31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN #5 DAY #1


Welcome to day #1 of the 31 days of Halloween hosted by
SMEARED AND SMUDGED.
During this month long amazing event the full blog roll will be at the top of my side bar.
For all the info on how to win daily prizes and the HUGE grand prize please visit TERRA'S BLOG.
I hope you are seated comfortably as this is a long picture heavy post....
I have the honour of making Octobers calender for DE-STEMPELWINKEL.... if you're hopping you see the whole project when you get to DE-STEMPELWINKEL DT BLOG.
This is door #1
Inside door #1.... who else but Mr Poe.... this is my 4th time doing 31 days and i make Poe my 1st piece.... sort of like a tradition thing :) On the picture below you can see some of the other doors.... i shall be honest.... NOT all have anything behind them yet..... but they will have by the time they need to be opened.
The appartures are ATC size and about 1 inch deep.
This is the top.... a much larger space for Halloween .
Now today is also the start of the new challenge at ALTERED ECLECTICS, please go check out the challenge....its anything ALTERED.
so i have altered a candle holder and some cheapo plastic skulls.... 
I added little clay skulls to the holder and gave it a new paint job, the plastic skulls got lots of paint applied to get rid of the gaudy paint they had on them.... they'll be used later in the month on a project i'm sure.

Finally we at HDH are also celebrating the run up to HALLOWEEN..... taking part in the 
today we have a montage of projects the minions have made recently including my inverted cross complete with skeleton. Remember to check out the blog regularly.... you'll be in for a MACABRE TREAT.
 

Thats finally it for my day #1 post..... bet you're relieved!
See you tomorrow for DAY #2.
Dont forget the full blog roll is at the top of my side bar.
