HDH166-Stephen King Knightmare

I have participated again in the two weekly challenge over at Haunted Design House.
Our next Macabre Monday challenge is :
Stephen King Knightmare
Now not the sort of guy you would use as a muse to tell your kids their bedtime stories but for this challenge lets get sick and twisted and use the unhealthy mind of Stephen King as inspiration.  You can use his books, movies and comic books as your muse.
For my  contribution to the challenge I decided to take inspiration for the ATC I created from one of his Books.
The ATC was cut from mount board using the Tim Holtz ATC die. The main image was created in photoshop CS3 extended using a fabulous new digital kit Spiritus Mortis from Itkupilli Imagenarium available over at Deviant Scrap. This kit is full of delightfully gothic georgeousness and right up my street. The image was then printed out and attached to the mount board ATC base. Misery Personified.................. Another great challenge and enjoyable subject matter too.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.

Tag! Your it....The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge.

I have been an admirer of Lily's Images ( The Octopode Factory ) for quite awhile now and have finally gotten around to playing with them and what better way to start than a challenge hosted by the lady herself over at The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge Blog. This weeks theme:- Make a Tag any size, any shape any image. Well the very first image I ever purchased was The Raven and am so in love with it. So that was the image I decided to use for my tag. printed out and coloured with Copics, something very new to me, but am pleased with how things turned out. Mixed media background was cut to fit the mount board tag which was cut using the Tim Holtz tag Die. Distress Inked around the edges and a piece of black organza ribbon threaded through the loophole to finish.
Had fun with this one, will be back to play again.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.

Quoth the Raven Quest 20- Pick any Three.

I have participated once again in the current challenge over at Quoth The Raven. A site that I enjoy visiting and participating when I have the time in their Fabulous challenges. This time around is to pick any three items from the list provided and create what your heart desires as long as it relates to the Master of The Dark Arts- Edgar Allan Poe.
Choose thee ANY 3 items and create something which doth please thy artistic hankerings :-) But remember - thy offering MUST be related to Edgar Allan POE to be worthy of attaining the Prize. 
Bring ye not thy slushy and mushy if it be not related to POE in some instance, for thou shalt not be rewarded.

For My offering to the Master I have created a Dark Journal to keep note of all my Darkest Dreams and Desires. A Journal that has been Hand bound, Inked, Stamped and Grunged to within an inch of it's life. My three Items of choice were:- Poe- a picture of. Metal:- an Ornate Frame to house the picture of the Master and the closure of the journal and Skulls:- A Skull perched on a pile of books. Just had to throw a Raven in there too. You can't have Poe without a Raven right.......................
