Keeping an Eye (or 8) on the Neighbours

Appalling Arachnids is this weeks challenge from Haunted Design House, Macabre Mondays. Last time I did spiders, I apparently freaked a few people out, so this time I have gone tame. just the 2 visible spiders on this one. I have used the Haunted House digi stamp from Shelleys Images decoupaged with 4 layers after colouring with PMs and fine liners and then behind a window frame. The frame has been covered with a tattered bit of net and then stuck on distressed paper (gifted by a friend so unsure of the origin) for the inside of the room. Then spidey, home made from pipecleaners and coloured with permanent markers is peeking out into the street.

I am also entering this into the challenge for distressing over on Ellephantastic Challenges. Paper and netting both having been distressed and into the Oh Alice! challenge this week which is create with windows and/or broken glass technique.


  1. Hiya. This is fab. You have a very creative mind and you have put so much work and detail into this creation. Well done and good luck with the challenges, its a sure winner. Happy crafting.
    With love, Sandra xx

  2. Ohhhh Helen, how gruesome this looks - I mean, you really did the house wonderfully; so much of a 3D look - like you could step on the stairs and walk and touch each post. This is amazing - love the tule over it too and the spider does add a special effect...very nicely done! :-)

  3. Fabulous piece, Helen!! LOVE the whole looking-out-the-window scene you've created, all the way to the curtains :) Thanks so much for playing along with Macabre Monday!
