the awfully big art adventure and the daring card makers







Here at last is my 3D house for The Awfully Big Art Adventure challenge for Linda and Rosie, sorry it's late but I had to wait for my DGD to take the photos for me..I have about 24 of them as some of you know she is putting together her port folio for next Sept.

I have also been told by a few readers that I should enter it for this weeks challenge over at 'The Daring Card Makers' click on HERE and see some other gorgeous Halloween goodies.... great Ideas ready for next year.

The house started it's days as a box of washing machine tablets and possibly one of the best boxes I have recycled as it is so strong.... only problem if you like to cover it in patterened paper and as most sheets are 12x12 they wouldn't be big enough to do it in one piece, luckily this one needed to be plain black and so I cut out the pattern from an A3 white paper and then painted it.

All images are that of Digi scrapping Queen Kate Hadfield except the small bat and the spiders which were part of a Halloween RAK from Jaqi. The lettering I cut.

The 3D Haunted House was recycled into a 'Halloween trick or treat box' for my youngest DGS.

Credits to my photographer 16yr old Jordie... love u xx

PS see Monday 27th Oct post for the monthly challenge on this blog for an Altered CD
