Sadly I do not decorate for Halloween any more, or any Holidays for that matter. As I can never get any help, Hubby is a grumble bear and my Son could careless. We actually stopped putting out Jack-O-Lanterns 2 years ago. We were tired of buying candy and whatever else I would buy for the T/Ts and then have no one knock on the door. We stopped buying candy, and hubby said if we decorate, someone will show up, and you'll be there empty handed. I guess he has a valid point. (we live in the woods, and for 25 years the most kids we ever got was 12, the least-3 years ago-2)
BUT...I still love Halloween and join swaps and make stuff. So the next 2-3 days I will be sharing my Halloween Art and some pictures. Perhaps a surprise or 2. :)
Here are some Halloween Gothic Arches I made for a swap, 2 views each. We are swapping 5, the 6th one is for the hostess. I made 7 so I get one of my own.
3D images, and crackle glaze used on the bottle with the bird in it. Titled "Modern Witch"
This is one I am keeping for myself...I love the crossed goblets charm (rec'd as a rak) Titled "Sisters forever"
The foil raven is 3D, i covered the entire arch in crackle glaze...the quote says: "The vampire's Strength is that people do not believe in him." called: "The Vampire's Strength"
Milagros eyes over her own, added the wings, and crackle glaze to the wings. Edgar Allen Poe line says: "The death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetic topic in the world" titled: "Beauty in Death"
Hand drawn trees, grass, broken out window and spider's web. Crystal skull bead in window sill holding a drawn candle. This is called "Haunted Teenage Hang out"
This is "Witch-in-training" 3D elements include raised Book of shadows and pumpkin, plastic witch's boot, 2 crystal skull beads
In "Bad Moon Rising" the glow from her lamp and the "skull in the moon" has glow-in-the-dark Mod podge over them. 3D coffin, painted black with a sacred heart Milagros.
I hope you like my arches :) and they help to add to your Halloween mood.
Did I mention I would have a giveaway for this party? I didn't, well there will be one. It will be shown on Tomorrow's actual Party post. (don't I always have a giveaway during blog hops? but of course!) MHUUUHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
