Challenge 6 Scary Fairy Tales

Thanks to all who entered last weeks challenge. I am really excited about this weeks as I can't wait to get my teeth into the dark world of fairy tales.
As a child i was entranced by the darkness that always seemed to creep into my favourite fairy tales, these were usually Brothers Grimm stories
or Hans Christian Anderson. There were some amazingly imaginative plots and baddies in them. Think ... The Red Shoes & Hansel and Gretal, think also little red riding hood and the little mermaid ... and hundreds more.
You get the picture ??

I am off to explore and will be back with mine which i think this week will be an atc or journal page.
What will you create ?? hope its something deliciously dark ...

Ok Here is mine ( from Snow White ) 'Mirror Mirror '

Challenge Three - Vampires

Temptress - Tubes by outlaw designs

plus my own work,background and light effects

This weeks challenge is all about vampires. You may take that literally or you may if you wish, take it and apply it to some other meaning eg: energy vampire / Its yours to play around with and see how the darkness grasps you ... It sent me to sleep last night with some pretty scary visions ...

My vampire temptress comes from my poem in previous post and you are also invited to use the poem as the basis for your art work. Have fun my dark playmates ...

Challenge 2 - MASK

Thanks so much to Vron who entered my very first challenge ( tears ) with her incredible angel tears'. All entries will be displayed with the post and also will be added to a slide show soon. Thank you also to all who have taken and interest in this new blog challenge. I am aware that its a strange one and may be slow to get going but the more people see others addressing the darkside in art, the more we will see it explored. I am hoping challenge number 2 will give you something to get your teeth into and can be interpreted in many ways so ... enjoy and just let the title take you where it wants and create !
CHALLENGE 2 - MASK Here is one from me. I let my darkside lead me where it would. It came up with this owl like mask so i have created this darkly magical creature with owl face. Owl Masked Angel.
She is created from textured paints,pens etc

Challenge 1 Tears

Emotions effect us all profoundly and In this challenge I wanted to use the word 'TEARS' as they are a product of many emotions; sadness, frustration, fear, laughter etc. Think about how you would like to interpret 'tears' in your artwork and produce an atc or other.

Here is my own interpretation
'Drowning in Tears'
an atc in stamp,inks,pens and paper collage.
