Here we are on DAY # 13 of this month long hop hosted by
The full blog roll is on my side bar where it shall remain all month long.
Details of prizes, rules etc can be found HERE
Today I have a bit of a bumper post...
Here is todays calender page, made for the new challenge at
the challenge is ANYTHING GOES as long as its  Hallowe'en.
 I have used Teri's gorgeous LA LLORONA
You have a whole month to enter with the chance of winning some of Teri's superb images.
I kept the colouring on this really simple as the image needs nothing really.
I just used shades of lilac, pink and pale blue pencils to give it an even more ghostly feel.
Please come and join us this month...we love to see your dark creations.
 I have also got a project on the DE-STEMPELWINKEL blog today that you'll see later in the hop.
I have started altering a board book from one of our pound stores....
I only have all the pages covered and the cover completed...DUH! I really should have done better!
 HDH MACABRE MONDAY is now into the second week of our challenge...
I have altered some wooden crosses.... 2 can be seen at DE-STEMPELWINKEL,
so I won't show them here... you'll see them with the book cover later in the hop.
 I covered the crosses with clay...stamped into it, and baked 'em in the oven.
I gave each a slightly different paint paint finish.
You'll see the 5 I altered at HDH...3X NECKLACES, 2X KEYRINGS.
You have until Sunday to link up your 'wood' project with us...
we minions really love seeing what dark creations you come up with.
Well thats it... Thank you for stopping by today.... see you again tomorrow I hope for DAY #14.


  1. I think you must not sleep to get so much done.
    The ghostly hints of colrs that look translucent (nearly transparent) give it a very eerie feel.

    The Poe key (and the others) are amazing.
