Start of notorious (?) November !!!

Ohh October, how shall I miss you.
What a fabulous amount of brilliant art
it brought us to see ... thank you all for
hopping here and joining the challenge
of no-cute creations.
I hope you'll be back this month.

Speekking of creations ... creatures ...
creepy things ... 
and how about ZOMBIES


October is just so great time to find stuff 
... interesting stuff even is supermarkets...
like these plastic zombie heads that somehow
ended up to my crafting table to be cut
paint and clued to 3D picture.


and here's a little "how to" collage


-------------------------------

Asylum Anne got seriously buried under a flood of new tupperware - how scary is that!!!! 
 Her last glance back to last night included Paper Artsy too, 
with their truly appropriate text for Ike's Art digis 
Grim Reaper, Birthday Rainbow, and Bad Day:




--------------------------------

And what would be a treat for a one
player that uses our froggy to link her / his
creation(s) to our challenge?

Pipistrello

I don't do coloring books,
the images are way too big for
me to "handle" , but then I saw
this book with Jasmine Becket-Griffith
and I knew I wanted to try.
Gorgeous images!


Here's the first image, I colored her with Prismacolors
and then altered the photo with Ribbet.

Please link your art HERE,
this month there is a change to win
this die:
 I grabbed some of my scraps the other night
and played with my die, :).


As Kim so well said it:
To win it ya gotta be in it!

everything nice, I hope you guys will give us a busy month
linking all your fabulous Halloween and Day of the Dead and
other artsy, creepy, dark, strange  ---- well anything but cute ---
creations to us to come and see.

I made a skully card to honor the season


Using black inks, alcohol inks and VLV stamp


And lets see what Anne has for our delight:

To never...

Insist people respect your body - if your child doesn't want to hug Uncle Bob or Aunty Jane, don't force them, teach them they are in control of what is done with their body 
and back them up every time.  Otherwise, maybe...
Gallows stamp ButterSide Down
Text die Spellbinders sent me instead of what I really ordered - not my scene, but I've put my own spin on it now!
Blank Page Muse stamps - ATCoin back, Steampunk Gentleman (wings only), owl & moon
The skeleton & spooky tree-house scene are unbranded dies.

And yes we meant to scream out the title of the post! Too bad the letters can't be BIGGGGGEER!



The winner of the challenge for the great Fall month
of October, will be getting very seasonal die: 
Layered Jack-O-Latern

To win it ya gotta be in it! Show us your October fun, we can't wait! Trick or Treat what say you?? What's your personal art outlet? Stamps, Inks, Paints, Words? Bring us your story...

Jumping on the Bandwagon

It's so easy to See no evil, Hear no evil, maybe even Speak no evil.
AND... we are becoming very PC-aware, even scared to speak at all lest we offend some minority.  BUT... there is one Speak that has arisen very publicly lately, so here's my spin on the #Metoo Movement:



The sweet little angel skeleton is from Mad Rat Rubber Stamps.  (oops, did I just use that word "sweet"???)
All others are from Lost Coast Designs

Please feed my darkness: add your sooo not-cute, dark art with the linky to 1 September post (if I got it right!), and one of you will get some ghoulappy mail :)
