Are you waiting for more of my main 31DOH project?

The Hunting Of The Snark -  a Poem by Lewis Carroll



I finished with this double page in the last post - I am still adding images that could possibly be Snarks!! Some of the images you have already seen as ATCs during the 31 Days.



The next page has one of my favourite Smeared Ink (No longer Trading) digis - Hallo Kitty - coloured with Promarkers and cut out.


On the left hand side of this double page I have added a piece of a lovely eco-print sent me by a fellow crafter. I really must have a go at this! On the right are images you have already seen. The winged skellies are from Hellgnome Digis.


Another eco print from my friend and Leigh's Bizarre Beasties.


Another of my favourite Smeared Ink digis - Devil Boy - coloured with  Promarkers and cut out.


The Barrister - one of Henry Holiday's illustrations, made into an ATC.


Just a few more pages to come...

To finish this post I am just going to add a couple of Halloween cards I put together this afternoon.



Both the images used are freebies from Lizzy Love and the Oddballs Newsletter.
For this first card I printed it on a card so that I could just fold it into a card. 
I just added a little colour with Copics.



For the second card I printed the image on a background paper from Dragonslair.
I then coloured it with Copics and added the little witch from Stampin Up.


I then decided to cut the windows and door so they would open and stamp some Stampin Up images behind.




These images were stamped on the inside of an insert  - I stamped more on the side that would be seen on opening the card.







Happy Hopping!

In this post, I am showing you some more of my main 31DOH project illustrating

The Hunting Of The Snark -  a Poem by Lewis Carroll



I posted the last few pages yesterday and finished with:




Next has a cracked critter on a scrap of number paper on a gelli pull.



The flasks and flagons are Rick St Dennis rubber stamps coloured with Copics.



Next we have the Broker - one of Henry Holiday's pictures.



The next two have cracked critters on papers from my stash.




Just a few more pages to come...

Spot Prize 4 / GIVEAWAY WINNER!!


As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,





Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,

How many were there going to St. Ives?

The answer to the riddle is of course ONE - the others were going away from St Ives - I did wonder if any of you would start adding up all the cats, kits, sacks and wives...

I had lots of correct answers - so my independent adjudicator picked the name from the hat...



The winner is...

Arianna Barbara

I can't believe it's the 29th already -
 I still have so many ideas and images on my work table...and fabric...

So - I have been thinking of more suitable Snark images...although that pour I showed you the other day is pretty hard to beat...



Anyway, thinking back to last year I used the cracked critters, rubber stamps from Lost Coast Designs - these were the ATCs I made last year:



Maybe this year's are a bit scarier:


5 ATCs comprising sort of pinkish bases, marbled background, images embossed in black.






You will find these interspersed amongst the pages of my book, more of which I will show later.

I will link these ATCs to Lost Coast Portal Challenge #62 31 Days of Halloween
