September Progressive Challenge with Rick St Dennis

September already!!??!!  Where's our summer?? Looks like we, in Scotland, lucked out again this year. There have been too many days in August that the heating had to be turned on it's been that cold. I just hope this doesn't herald an arctic winter. I guess we'll find out in due course.
In the meantime............
What have I been making in my crafty corner?
Well one of the projects was this wall hanging..............for the Progressive challenge over at the Sparkle and Glitter with Rick St Dennis blog

Using the image Ghost of Versailles.

The image was coloured with promarkers and graph-it markers before cutting out with additional mats of red and 2 different blacks. Plenty of vintage paper distress ink, some black lace and little red and black flowers teamed with some black pearl sprays and a couple of home made pins.
Glossy accents added to the "emeralds" completed the project.

Go Dark - with Delicious Doodles

Good morning peeps
Today is the first of September and therefore heralds in the start of a new challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This month the challenge was chosen by Avril on behalf of myself - DARK! Be that dark colours or theme is down to interpretation. I went with both and made a little mini book.
Picture heavy so hope you'll last out until the end.
I used images from Teri's Etsy shop, of course......... The Skully Chess Set and The Tombstones.

The front of the book - hand stitched from scratch using black cardstock - features faux leather as demonstrated by Sheena Douglass.
The corners are black card, die cut and rubbed over with gilding wax.

The inside covers are papers from Teri as well

Journaling/photo mats on the reverse of the tombstones.

The other papers are all from the BoBunny Enchanted range with the exception of the checkerboard which is from DCWV Immortal love stack.

We hope you can find the time to join our challenge.
Thanks for looking
