Mort and a crone

I’ve been busily working on Halloween projects. The ideas and files are coming quickly at me, which is an indication of how happy I am. Nothing will make you appreciate what you have more than doing without for awhile. A month away from paper was nearly more than I could stand. Sigh. I am so glad to be back in my craft space if only for an hour every morning.

Here’s the first finished project, a spooky frame in digital format. There’s a bat sitting at the top of the frame and a couple of crows grace the sides. Also, the cutout in the bottom is actually a coffin shape. I cut it as small as 2 1/2 inches wide but I think the detail is lost a bit. So I suggest you go a tad larger.

la mort

Next up is Mort. I’ve been hoarding a partial tarot card deck for over 10 years. Left in a desk drawer by an old room mate, I’ve loved the colors and illustrations. I sent some with my Paris Swap through Speckled Egg. Parting with them nearly brought me to tears. I decided to just go ahead and scan Mort so that I could have my way with him. LOL. I put him in the vintage printables gallery on Flickr. Have at it.

    Sheila, Love your blog. I just discovered it today. I’m always on the “Look out!” for tutorials, and your sense of humor cracks me up, much like my own, heehee. Thanks for sharing. Deb

So, what do you think ?
