New Theme for the Weekly Challenge
"Ghostly"


It is the season for all things spooky, so I came upon the word "ghostly" for this week's challenge. Since Saturday is the most bewitching night of the year, Halloween, start thinking creepy, shadowy, eerie thoughts and come up with a perfectly supernatural masterpiece!

This one should be lots of fun ~ anything goes really, because after all, who has actually seen what a ghost looks like! Oh, you have? Well, by all means, share with us!

Think not only ghosts, but all the places ghosts hang out ~ haunted houses, graveyards, abandoned buildings, the woods at night, the basement ... okay okay!



By contrast, don't forget that there are friendly ghosts too. Remember Casper? Or the adorable 3 year old who came by your house last Halloween with a sack for candy? So if fright is not your thing, take "ghostly" in the other direction. There's plenty of room for cute or funny!

Whether you create jewelry, mixed media, paintings, photography, collage, ceramics, needlecraft, or more, put a ghostly twist on it. So, Happy Haunting, and let's see how creative you can be!

See the details for entering in the sidebar at the right.

And while you are perusing the sidebar, click on the Monthly Giveaway to see October's prize! This month a gorgeous felt cuff bracelet was donated by our lovely Sharon of Mana Moon Studios. The drawing will be held on November 1. By submitting an entry in the weekly challenge, you are automatically entered in the giveaway!
