DAY 31...HAPPY HALLOWEEN....with MACABRE MONDAY

Welcome to the last day of our month long HALLOWEEN celebration..... an amazing 31day blog hop..... including todays project i have actually made and posted 56 things for this month....... WOW! To day we have a new challenge at MACABRE MONDAY and it is.......
Heinously Haunted Houses
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piecethat features a haunted house as the focus.This IS Haunted Design House after all :) The more decrepit, deteriorating or disturbing... the better!
I was a bit stumped by this...... but ended up making a mini album/book...... i cut 4 different house shapes from thick card and covered them with papers from my stash......
i used stamped images from loads of different companies to decorate the pages...
ribbons to hold it all together, rub-ons, a few stickers and german scrap around the roof edges.






Sorry there are so many pictures but i wanted you to see i didnt cheat and just do the front and back....i did think about it but thought i'd better be good and do a complete project as its the last day. So come on folks, we minions at HDH want to see your HAUNTED HOUSES this week.... and there is a wonderful prize from the mistress herself.













I Also today i want to share with you 2x skulls my girls have decorated for Halloween....they painted them and used stickers, stamps, gel pens and gems..... these now stand on the window sill beside the front door so the trick or treaters tonight can see them.









I shall enter the following challenges

  9. BD,
    Your HH is just to FAB! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
    I love all the images and embllies you have used!
    Your skulls are to die for! I just saw some of those paper machae skulls in my local craft store and almost bought one just to see if I could make one look cool like you do. But I didn't end up buying it. Maybe I should go back and see if they are on clearance now that's it's Halloween LOL. Anyways, I know yours will be better, cuz these 2 skulls just rock! WONDERFUL job on all your projects!
    Happy Halloween!
    Peace,
    KristyLee
