Welcome to Hotel Hell! This is Deviant Scrap´s latest Designer Collaboration, and there are some really creepy kits to explore!

Autumn Impressions

Debra´s theme for her tip-in book is "Autumn Impressions", and her format is 5 x 8 inches vertically.
The first thing that came to my mind was Rilke´s famous autumn poem, but finally I decided to use Emily Bronte´s poem on my book spread. I added a tag with Rilke´s poem though ...

Decisions, Decisions ...

"Transport" is this week´s SPA challenge theme, and I couldn´t resist using my new Lost Coast stamp for my entry.

Big City Amusement

To accompany last week´s Postage People ATCs as a hostess gift, I´ve made this cut and paste postcard. All images are from Tumble Fish Studio´s latest kit "Shades of Red" that Marsha published while I was on vacation - couldn´t resist playing with these fun images! (Only the hat is from her kit "Noggin Toppers".)

Meet the Addams Family ...

I´ve had a lot of fun today making this Gothic themed postcard for Renee! I´ve used a painting from German painter Carl Blechen for the background, sanded and painted it and added some collaged and stamped elements.

Home Is Where the Witch Is

These are my ATCs for the ARTchix Halloween ATC swap - hope they´ll reach our hostess this time (as my entry for the last swap got lost in the mail).

Chalkboard ATCs

I´ve made some ATCs using the chalkboard technique just for fun - I really like this effect for Halloween themed artwork. If you want to learn more about this technique, I recommend Daniela Rogall´s Youtube video and the upcoming issue of her magazine "Just Stamps"!

Postage People - Halloween Edition!

I seems that every project I´m starting right now turns out into some kind of Halloween stuff in the end ... So when I made my ATCs for a Postage People ATC swap at Paper Traders, I ended with some really spooky ATCs, even some faces that turned green.

Flight of Fancy Halloween

Tracey from Hidden Vintage Studios has done it again: a wonderful collab with Hollie from Holliewood Studios! This one is called "Flight of Fancy Halloween", and I´ve had much fun combining Tracey´s characters with Hollie´s backgrounds, frames, and other Halloween stuff.
My first three samples are digital collages, and the last picture shows a cut and paste ATC.

By the Light of the Moon

This year´s Halloween swap at Red Lead is themed "By the Light of the Moon Altered Tall Tag". I´ve just finished my three tags and can´t wait now to see what the others come up with! You can still join this swap, the tags aren´t due before Sept 30. We use large tags for this swap (4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches).

Mischief Makers

Hidden Vintage Studios have come out with a fun new Halloween kit today called "Mischief Makers". As always, you can use it for digital creations as well as cut and paste artwork. To illustrate that, I´ve made the digital sample above (including elements from Rucola Designs, Altered Emporium and Holliewood Studios) and the cut and paste ATCs below (including elements from Tumble Fish Studio and Holliewood Studios).
