31 Days of Halloween-Day 1



It's here!  It's here!  It's finally here!  Holy-crap on whole wheat toast!  It's here...and I didn't get projects done ahead of time like I promised myself!  D'oh!  I must LOVE to punish myself!  Why else would I wait until the last minute to make my projects? 

What?  You've never heard of the 31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged?  Click HERE to find out the details on what this month long blog hop is about and to find out how you can win some cool prizes.  Basically, a group of us bloggers will post a Halloween or Day of the Dead themed project using a stamped image somewhere in our projects daily for the 31 days of October to provide inspiration to our hoppers and lurkers.  Although I hope to be posting my projects by 12:01 a.m. in my time zone, the hop projects are not required to be up until 9 a.m. Pacific time each day so if you are hopping along and some projects are not yet posted, be sure to head back to the blogs at the official hop time.  The hop list is posted on my sidebar on the left hand side.

My project for today serves double duty.  It is my first of 31 projects for the 31 days of Halloween and I am also entering this into Haunted Design House's Macabre Monday challenge HDH108.  The challenge was to "make a scene"...which is what I did...a Graveyard Scene!

Here it is:
(Click image to enlarge)


Background: Itkupilli
Stamped Images (zombie and tombstones): Smeared Ink's "Build a Graveyard" digi stamp set.

I colored my images digitally, set them in the scene above, and added a texture overlay for a dirty, mossy look.  I hope you like what you see.  Be sure to check out the other blogs for more inspiration and come back tomorrow for day 2 of 31.

Cheers!
