A Gingersnap Creative Connection: Let's Create a Haunted Blog Web

Gingersnap Creations is challenging you to take your art and craft it forward! I'm asking all of my blog followers to help create a blog web of wonderful art across cyberspace.

Use haunted as your inspiration and upload your art to your own blog with the following text:

I am participating in a GC Creative Connection. I heard about this month’s GCCC - Haunted - from Helene aka 2amscrapper of LOTSA SCRAP. Why not play along? Post a creation to your blog mentioning my post and the Creative Connection post on Gingersnap Creations. Let’s all craft it forward and see how far we can get this connection to go!

Don't forget to leave a comment on the GC blog post so everyone can see the gorgeous art that you have created for this connection.  More details about the creative connection are there as well:. Gingersnap Creations

Here's another haunted piece of art work for your  inspiration from Shar, entitled Poe-It-Tree (so clever!): Ill Tempered Ink.

Details about my Haunt piece:
Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 used to digitally alter a cropped photo from the early 1900's; rendered soft omni lighting effects which I then colored in with Copic Ciao Y11 to create a moon; distorted a diffuse glow on the upstairs window (woo-ooh--ooh); and canvas texture.
Printed on canvas water color paper; edges frayed;
Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante fussy cutting
Websters Pages Bloomers; Hero Arts flower; Prima flower
Tim Holtz Idea-ology gears
German scrap witch
Heidi Swapp ghost clock
silver skull charm from Red Lead Paperworks
