Well here in Australia it's already Halloween night (so Halloween will probably be over here before it even starts where most of you are!!!) I have an altered lantern to share for Halloween. My lantern came from IKEA and I painted it with a set of Vintaj Metal Patina paints which I love - I amazed myself with the transformation just by adding the paint let alone the amazing Gecko Galz Images which I printed on transparent type paper and mounted in the sides of the lantern. It looks amazing with the candle glowing inside and the lights turned off - I couldn't get as good a picture as I wanted but I hope you can get the effect!! I added some "cobwebs" as well from the packet I bought last year for Halloween creations!!!
Here's some pics of each side so you can see all the Gecko Galz images and in the picture at the end of this post you can see the plain black lantern that I started with!!
We don't really celebrate Halloween here but apparently it is becoming more popular and on my way home from work I saw a couple of families with the kids all dressed up & going into houses.
Smudgy Antics have a "Ghoul's Night Out" theme and I think the images on my lantern show some creepy characters having a fun night out at Halloween!!!
At the Haunted Design House Macabre Monday challenge there is a "Hammer House of Horror" theme and some of the spooky Gecko Galz characters are from the movies!
I'm also entering my lantern in the Creative Belli - Halloween Challenge - this challenge encourages the use of "old & forgotten" embellishments & I think my 1 year old Halloween Spiders Web certainly counts LOL!!!
The Sisterhood of Crafters have a great Halloween theme challenge too.
