We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Halloween melt .....

I just want to say thank you for all the lovely comments people have been leaving - I'm tickled pink you like what I do!  Though maybe that should be tickled blue!  Can I also say welcome to new followers.

Last night at the Ashtead Club I demonstrated making Christmas baubles with the melt pot for use as hanging ornaments or embellishments on cards.  See previous post.

But, it was the night before Halloween (would that be Halloween eve?!?), so I had to acknowledge that fact!

At the weekend I found some cheap Frankenstein bolts on a headband - which reminded me of my steampunk obsession, so I gathered together some die-cut cogs which I spritzed with grungy colours and (plastic) spiders .....

Whipped out my trusty glue gun, and hey presto .....

Here is its debut .....

We had lovely meltpot fun - here are some action photos .....

More photos of what everyone did will be on the Ashtead Club blog in due course (link on sidebar).

So Happy Spookiness (with a Christmas twist!).
