October challenge - Altered Eclectics

Hi all, back again with post 2 of 3!

It's October, yay! That can mean only one thing... Spooky Hallowe'en themed goodies of course!
like my DT piece for Altered Eclectics this month!

I used a Tim Holtz paper pad to decorate my little shadow box (which started life as a little wooden box with wooden beads in that someone gave me at work), after I'd painted the walls and dividers with Black Soot Distress inks. I cut some elements to use from the pad, and also added some pumpkin buttons, game tokens and orange and black seed beads, as well as lots of charms.

I attached some small torches to the sides of the shadow box, and if you look closely at the little charm in the top left cubby, you may recognise it as a Twilight one. My daughter used to be a big fan, but has since grown out of it, so donated the "new moon" bracelet she had to the project.
In the top right cubby I've added some of my old Warhammer miniatures, which fit the theme perfectly too.

Some die cut letters finish it off, et voila! One finished Hallowe'en shadow box for me to take to work when the time comes to make it all look super spooky (and then hopefully sell to make money for the charity, lol)

There's some amazing projects waiting to be admired over on the Altered Eclectics blog, and if you fancy altering something (doesn't have to be Hallowe'en themed), why not come and play with us?

Ok, back in one minute with my final post of the morning!
