Now let's move on to check what our Design Team has created 


For me, the topic was a challenge in the true sense of the word. Halloween is not a traditional holiday for Bulgarians and although it has been widely celebrated in recent years, for me it has remained foreign. Challenges are a good thing because sometimes they take me out of my comfort zone. My interpretation of the subject is a panel of skulls and flowers. From the colors on the mood board, I chose purple, black, and white.

Pumpkin spice and everything nice!
With the beautiful fall and halloween upon us, this mixed media piece of art makes for a perfect home decoration. A grungy pumpkin with all the shades of violet and orange, is sure to be a show stopper for the season. I have used tons of buttons to my layering of elements to create this spooky fall inspired pumpkin. Hope y'all like it

This months theme is not just spooky but quiet a fun too experimenting your art/craft skills to try out making something out of your regular style.
Here’s is my inspiration creating this little box of horror with everything haunting, creating layers of haunted house, with many mixed media elements around, along with our compulsory element including buttons here
Hope u enjoy this inspiration and try participating in the challenge soon.
I will take your leave here for the day….do let me know what do you think of this composition and do not miss to participate in the challenge.
Much Love

Come October.. it’s Halloween fever everywhere. Trick or treat.. give me something good to eat. By the moon we gather around the pumpkin light, to celebrate this time of the year. Disguise yourself and let’s party long into the night.

'HOKUS POKUS' - magic, Halloween time is coming! I used green and purple shades from our mood board and BUTTONS to make the background on this mdf base. I also used modeling paste and sand paste, a little bit of silver wax and white splashes.

I have made decorative piece for this month theme. I name it as 'haunting'.
The moodboard pictures and colors inspired me to create this. I used spilling glass vessel look with resin for the witch potion look.
I used crackle medium for old spooky look. I used texture paste and stencil to make the spider web look.. used chipboard, clay to complete the piece.

For this month's Hocus-Pocus theme, I took inspiration from the mood board and created a spooky drawer box. I added lot of layers and elements related to Halloween and the moon in the background. The beautiful textures adds depth to my project. Hope you like my project.

Do you feel inspired!
