You Wood Do That! Week 2

You WOOD Do That!  Week 2
Remember, we're looking for wood in your projects this time around.
You could use wood grain stamps or paper, or even wood chippies,
but we're looking for more of a stretch if you're up to it. 
We want to see wooden coffins, stakes, broomsticks, gallows poles,
creepy gnarled trees. See where we're headed here?
Whether you go for a simple wooden box makeover, or a
wooden coffin filled with magical broomsticks, you have to make
it creepy, weird, Gothic, or Halloween in nature. 
NO cute stuff, please. 
We can't stomach that stuff down here in the trenches.

We have a special victim guest joining us this month in the dungeon who is no stranger to the dark and foreboding.  Please welcome Maureen Scott and her fabulous take on this fortnight's challenge.

Before

and AFTER!  Fabulous transformation! 

And a closer view. Whoa!

Now check out what the rest of the Minions have in store

From these..
to these.





Join us, won't you?
I mean, why wouldn't you?

Macabre Monday - You WOOD Do That!

Well, here we are right in the thick of October.
If the weather was cooperating it would be a perfect start
to the best month of the year. But I'll just turn on the a/c, 
light pumpkin spice candles, and decorate the dungeon anyway. 

The new challenge theme for this fornight is

Macabre Monday Ancient Evil Week 2

It's already week 2 of our Ancient Evil Challenge and we're having a ball unleashing the long forgotten myths and demonic creatures of yesteryear.  How time flies when you wreak havoc on humanity, eh?  Well, it's our job.  I mean somebody's got to do it, so without further ado, here's this week's inspiration from the Minions.




Contagion of Corrosion - Croms







Even though the Minions need only look back on their own
histories to locate some kind of Ancient Evil, hopefully
they have inspired you to play long in this challenging challenge. 

Enter your creations here.

Macabre Monday - Ancient Evil

Ancient Evil

Think back to days of yore, the very distant past.
What sort of evil lurked in the shadows back then? 
Slimy mythical monsters, devils, demons. Take your pick.
Please be sure to state what type of evil/monster you were 
inspired by in your post. We like to hear what inspires you.

Check out what the Minions did...

Devious Digital Demoness Susan

Macabre Monday - Crimson Crime Scene week 2

Boy, time sure flies when you're mopping up bloody
goodness from the dungeon floor. 
Gotta make room for the fresh makes, ya know.
Crimson Crime Scene
We're looking for inspiration from famous crime scenes.
You can pull inspiration from the crimes of eras gone
by, or choose something a bit more timely. Either way,
make sure you name your inspiration and it had better
have some red on it somewhere.

Check out what this week's Minions did...



Jack the Ripper



Lizzy Borden
   

See how easy that was?
Seems like a perfect time to get those Halloween papers
and stamps out, and put them to good use.
C'mon, play with us!!

Macabre Monday - Crimson Crime Scene

Fresh from our adrenaline rush from the last challenge,
we're looking for a little more blood and splatter.

Crimson Crime Scene
is the name of the game, and we're looking for inspiration
from some of history's bloodiest crime scenes.
Think of Jack the Ripper, Ed Gein, The Black Dahlia,
Charles Manson, and even OJ Simpson
Please note as to who, or what crime you have chosen 
as your inspiration in your blog post.

Blood being the key ingredient, we want to see some red
somewhere on your creation, as well.  

First up, for our creepy show and tell is:


Devious Digital Demoness Susan





Fantasmagorical Fiona  





Maniacal Mother of Mayhem Mo


Be sure to drop by each of the Minion's blogs to see their
projects up close and personal.

Now it's your turn to make a bloody mess!

And we all scream for ice cream!!!

Summer has come to a close, and what better way to celebrate,
than with ice cream?


Please watch this short, five minute film, and then give us your interpretation
as a cool and creepy creation. Use any medium, any images,
just make sure it's creepy and directly influence by this fun little video.

Wanna see how some of the Minions brought this film to their art?

Contagion of Corruption - Croms
Fabulous black and white zentangle creation. 


New image in the Delicious Doodles shop inspired by the film.


 Devilishly Deviant Donna
Anyone care for a lick of this blood-cicle?

Fun journal page with images drawn from the film.
And truer words were never spoken.


How's that for inspiration?
Please enter your film inspired creation here.
We are looking forward to seeing what goes on inside your head.
