Oh mercy me!

Hallowe'en, oh mercy me!
All challenge blogs are full of Halloween, and I'm not a huge fan. The evening is altogether too noisy, people are going wild on the streets. I usually have a Halloween party "just for us girls", nice food, wine, good music, the obligatory pumpkins as decoration. Well, used to have. That was in the big city, thousands of miles away. Now I live in a very rural life, secluded, even, where lighting just one candle will make a big difference.
I made these inchies for Joanne's inchie swap. Halloween, if you will.

The picture clicks bigger.
tech stuff:
Note the festively sparkly background. I used a wild concoction of ink, dye, glitter glue and puffy fabric paint. Squirted everything onto the surface and blended it then and there with a thick brush. Different type mediums didn't exactly blend, some colors stayed mostly where I had put them, others could be manouvred around. There is coverage, though it is deliciously uneven. The background was school grade (100g) watercolor pad. I flattened it out with hot iron after drying as it had started to buckle.


  1. by the way, miten löysit taitokympin monot? kiinnostavaa kuulla polku!

  2. I love the randomness of them - they look Halloween colours so capture the spirit of it.
