It is still MONDAY..... so its MACABRE.... and we have a new challenge for ya......
..................... "The Mark of the Beast"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project using SIX of something three times! For example, 6 gems, 6 layers, & 6 words... that kind of thing. >:)

this had me a little confused.... ( it dont take much these days....) .... then i read the instructions again..properly... and made another book!
The cover has 6x brads/paper fasteners on it.... the word 'BEASTS' has 6x letters.... and inside i have used 6x different images.
The book is made from scrap mount board, covered in sculpture paper that i made.... i used a Tim Holtz book plate thingy on the front.
The pages are sewn, in the traditional way.
I have used 6 different DARK IMAGES from TELLENS PLACE.... coloured with a 4b drawing pencil, sepia sketching pencil and a chinese white pencil.
The pages have all been ink distressed, and aged. Below are the 6 images....

I love these dragon type images, sooooo much!

The last photo shows me holding my little book.... i really do like working on a small scale, i just wish my eyes were as good as they used to be!

I shall also enter this into the following challenges... ANYTHING GOES ANYTHING GOES ABAC... ALTER SOMETHING ... i hope this counts although its made from scratch. SHOW US YOUR STYLE.... this is so 'my style'! USE AT LEAST 3 STAMPS DISTRESSING MASCULINE.... it could be.... FAVOURITE COLOUR ...mine is BLACK! ANYTHING GOES ANYTHING GOES

I hope you all get the chance to play along this week....666.... I SWEAR ONE OF MY TWINS HAS IT TATTOOED ON HER SOMEWHERE!
