Into the Dark woods...

The Darkness calls,and as Halloween draws near
creepy creatures are rising from their graves
for this one Magical night.
Here comes my Vintage Gothic Freakshow
Introducing Elle & Friends, handmade
clay dolls made using paper clay and
decorated using recycled Jewelery/buckles.
They are getting ready to put on a show
So please remember your Silver Ticket!
This is Little Minx with her Top Hat
& pink umbrella x
And here is benji the Dancing Bear.
Le mysterieux Carnival freakshow poster and
Silver Ticket.

Come see my carnival paper doll parade
all my charactors made from printed layered
card and decorated with embellishments.
Milli has taken a wrong turn in the house of mirrors
and can not find her way out.
can you help her?
Meet Crystal & Melody.
and Drake who has awoke from a very long sleep,
and now is looking for a bite to eat!
Bella the bat-winged girl & good witch Dorothy.
Fran the figi mermaid.
Boo,Franky and Jojo the dog faced boy.

I was doing some halloween drawings
and I thought they would make up a nice
little story.
which I made into a mini paper story book

Over the hill & Faraway
Le Mysterieux Carnival is coming to play...

Through the dark woods come & see...
The carousel music calling to me!

Into the woods, the shadows do grow hiding
all manner of creatures.I wish not to know!
Halloween is here & ghosts are about
Hideous Nightmares you better watch out!
Vampires & demons are drawn to the call
The dark gothic melody draws one & all!

Magical Enchantment awaits through these curtains
But go back home,If your not Truly Certain!

As behind all the twinkle lights,the shows
and the games conceals a dark Evil
I do not wish to name!...
So Enjoy yourself,have your fortune told,
Ride on the Ferris wheel both young & old.

But make no Deals,dark wishes or contracts to sign...
Please go as you came,Do not leave your
SOUL behind!

I Have two Giveaways for you today
First you can win my little Minx clay doll and my
Silver carnival Ticket.

The dolls are amazing and the carnival was a delight. I loved all your artwork, but that Fiesty little Red Head Minx stole my heart. Her attire is just the best, and she reminds me of my little hatters at home. I do have a thing for those red-heads.
I am running a little late for my party but I would love for you to visit.

Wishes and Whimsy
