Happy Halloween


Happy Halloween, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

This is a postcard that I did for a Halloween postcard swap that we had with people who have signed up for my online classes....we have exchanges from time to time, and they are always wonderful!
I have been using watercolour paper lately for my cards...the paper really shows of the vibrancy of the Letraset pens!
These handsome models are on my mantle this time of year, in case you were wondering.

In the spirit of the season, I am posting some pages that I have started in a copy of Bram Stoker's novel DRACULA that I am altering. It is a work in progress, and these pages that I am posting are far from complete...
I found a copy of this book at a garage sale, and spent most of the summer searching other garage sales and flea markets for pieces of broken jewelery, buttons, and other things that lent themselves to a vampire theme...and I am still searching! This project may take a while, but that is part of the fun....
