October Challenge....

For my design team project at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month, I couldn't resist making something with a Halloween theme.
What was once a white mini cabinet with a clock that I picked up in a charity shop about a year ago, is now a cabinet storing bottles of poison,some eyeballs, ghost & ghoulie books..along with a rather large black spider that's spread his web everywhere inside the cabinet.


Lots of sanding as the top section had a flower transfer on it....


Gessoed twice then painted twice in orange acrylic paint.


I decided to paint the top and bottom of the cabinet in black paint,but it just didn't work, so I sanded it back..I rather liked the effect and left it as it was.


I added the witch and cats looking in the window..and a few embellishments to the top section....finally adding a bat and skeleton on a chain on the door....

You can find this challenge over at
...no theme, but your entry must be altered art..no papercrafts/cards.

I am linking my project to the challenge over at We Love to Create
After a short break they are back with a new challenge..do pop over and take a look...

I really, really love this Sandie! Especially love the "accidental" look of the sanded back black paint. It works so well! x
