems, and glass-like flowers .....................




Ivy doesnt look 'DASTERDLY' but most people.... (not me i hasten to add as i am a closet Pagan) seem a little worried by Paganism, and associate it purely with the occult and witchcraft.
I hope you can find time to play along with us this week..
and i shall enter this into the following challenges,
