I love joining in with Michelle Wards challenges over at the Green Pepper Press site. This also fits in with Created by hand challenge which was stencils today. This month we have to use black paper for some art work. I have had great fun this morning getting carried away making a load of background papers with various stencils and masks using paint. I have made them into a little book with my bind it all machine..I am doing this quite a lot now otherwise the papers get lost in my stash?????!!! The front cover also features a clip of a Klimt painting...very gothic with its grim reaper skeleton..I love October as most of the challenges are on the spooky darkside..wooooo!!!
