DAY #8 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, SMUDGY ANTICS and MACABRE MONDAY.

Welcome to #Day #8..... one whole week into the 31 days of Halloween.... the blog list is on my side bar, please come along and check out the incredible inspiring work that these wicked bloggers create.... every single day.

                    Today i have a double offering.... two pages for the book i hope to have finished for the last week of October. Both using SMEARED INK images.... real rubber(YAY... check out the new rubber club...) and digi.
After yesterdays bright creepy cute offering...i'm feeling much more myself with these two dark, haunting , macabre pages.
                          The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics this week is
"Movie Madness".

Art is inspired by many things.  We want to see what kind of inspiration you can get from a movie.  Being October, I would suggest a scary or creepy movie of some sort.  If you insist upon making a Tinkerbell project, which will surely result in projectile vomiting on LADY B's part, then feel free to do so.  
*We do ask that you state the name of your movie of choice in case it is not evident to others looking at your project.

Important News: Smeared Ink will be offering high quality, deeply etched, unmounted sheets (8.5" x 11") of rubber stamps again for those in the Smeared Ink Rubber Club.
Click here for details!
 The movie i based my page on is THE RAVEN..... i do love Poe and any chance i get to be inspired by this work i'll take.


                    I used digi images from SMEARED INK 'QUOTH THE RAVEN' and a real stamp (RAVEN)  from the same set but in rubber, which will be available again to the rubber stamp club members very soon. I coloured the whole piece in with promarkers and ink.... loads of black ink to distress the edges and then matted it onto my book page. Hope you'll join us this week...... there are millions of films to be inspired by.
                             
                              Now for the new challenge at HDH MACABRE MONDAYS

"Bats in the Belfry"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has anything to do with a bats.  Think belfries, church steeples and all round general battiness!

 The images are all SMEARED INK, coloured with promarkers and ink.... lots of lovely black ink to distress the edges. The moon is just a drawn on circle coloured in....i'd really like a large moon stamp.... i have smallish ones but sometimes you need something bigger.
I hope you'll join in with both of these challenges this week....
