Halloween assemblages


 Before I start I have to tell you I'm not a big Halloween fan. We live in the country and don't get any trick or treaters.So since the kids are not here to dress up and take out any more, Halloween just sort of comes and goes around here without much notice. Much to the Tin Man's dismay I don't even buy a box or 2 of the mini chocolate bars that come out this time of year any more(no more 'just one little chocolate bar won't hurt' delusions). 
   But after a challenge from Louise, one of  my Art Journal members last month to do an altered sardine can assemblage my mind started to fill with Halloween fun. I also have to tell you that after seeing her house decorated for Halloween last year I had a whole new outlook on what it can be, as apposed to my previous store bought views. Louise's house was filled with hand made and vintage Halloween decorations. None of those awful store bought typical decorations.
  So with these things in mind I began my voyage into the assemblage world which was also a new venture for me. I don't recollect ever doing any assemblage work before but I will definitely be doing it again. It was a bit of a struggle to get started and make decisions on where to put what but once I got going one wasn't enough. I ended up making 3 and a couple of ATC card. 

 The first 2 were done with copies of vintage photo's that I've collected.

This last one is done with a photo of myself in my tap dancing outfit a few years ago!

I couldn't stop altering these photos, so I did 2 ATC cards and it's not even our theme for ATC meeting next month. Any one want to trade a Halloween card?

Happy Creating!
