31 Days of Halloween Day 1, Day 274 of A Year of ATCs?

Here is this year's blog roll - do hope you will hop along for the 31 Days of Halloween

Black Dragon
Stampendous Stamps
Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda
Airless Chambers

I am actually in Australia for October so everything is scheduled - I hope it all goes to plan!
I will not be in my craft room but still had to take part!!

I will be offering some spot prizes...

And some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.

The ATC on the cover is one of a set three Owl ones on gelli plate backgrounds - you may remember seeing this one some days ago...
Anyway, for the first spot prize up for me ( and say what I have added when you see the next Owl ATC during the next couple of days - first correct answer will win a prize!  All prizes will be sent out at the end of 31DOH.

 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.

Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 1 of 31 DOH, Day 274 of 'A Year of ATCs?':

Base - Orange card
Background - Gelli plate
Shaping - Tonic ATC dies
Image - Smeared Zig real brush pens

Happy Crafting!
See you again tomorrow!
