OCTOBER 1ST.... DAY #1 OF THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWE'EN

Welcome to the DE-STEMPELWINKEL designers blog,
we had such a great time last year taking part in the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWE'EN,
hosted by the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM
that we're doing it again this year.
All the details of the prizes, scavenger hunt...rules etc for this month long
HALLOWE'EN fest are to found HERE.
The full blog roll for this hop will remain on the side bar for the whole of the month.
Every day of this month, OCTOBER, 
we, the design team for DE-STEMPELWINKEL will have a project to show you using 
STAMPS and supplies from DE-STEMPELWINKEL..... a stamp company based in Holland
who will ship world-wide and offers a fast friendly service.
So...here we are the 1st day of the month,
so it's a new calender page,and its the dragons turn.... who else would kick off  for Hallowe'en hey?
 I have made a flip over calender out of board, using ribbons to bind it.
The cover has been stamped and masked, i drew in all the bubbles coming from the cauldron,
coloured with alcohol pens, pencils and ink.
 This little old witch is cooking up a real treat for everyone this month.
 Inside the front cover is a date planner,
I drew out a grid, wrote in the dates, then added some ghosts, owls on branches and some more twiggy bits.
As for the colouring i did as for the front cover... a varity of mediums.

SUPPLIES USED
DISTRESS INK BLACK SOOT
STAMPS USED
CAULDRON CP E180
HOCUS POCUS CP P416
GHOST from SPOOKY CEMETERY PLATE CP24
LARGE SCRABBLE ALPHABET SW U6092
OWLS ON BRANCH SW J12169
HAPPY HALLOWEEN sentiment from HALLOWEEN 1 PLATE SW 119
The branch bits around the day planner are just the edges of

Well thats it.... DAY#1 another 30 days to go.
Thank you for visiting... another designer will have another project to show you tomorrow.

What a lovely calendar this is! It makes me look forward to every day of this month, with so many special projects coming! (I've seen a few, so I know what I'm talking about!)
Even if you don't like Halloween, please do come and find inspiration for other projects throughout the year, a lot of Halloween projects can easily be changed to fit other occasions.
