Halloween Shrine for That's Crafty


This is a first for me as I've never made anything remotely macabre before.  I've been watching the Borgias which has been quite grisly in parts. One such incident was in the final episode and the poisoning of Rodrigo Borgia.  His taster ingest a large amount of the stuff and the next thing he had blood oozing from his eyes, it was rather gruesome. ( I'm a big wus really LOL!)

If you'd like to see the full project please do pop over to Thatsbloggingcrafty for more details.

Have a great day and Happy Crafting XX

Hi Paula...wow! Love these images and the colours you have used look amazing. You have most definitely created intense atmosphere and it looks brilliant.

This is great. The colours are very rich yet the overall effect is of something quite dark and sinister. Brilliant atmosphere.

I'm a wuss as well. Didn't watch the Borgias but remember reading some historical novels years ago (may have been Jean Plaidy)about Lucriezia and Cesare - what a family.

Love the colours.

Hi Paula
I can relate as macabre is not my "thing" either.
In your case we never would have guessed this is a first for you. Such an atmospheric piece of art and amazing texture.

P.S. Are you enjoying Downton?

I missed the blood leaking from the eyes over at That's Crafty. For such a wuss, you're very good with the gore :-) I'm the same though. Jump at even the cheesiest horror film but like making gruesome and spooky stuff.

Terry said...

I once could watch some pretty gruesome stuff, but now I am with you, total wus! Now I love this frame and all it's awesome texture. Halloween is such a treat! Have fun!
