tis near Halloween

Hello everyone,

I have worked so far ahead for my DT's that I actually have time to play ! It is great too... It gave me time to get my head around the YouTube thing, yes, I am on YouTube; 3 videos up to now !

I also love to play in some of the many challenges that are around and the one on the VivaLasVegaStamps blog is one I really like. Even though I am on the DT, I am still allowed to play, how cool is that !

So here is my interpretation of the inspiration board.. (photo of the inspiration board is below)

I really like how it came out. I used a piece of 7Dots Studio paper from the Nature Walk collection designed by DeeDee Catron. I added some Distress Ink around the edges and some randome stamping. I used part of the birds on a wire stamp and part of the sentiment. Dracula was just stamped on the page. I added some text from the book by Ray Bradbury called "Something wicked this way comes". I tried to read it once but thought not much of it so it ended up in my stash which is great when Halloween is around the corner... 
I used a lid of a pot of gel medium and red acrylic paint for the ring and my finger and the same paint to go around the sentiment. 

This art journal page is based on this inspiration board :

and the following words:

bonesskeletonsgarden gnomes, nymphs, goblinsghoulsbatscreatures, critters, vampiresgraveyards, catacombs, dead, death, halloweenspooky, creepy, and more.

So, there you have it !
