Day 13 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Do you know the expression, "the tail wags the dog"? Well. that's what these wooden legs, purchased for 99 cents sometime in September, did to me. I kept plugging away at it but the legs were in charge of the style and the size of the project the whole time. I got to get out my old Dremel scroll saw and cut the upper body and arms - learned you should stamp before you cut on pieces that small! The arm stamps are from Burnt Offerings. The bats from Inkadinkado. I made the background paper from merging a PS paper of mine and the one that Jean was giving away on her blog. I tried the flower thing but not accomplished at that yet.



The bloghop continues from here to Lisa's beautiful creations. Or if you want the rules, start at the beginning on Terra's blog - first in the blogroll to the right. Thank you Hoppers for all of your kind comments!

This turned out great! I didn't know what you were talking about at first but then I recognized the legs. I love the color scheme with the blue, ivory and black! A lovely departure - reminds me a bit of old movies somehow. I love what you did with her and the wings - this wing theme you are going for this year is just great!

She's amazing! What a fabulous project from her legs to her wings to all the white details on the frame. And your flowers are lovely I think you did a great job on those too.

She is assembled so well and the wings are perfect, feels like she's lost somewhere. I love the detailing around the frame.
