Halloween Horror

Hi everyone! 

Welcome back to a new month here at Our Creative Corner. Laura here, hosting a new 
challenge for you...

We had so many entries for last months 'Shades of Autumn' challenge - Thanks so much to all who took part - Julia will be here in the 4th with her winners post! Don't miss it!

Before we go onto the challenge details for October, I just wanted to let
 you know about this months Sponsor.


Nicecrane Designs are kindly offering a very generous $20 voucher to spend at the store! 
Definitely a prize worth winning!

And what do we want you to make this month?

 It is Halloween Month....Forget all about the cute cats and smiling pumpkins.... 

We want....

For this Halloween share with us some horror inspired creations that 
are sure to send shivers down our spines. 
Bring out your most grotesque stamps and embellishments....
....or perhaps take on the challenge of finding a way to transform pretty stamps into something macabre.
Reach for the grungiest colours and textures....
Come over to the dark side of Halloween

Can you scare us?


Let's see what my talented team made to inspire you this month!

A very gaudy pink mirror decoration....made into grungy horror!


No smiling pumpkins?... Well, this candle holder is quite smiling 
but in a strange way, don't you feel?



I'm not one for dark Halloween imagery and colours, 
so my project this month isn't a 'traditional' horror filled one! 
I rather like my zombie..... can you have a cute zombie?! :)


Oh, how I love the macabre!  Throw in a little dark humor, too, 
and you've got my art journal page to darkly celebrate the season of horror.  



My idea was to make a little wooden frame with humor. 
She says, I will call you -  yes, my one and only love - I will wait.
and he waits, and waits and ..... and if he is not dead, he is still waiting today ;-)
that's horror , or ???



I used my scary craft to turn a regular notebook into a scary ol' "book of potion" 
where the recipes of all kinds of spooky concoctions remain hidden
 until you can cast a spell to unlock its scary secrets!



OPEN THE DOOR......if you dare!



Perfect challenge to use Mini Halloween stamp set …
I made two little cards, with spooky skull and spiders…scary, isn’t it?


When you live in an old Scottish Manse (as I do) this is
about as spooky as I go! Mind you I would not want to meet
 this chappie (or the spider ….) on the stairs here in the
middle of the night!



I needed no encouragement to join Laura on the dark side! 
Look past those skulls and see that face in the background
. . . . . . . scared yet?  
(apologies if it's too dark for some)


WOW!!! amazing creations! I am sure you can find some 'Horror' Inspiration here!

Come and join in this month and you could be our randomly drawn prize winner
