Wicked Halloween Swap

This is a little spooky table top witches hat I made for a swap hosted by altered art junkies.
It will be just one little goodie my swap partner will receive from me for this wicked swap. The hat is made from black linen and lightly stuffed and all kinds of spooky embellishments added. It is hard to tell from the photo, but on the front is a glittery spider and a distressed hang tag that says "Hocus Pocus". It was a lot of fun, I just might have to make me one too!

A S Haunted house swap

This 7 page chipboard book set from alpha stamps was the foundation of the Haunted Halloween swap
which I am participating in. All or most of the images were from alpha stamps. All of the "pages"
will go to different artist and I'll also get 7 pages from different artist to complete the "set" to make
up your own haunted house book. It was fun to do, but also difficult because it was a vendor required
swap, I am use to just going where my muse takes me. Had to think about this one!

These were the first two I made for this swap. These were images used from
a collage sheep I purchased from alpha stamps. I can't make anything flat
so I popped out the circle and wizard (hard to tell in a photo) with foam squares and
placed over orginal image. The second image is a wizard that I again embellished and
added deminson .

New Background

I thought I'd add a bit of Halloween to my blog for the season. Think I will do the same with all the seasons like I do for my front entryway! Enjoy

Halloween Rules Tag Book

I made this tag book last year, and I think it is my favorite. I used classic horror pictures that I did image transfer
techniques to the tags and found some quirky little halloween rules to use as a theme for this little tag book. Just couldn't help posting! Since the pictures are small and you couldn't quite read the rules, I have posted each with their picture. Enjoy

Halloween Rule #1

When it appears you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it is really dead!
Posted by Picasa
Halloween Rule #2

Don't search the basement, especially, if the power has just gone out!
Posted by Picasa
Halloween Rule #3

Don't take anthing from the dead!
Posted by Picasa
Halloween Rule #4

If you find a town which looks deserted, it's probably for a reason. Take a hint and stay away!
Posted by Picasa
Halloween Rule #5

If your car runs out of gas at night, DO NOT go the the nearby deserted looking house to phone for help!

Halloween Rule #6

If you are running from the monster, expect to trip or fall at least twice, more if you are from the female persuasion.
Also note that, despite the fact you are running as the monster is merely shambling along, it is still moving fast enough
to catch up with you!

Halloween Rule #7

Beware of strangers bearing tools: such as chainsaws,staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, lawnmowers,
butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any device made from deceased companions!

Halloween rule #8

If your compainions suddenly exhibit uncharacteristic behavior, such as: hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing
hairiness, and so on, get away from them as fast as possible!
Posted by Picasa
Halloween Rule #9

If you are searching for what caused a noise, and find out it isn't the cat. Leave the room immediatly if you value your life!

Halloween Rule # 10

Stay away from certain geographical locatins, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street,Transylvania, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine!
