Snippets of Halloween

So this afternoon i have had the chance to put a few more touches of Halloween in our house and thought i would share them with you.

This is our front room mirror complete with candlestick holders which are normally there, broom stick which i think looks pretty good there but i would have preferred over the front door but some wicked witch might come past and borrow it and not bring it back and last years Halloween boxed card i made with me and hubby from 9yrs ago perched on top of it.

This is the clock we recently acquired from my mother-in-law. They were having a turn out as originally they were off to Spain and this was something i really wanted although it really doesn't go with anything in our home and yet looks quite suited where it is with my Halloween cat perched on top.

Skelly is on the door in our front room, i used him in my Halloween Celebration photos. He glows in the dark so later should put on a better show.

The pumpkin is on the dining room table and 'lights up'
but really doesn't give off much glow, we will be doing one of our own.

Here we have the kitchen window which i have just cleaned and added a couple of bat window clings too, there is also my owl pot sitting and a candle holder ready to burn that i have relocated to the kitchen.

So with one or two exceptions this is us for Halloween, more effort gone into Halloween all round this year especially with all my art that is also on the walls with the exception of one peice i'm saving for next weekend and another peice i hope to make.

How do you do Halloween?

I Digress - Holiday Art

This is a couple of pieces of my holiday art. The first page representing day one and my shell collecting and mammoth feat in driving from Rugby to Mablethorpe which for me was huge. The second drawing/painting represents day two and the view of the beach through an arch at the top of the steps going down to the beach. I photographed it and then drew it from the thumbnail on the camera. It was great to be able to continue my creative journey whilst being away from home with new inspirations :-)

Trick or Treat

This is my finished Pumpkin piece. Accessorized by one or two appropriate decoupage stickers to really make things pop. I hope you like it i really enjoyed painting it as i have all my recent paintings. It's been a great weekend blog hopping at a Hauntingly Magical Celebration hosted by Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist, find her link on the side bar. Thanks to all the wonderful party goers who stopped by, i am still trying to get round everyone but there were such alot of us, in fact I'm sure there are still some that are recovering from the event lol. Still one or two things to add in the run up to Halloween. Brett will be doing costume shifts at this rate as he has such alot of dressing up stuff. I too will be getting in the spirit of things and we're off to see the 'This is it' Michael Jackson movie on the morning of Halloween so that should be good if not a little sad. Keep checking in, like the ladies in the shreddies add, I'll be making more :)

The Halloween Thrill - A Hauntingly Magical Celebration

Do you ever get the feeling
that something’s watching you?

Something you can’t see or touch
but probably can you.

You get a sense of something
standing over there.

Something caught your eye
an icy stare.

The goosebumps start to rear
their heads from underneath your dermis.

As the flames flicker violently
amongst the coals in the furnace.

You want to run but you can’t hide!

The panic rears from deep inside!

The palpitations hammer away!

Will you live to see another day?

The candle flames a -dancing.
And suddenly all is still.

You have just experienced,
the HALLOWEEN thrill!

Happy Halloween, stay safe :)

I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper - Tda!

So here she is the finished peice, i am kinda smiling, i'd love to hear your thoughts. Complete constrast to my previous peices, totally not planned to be monocromatic, if that's the right word but plenty of sparkle and metalic touches.

'I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper'

This is one of about half a dozen doodled faces i have done over the last couple of days having completed my 'She always has her head stuck in the clouds painting seen here. I have never been particularly good at faces but all of a sudden they seem to be coming together to a point that I'm happy with, so i just played around with different themes and this is just one of them. I think once the next couple of week are over i shall try to take this one to canvas, maybe before knowing me but as we're soon off on our hols it really ought to wait. Hope you like it :)

Almost there...

Just a little while to go but you can see it coming along...

Full Moon

This was last nights full moon. My husband came in from the garden and said i ought to go take a look and as usual i tried to capture it. Usually unsuccessful but last night, bingo, this is zoomed and cropped but so much detail, can you see the dog in the moon, the man must have made way for him :)

Happy 1st October. Thought i would get the month of October off to a hooting good start by showing you my painting 'Bewitched'. Certainly the owls have done a great deal to inspire me and I'm thinking I'm not doing too bad interpreting them in my own way. Up until a week ago i thought 'A painter i am not' but now i think like all of us that create 'I am manifesting my thoughts to my best of my ability with the tools i have to hand'. There will be more to come so make sure you stop by. Twit Twoooo..............
