In her own skin



Stamping on teabag, little coloring and then re-cycling a

I like it better that way, :)

Shake Your Booty

Freaked out by all that pinkness, chocolate and pierced hearts on Valentine Day,
not to mention all the chocolate coming up for Easter,
we're recovering with a tag and plenty of bones to rattle the (heart)beat out.


Over a shaving cream background, the dancing silhouettes are from A Stamp in the Hand
The winged skeleton and border are from Smeared Ink's Skelly Christmas.  The bird is part of a Lost Coast Designs stamp, and the arms from Bloobel (via joggles.com).  Strange how not all of these stamps are still available.  I guess their bones disintegrated faster than their rubber.

So Anne is dancing towards spring 
... hmm since she is living "upside down"
she might be dancing towards Autumn.

We had our first winner this year,
congratulations to the Vivian yet again.
AND the great news is, that we have these 
goodies ready to go for a next winner
as soon as 40 entries shows on our 
froggy linky (at the right side of the blog) ->

No Half Measures.

  Is the glass half full, or half empty, and depending on the contents, will it really matter?
Maybe what really matters is that at time of posting, we only need 3 more dark offerings, to award a prize.  Only THREE!!!

Journal page used a Seth Apter/Stencil Girl stencil, stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Paper Artsy, Andy Skinner

Belated Birthday Poe!

Life is full of intentions... good and bad.  So Poe's birthday was celebrated in January, and I started... but missing the blog hop deadline, it morphed into Other Innuendo
in her diaphanous mesh dress, and over-stated headdress.
And some digi beasties got in on the act, all dressed in their shiniest Lindy's warpaint
Whilst a Raven (at last! a Poe reference!), heat-embossed, clatters his shiny beak, and speaks that immortal line...

 And of course, the Cautionary note spelled out to Poe by the raven and actress...

Background includes Stencil Girl Tribal Leaves,  stamps from Carabelle which I can't find on thier web site, but got from here,  Andy Skinner's Birds and Bones, Blank Page Muse, digi stamp  Bizarre Beasties from Leigh SB Designs.  The two trees are Cheery Lynn dies, now known as My Makers Movement.

Hopefully your feathers have been ruffled thoroughly, and set you down another dark art path - do share!  We have Treats LOL

All you need is love

Yay, it's February already and
in norther side of the globe, 
we are getting more daylight and energy.

February brings the Valentine's day,
and I thought I'd share here a DT pieces

with Gecko Galz digital papers and acetate on top.
On First one I embossed the acetate 
and on second one I stamped.

Do link up you art to our permanent link,
we'd love to come and see and
when there is 20 entries, someone will be having
this cool stamp:

Bridge-Building and the December 2018 Winner!

Welcome back to one and all! Today we have an awesome journal layout from Asylum Anne.
Please read to the bottom and find our December Winner, too!


Three years ago, I broke a tooth so thoroughly it had to be crowned.  A few months ago, it fell out, got cemented back in and told 1-2 years before something more would have to be done.In that no-work season between Christmas and New Year, I left a message on my dentist's phone... guess what?  Yep.  I got seen the first day they re-opened.  He cemented it back as a temporary measure only, and once "The Lab" opens, moulds, extractions and design of a bridge will get under way.   For those of you who shiver and quake at the mere though of going, I bet your mouth resembles the Kaisercraft candelabra below (split to provide upper & lower teeth.)
Isn't that a great dentist's challenge? And of course, You Can Trust Me... I'm a Dentist.  So there's the story within the story.  See you all at The Murder House!

Much as I love my dentist, there are times when "building a bridge" just doesn't fix life:

There are so many ways for the bridge to "fail".
The page started with Stencil Girl subliminal skulls, incorporated stamps from Blank Page Muse, Mad RatAndy Skinner and various die cuts.


I can thoroughly empathize with Anne and I do dread a dental appointment, how about you?

Our fantabulous WINNER for December 2018 is...
ready PLAYER 1----- Tina with your wicked straw topper! Please email be your snail mail info so some happy mail can start the journey! Email dreamindarknessblog@gmail.com

Don't forget, we are waiting with bated breath to give the 20th dark sharing above, some goodies.
