The end of British Summertime!

Laughable really! The clocks go back in the early hours of tomorrow morning and we get an extra hour’s sleep to mark the end of British Summertime… that never started this year. Ah well, the grey days are still here, though it’s noticeably colder and sadly October seems to have flown past!

But that does mean it’ll be Halloween night next Friday and I can’t wait! TGIF this week asked for our Halloween art and I’ve been so busy with other things, I thought it’d be nice to get my Art Journal out and create a page for it. I love the orange Stewart Gill paint and my black and white witches flit merrily across the page, but I wanted a grungey background with out resorting to more paint. The solution: Carve another stamp!

When I was stamping round the sides of this page, it struck me that this stamp looked a bit like Frankenstein’s hair, so here’s a page of Franks!!!

Edit: I must point out here that Barbara told me “Carve” is this week’s theme at “Inspire me Thursday“, so I’m off to add this post to the blog! It’s a really diverse and eclectic challenge blog – come take a look! 😉

Aren’t they fun?! Other stamps: Third Coast (witches) and Diva Impressions (crows).

I was just off to carve one of my own…a bit late for the Inspire me Thurs. challenge to carve something (you might want to submit this. . .It’s not too late!) when I stopped by your blog first, and lo and behold, we’re on the same wave-length again (who would have thought?)! I can think of thousands of uses for this stamp, Rosie!! That is an art journaler’s dream stamp! Now I’m gone to carve my own…! XOXO
