31 Days of Halloween with DominoART and Smeared and Smudged and the start of Blockheads Paper Arts October Technique Challenge!

Hello Everyone!

'Tis the start of the Haunting Season and Best Witches to you all!

 I'm super excited coz it's Day 1 of my 2nd annual 31 Days of Halloween over on my DominoART Blog!  It's going to be a grand spooktacular event with 31 gloriously scary altered domino creations for you to feast your greedy eyes on!

DominoART's Wicked Players list is located in the left hand side bar.  Each Day links directly to a petrifying project so you can browse them all to your hearts content!  The links will be added periodically.

I've two fabulous companies sponsoring 3 wicked cool prizes! 
Blockheads Paper Arts
is sponsoring the 
Grand Prize of a $50 Gift Certificate!


  is sponsoring two 
$13 Gift Certificates 
for the 2nd and 3rd place prizes! 
Cool Stuff for Non-Fancy Prices
 All of DominoART's Wicked Players are in the running for some scary good prizes plus there will be some sneaky prizes provided by me throughout October too!  I might pick a random winner from DominoART's followers or from everyone who visits and leaves a comment each day!  I might hide a DominoART Treat that you have to find...who knows, anything could happen!

But the fun doesn't end there, keep reading!

Are you being inspired by all the wicked DominoART eye candy and would like to share your own creations with us?  Then I'd like to invite you to link up your Halloween altered game art in the Readers' Art Gallery!  Add your project URL to the inlinkz collection on the 31 Days of Halloween Readers' Art Gallery page and you never know, I might just award a DominoART Treat to my favourite entry ;0)

You'll have to haunt us all month long to see if you're a winner of any of the prizes up for grabs ;0)

But wait...there's more!

Just in case spooktacular DominoART Eye Candy and Treats galore aren't enough for you, DominoART is taking part as a Wicked Blogger in the 4th annual Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!  Woohoo!!

You can participate as a Horrifying Hopper or as a Sinister Lurker for the chance to win even more prizes from Smeared and Smudged!  You don't have to be a member of their forum to play either!
Also keep your eyes peeled coz one day when you least expect it DominoART will be hiding their Scavenger Hunt pic for you all to find!  When you see it you must email them to be included in the drawing for that day :0)

The Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop roll is located on DominoART's right hand side bar!  For all the gorey details on how to play in their Blog Hop please visit Terra's blog which is the first one on the list! 

Oh I'm not done yet, this post is just packed with frightfully good news ;0)

Here's a peek at my spooktacular domino creation for
Day 1 of 31 Days of Halloween!
which is also the first project I'm sharing for Blockheads Paper Arts October Technique Challenge hosted by me called

Precious Metals - A Compendium of Leafing Techniques

This project features one of 6 techniques demoed and shows you how to create a plaid design using various widths of double sided tape with gold and silver Leafing applied.

Pop on over to DominoART to see my full project (Oct 1st post)!

Then hop on over to Blockheads for all the gorey details and take the Precious Metals challenge for a chance to win even more prizes!  There are two prizes up for grabs via their Blog and Facebook page!  Challenge starts Oct 1 and ends on Oct 21.

You will see examples featuring the various techniques by the Blockheads Design Team and all the challenge entries in the inlinkz collection below!

Phew, there's a lot going on this October with plenty of ways for you to get your freak on!
