If you do, hop here and let us see your weird/ alternative/dark project;

It's Autumn here, though we've had a couple of summer cyclones pass through this last fortnight.  So between rains, I'm out harvesting ahead of winter.
In a jar, place 2 dragon teeth, a piece of tyvek coral, and a sprig of tansy.  Drizzle in some acacia tree sap.

Add human bones, 2 witches captured at full moon, a sprig of rosemary, a sprig of wormwood and a string of micro-gourds.

Cap the jar, and shake for 5 minutes every New Moon.

Set Pantrygoyl over it to guard contents from black cats who might be looking for their witches.  The crown makes him feel important, and ensures his reliability to the task.

Plus he (unusually) has a fine head of moss-hair, which better not blow away!
The 'goyle is made from Polymer clay by a friend of mine, Elli Jenks (also of Rubber Bandit stamps and Brightsea Village fame)
His crown, Sizzix Twisted Edge die, heat embossed after curving into shape.
The skellie and witches from Silver Crow Creations.

Your weird dark and creepy makes deserve a wider audience too, so add them here for us to shiver over!  Even though E.Frog is very busy splashing in many many deep puddles, he knows when you're creating!

April and Open for Business Again!

Fabulousness again this month! 
Team is running even wilder this month 
(Spring is in the air), but we do have a little something
to give one of the players that dare to meet our green linky froggy.

This Steampunk polymer stamp, size about 5,5cm x 11cm,
cool, eh?

Here's what Granne DiD for this month

Sentiment is in Finnish and says "Hi Dude!"

CT Nan here with a 4 x 6 inch flat canvas painted in acrylic paints in the steampunk style with some great looking old light bulbs!  And of course my guide for this painting was the Art Sherpa on Youtube and many other places on the internet!  I added a bird-like flying machine and the sentiment "Steampunk" from the stamp sheet "A Wing Above the Rest" from Sin City Stamps!

Check out the Sin City Fan Club Page and join for chances to win 
stamps!We will be looking out for you!  Like and join us for loads of fun!

From CT Anne:  A wreath  - for the door knocker, for a grave, for a Memorial service.  In NZ we remember both Easter - Jesus death & resurrection - and on 25th April, the anniversary of the day our troops landed at Gallipoli so disastrously in WW1.  It is also Autumn, when many fruits are being harvested.

Started with wire, wrapping it around itself, adding bead loops, threading through skulls and a mix of real & fake bones.  Next was to curl wire-stemmed flowers and fruit between objects.  Then tie lengths of a bobbly multi-coloured eyelashy yarn between each element.
The paper flowers were colour-adjusted with a few bursts of various Lindy Stamp Gang sprays.  Flowers, skeleton (love his red-eye) and fruit came from Silver Crow Creations.  Everything else was randomly-acquired stash (yep, skulls came on strings from retail and second-hand)

Come back later in the month to find out more about the snakes St Patrick cast out of Ireland back around 462 AD.

Post your makes below - Evil Froggy won't admit it, but we've still got goodies as a prize for the weirdest, creepiest, oddest, UNcute posting.
