Haunted House @ Eclectic Ellapu


Hi folks and a big BOO to you too!!!!! Yes October is here and a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. This months theme is "horror/dark". 
So along with a new month comes another American Holiday us Brits have decided to participate in!! I've never really been in to Halloween, even as a kid and in the crafting world we don't get much Halloween crafting goodies to play with in the UK. The stuff you find is often tacky and usually made of plastic. Not a great starting point.....
BUT NOT THIS YEAR!!! This year I got this.... from Tando Creations website

3D House Kit

This is Tando's 3D House Kit. It's fab!!! It comes flat packed so you can decorate each bit flat (which makes it much easier if you're adding messy media like embossing paste...)

So... here is my creation...

Hope you like my haunted house.... 
and hope to see you over at the challenge. 
Toodles for now...

I would like to enter this make in to the following challenges:
That Craft Place - anything goes
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - challenge #17 wordsearch 
(I used the words pumpkin, skull and bat.)
DecoArt - mixed media haunts challenge. 
(I used DecoArt Gesso and DecoArt matte medium)

  10. Hi Lisa. I love how you've taken such a sweet, innocent little house and turned it into such a textural little haunted cottage. Great imagination! Love the ghostly walls and how you've made them seem so aged. Your pumpkins and skeleton pieces around the house are nice touch, too. Thanks for sharing your art with us at the Haunts Challenge.
