Day 22 of 31: Creepy Carnival with Rick St. Dennis

Helloooooo Halloween fanatics! Welcome to the 22nd day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am posting my project here and on the Airless Chambers blog for Rick St. Dennis. Behold! The most popular attraction of the Creepy Carnival!

I decided to work with the Scary Go Round (great name, right?!) I colored it up with my alcohol markers. 


It took me a while to get all of the details right, but I am so happy with the results. Now tell me, would you go on this ride? I would!


I didn't want to do too much, so that it wouldn't overtake the image. A Martha Stewart Punch, fun Halloween paper, a tag I made...and this 6x6 Mini Page was done. Hope you like it! Remember to visit all of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

I spent a couple summers running the rides in my wild youth. None were quite as exciting as this.

Have you seen the Haunted Carnival event at Artfully Musing?
