 Hello everyone,

Been a busy old time in the craftroom, I made loads of projects, photographed them step by step, cropped them,one at a time, resized them, added water mark..took hours to do..and they were in a folder in "My Pictures"..and I clicked to re name the file, my PC is too slow for me and I'm impatient and I clicked again without watching and........... DELETED.... I have no trash bin, I have no idea where they go and even did a PC search...gone..never mind ipiccy still had them on file, that is my free editing program so in I went and started all over again..didn't take as long and now they are done and all ready for next week, when I'm going to do a Halloween week..

I don't celebrate Halloween, but really enjoy making creepy and cute stuff, which brings me to today.....Barry and Halloween..

Tag Tuesday has a challenge for Purple and Orange and I just had to play as all my stuff was out for Halloween..

I started off with my background and just used the chisel end on my marker and coloured the sky and grass..not perfectly as it dries back and seems to sort itself out..

Added some purple ink around the edges and a bit of black soot,
coloured the bats and moon..

Then a little bit of shading with my pencils...

Added my fence,grass,mushrooms,and orange pumpkin..

And die cut a few tree branches and added to the top of the tree..

Then I thought Barry looked scared to death and had gone very pale..
meaning I hadn't coloured him..

So left him like that as I thought it looked cute..
just added sentiments that I coloured in purple makers..
and my tag was done..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..

Fabulous tag love the scene and you die-cut embellishments -these computers are a bit above themselves when you want to delete something they say are you sure you want to delete this??? Then if you delete by accident -just gone no second chance!!!

Beautiful tag with it's Autumnal foliage and spooky evening background. I'm glad poor Barrie has that tree to hide behind. Great idea to leave him uncoloured, he sure does look like he's as white as a ghost. Fab tag..
