Challenge #194 - Ghostly Goings On

The Opus Gluei Poobahs are feeling spooooky, scary, silly, costumey, retro/vintage....all things Halloweeny....
(Halloweenie? eh, whatever)

That's right, it is time to get into the SPIRIT of the Halloween mood and create some


It's fun to pull out the Halloween decor and crafty goodness.
So, please do just that and then share your creations with us here at Opus Gluei!

Chat Noir here with a Halloween inspired card, even though we don't celebrate Halloween in Australia....yet.  

I was given this digi from Zoe at Make It Crafty but I'm new to digital images in my work, so I probably didn't make as much of it as I could have done...... BUT, I like the unraveling zombie/mummy creature so I made him balance on the cobweb and it all came together from there.  He's supposed to drawing on the bat for support, but I forgive you if it isn't clear. I think the silliest bit is the roll of toilet paper - surely that's not what he's wrapped in??


I think ghosties should be sneaky.  Well, I think they ARE, actually.
What you you think?
You might need to look hard to find the ghosties in my piece.
They are there.
And they are coming!

Rosemary here and I really enjoy Halloween, I like more of the scary that isn't gory and decor that is more vintage and retro.  So, I made a cross stitch home decor item because I like to fill my mantle with plenty of stuff!!!!

Not too scary, right?  It stitches up very quickly.  I love their patterns!
It's a Prairie Schooler chart from Cats, Bats and Witches (#174)

Deena here:
I am not really one to make halloween type cards...not that I don't like them, I just would never hand them out...not sure why??  Maybe because it is usually snowing by halloween in my neck of the woods and it is hard enough to get candy out to those little ghosts and goblins...I did however have this paper burning a hole in my pile and I had to use it, so this is what I came up with:

You have lots of time to play along with us.  Just create, link below to your blog post in the comments, and then prepare for visits to admire your art!

You have until the witching hour on November 1st to link up!
