Spooky Coaster

Here's todays spooky Creation, just love that raven!
Here's an altered coaster, that I made real quick :-) This was Easy to make, I just painted acrylic paints on to the base, then used Gel Medium to add the book pages and chipboard. Then I added the raven and the bones.
It was a real treat for me to finally get some seriously altering halloween fun on!!!! So going to enter this spooky coaster over at Simon says Stamp Monday Challenge - Treats- any Kind!!

Halloween Tag

Aside from todays Vintage Christmas card for the latest Craft Room Challenge- which you can see here.
I'm going to be having a spooky Halloween Blog week :-)

First up is a tag to a new challenge to me, that I found via one of my Teamies Hazel Harler ( you should check out her blog ) the new challenge is Speed Craft Challenge - such fun- and great way to kick mojo into a speedy gear! Their current Challenge Theme is halloween.

You have 15 mins to create anything crafty, and you can have your supplies ready :-)

here's my supplies Ready:

A Bit messy.... I'm a messy creator ;-)

Here's my finished Halloween tag, I still had just under 2 mins on the clock left, background created with ink and sprays and stencils, stamps from Crafty Secrets, and cut outs from Retro Art Cafe, and bits from an old book.

Here's my phone stop watch :

I think I'll definitely be playing along in the future :-)

I'm finally getting some of my Mojo back, to get into the studio and just create for fun, so there will be some more active blogging from me this week :-)

Such fun  creating this colourful ATC. Looks like their DT did too :-)

Dia de los muertos

I used a new to me little stamp set from Inkadoo, for these sugar skulls, I've then coloured and doodled.
