SMEARED AND SMUDGED APRIL MEMBERS BLOG HOP

Welcome to the APRIL BLOG HOP for members of the SMEARED and SMUDGED FORUM.
We were asked to create anything we wanted...but we had to use METAL somewhere or somehow in our project, and not just brads or eyelets.
I salvaged my Nans old aluminium venetian blinds when my Dad took 'em down 2 years ago and they have been propped up in the garden shed just waiting for 'something'.
I thought i'd try to use 'em with my Sir Tim dies...... it worked... although i completely ruined my Sir Tim atc die doing this project......GRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
Now ..... those who know me..... you might not wanna go any further.... be prepared for a stomach churning, vomit enducing moment..... i felt i really should warn you all..... this little cage is just the begining......


Below is the blog roll list............. you might just wanna go on to the next person.... skip this project of mine.....in my defence i have been poorly.... and i think i am now really sick.....

....YOU were warned!

I am still not sure where this came from, but its what was in my head..... and one of my girls thinks it LOVELY!....the other has taken the 'juice' for hours!
I used a digi image from SMEARED INK, SMITTEN set....coloured with promarkers.

I used papers from my stash..... fussy cut loads of the flowers, letters, leaves and lace from said papers .... inked and distressed edges.....






I die cut a bird, leaves, butterflies and a cage from Nans blinds.... then used embossing folders with them... then sanded 'em.


































I have used some tatty ribbon, an Eiffel tower charm and some gems.....






GIRLY OVERLOAD!






I shall enter this into the following challenges....

Macabre Mondays

Sorry i have been MIA for over a week, i have been rather poorly, but on the mend now, and hopefully back into my DT stuff soon. Its Monday so its gotta be MACABRE..... Ok, macabre fans... your challenge this week: "Zombie Apocalypse" You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based zombie project in a suitably macabre fashion. They are coming to get you... well you might be redeemed if you come up with a suitably macabre zombie creation............ ............ this is ANDREA.... named after my HDH teamie and challenge host. She started life as a cute porcelain doll 23 years ago...

...............but now has been transformed into .... APOCALYPTIC ANDREA...... with a lump of half eaten heart in one hand and entrails in the other. Her skin has that nasty long dead gungy green hue, with vivid red lesions and weeping puss.

Her clothes and hair are getting quite tattered and dirty from her frequent jaunts to and from her grave. She has dreadful weeping wounds on both her legs and as you can see the flesh is becoming vile and putrid.


For ANDREA's makeover i used alcohol inks on the porcelain and eyes....the lunch in her hands is modeled from pva.


Her clothes have been altered and remade after dying with strong tea.... the lace on her dress has drips of nail polish blood on the front.

I had great fun altering Andrea over 4 days.... and have another doll already in a state of undress.

Please come and join in if you get the chance.

I shall enter the two challenges below, and hopefully no one will be to horrified.
