Rick St. Dennis 13 Days of Creepmas Day 1

Here we are at December 1 and ready to start 13 Days of Creepmas with Rick St. Dennis. In addition to most of the design team most days, Rick is participating every day so it will be fun to see what he comes up with. If you've made it here following the blogroll, which on this site is in the sidebar on the right, you probably know that there are a lot of new digital designs rolling out - one for every day of the hop and each one is up for grabs. All you need to do is find it on one of our blogs and leave a comment to that effect and then leave a comment on Rick's Airless Chambers blog and tell him what you found and where. The first person to do that wins the image of the day.
And the person who wins the most images by being first on different days will actually get all of the images. Cool right??


My project for today is The Frostinator . I chose him because he's a little Steamy, which is a neat trick considering that he's a snowman (or almost half a snowman). With all of his gears and such showing, he was great fun to color. The first time I looked at his companion, I thought it was a cardinal so decided it was a chameleon with a bad case of cardinal envy. To complement his Steampunk side, I built the interior snowflakes out of gears and a little math. You all know how I like my math! The Steampunk bird is from Queen Kat Designs, the snowscene is my pond and my footprints and there are two sets of snowflake brushes, one is snowflake_brushes_by_hawksmont and the other is snowflakes-keepwaitingdirt. Ice Nine to me is an element of Kurt Vonnegut's Cats' Cradle but I guess there are other references of which I am clueless!

So, get on your way and see the goodies that everyone else has created. There are several Creepmas hops starting today - there's one going on at Smeared and Smudged that goes every other day for 12 days and there's one at The Official Creepmas Blog. Several of Rick's designers are participating in all three so stay alert, have fun and don't get lost!

So cool to put the Frostinator at your pond. Don't think I'd be walking through the woods on a snowy evening with him around. Love the steampunk bird at the side and the cardinal wanna be. LOL Fabulous! xxD

Rick's sort of a stickler on rules, so I'm sayin' that Steampunk bird IS the new image. (Keeping fingers crossed!) xxD
