Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your encouraging comments on my previous post.

Menacing Mermaids is the challange this week at Haunted Design House. I only have one mermaid image, a digi from Crafts and Me so that's the one I've used. She has been coloured on the PC and touched up with Le Plume markers. On hind-sight I wish I had used brighter colours.

Kuriously Korroded with Kenny K

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well (cos I'm not) and thank you for your kind comments on my last post :D

I am slowly recovering from my weekend at the Download Festival, which was fantastic with the exception of the weather! it was very very wet and windy, my clothes aren't that wet when the come out of the washing machine. Don't know if it is because I was so wet or just coincidental timing, but I am now suffering from a virus, which is causing my joints to swell and ache :( But enough of my moaning and on with my post.

Kuriously Korroded with Kenny K is the challenge over at Haunted Design House, you are to create a dark, Gothic or Halloween-based art piece that is distressed in some way i.e. ripped, smudged, torn, sanded, acid-eaten, burned or mangled. So that is what I tried to do, I have to say, it looked much better in my head!!!!

Sorry Guys :(

The panel on the left has been antiqued, torn and sanded. The panel on the right has been torn and the white edges coloured black.

The sentiment says "You're in My World Now"
