Samhain Sunset at HDH

Hellooooooo folks!

Hope you all survived the hurricane force winds down south? (UK) 
Sounds like a normal autumn storm like we get up here in Scotland, lol

Anyroadup (or blocked as the case may be) I have more of that project I showed yesterday.
There is a new theme over at Haunted Design House, the last one of the year for us as we'll be taking a seasonal break from the darkness.
Our theme this time, seeing as it will be Hallowe'en soon, is 
'Samhain Sunset'

We have a new sponsor for this theme, Aurora Wings, a lovely fantasy artist. I didn't use the images supplied for my make though. I used my own, selfish aren't I?? lol

So here are some more pages, and tags from my tag book.
I have tried to work everything in the book around the theme of EYES

This is the cover then.
I followed THIS TUTORIAL for the basic making of the book, but adjusted the sizes to suit my design. The cover pages use regular cardstock which has been embossed and smeared with waxy metallic stuff.

The image on the front is 'Reptile Eye' which I placed under a lovely metal book plate by Tim Holtz. I put loads of brads on the right so that I could use them as a fastening for the fingers that are clutching the book. These are an image I designed based on my grotty little fingers, and are called 'Digits'. I put some sticky magnetic bits under the tips to attach to the brads.

So here are some of the pages, and their tags (double sided)
All images used are from my store:
Too many images to mention individually!! 

Phew, you still there? lol

 All the frames for my images are made using spellbinders dies.
All cardstock, ribbon and glitz is from the stash.
All colouring done using watercolour pencils.

Can't believe how long this project took me, in-between walking the dog, all the household duties and having light therapy three days a week in the hospital I'm surprised I got it finished at all, lol

Had to cancel my session in the light tubes today, as I have done something to my knee and I don't want to aggravate it with a drive into town. Mind you, now the kids are back at school, 'tis me that has to take doggie out again, so that won't make it any better...ah well. Off to the Doc this afternoon, see what they say...
ttfn folks!
