halloweeny christmas

after a lot of cut&glue work recently (which i really enjoy) i wanted to try whether i had forgotten all about photo editing/ digital collaging. hence this postcard:

SPA suggests "halloween with a christmas twist":
on an orange (> take a word - challenge) background i placed a graveyard cross, inverted two snowmen into black, gave them santa caps and added a frame of black snowflakes. the clipart santa sleigh was constructed with bats instead of reindeers.

  12. Blending Halloween with Christmas is "beyond my ken". There's something about the Santa hats on the tombstones that's unsettling...but art is supposed to evoke emotion. This does its job!!! Well done.

  13. Wirklich spooky! Allein die Vorstellung von Weihnachten mit Halloween;) Deine Collage zeigt aber, daß Du nichts von Deinen Fähigkeiten vergessen hast. Ganz tolle Kombinationen und ein toller Hintergrund.
    Alles Liebe, Manuela

  14. It's amazing how adding those hats make everything look more spooky. Probably because they are totally unexpected.

  16. Huhu Johanna, Schande auf mein Haupt, habe schon ewig nicht mehr bei Dir kommentiert, ich gelobe zwar Besserung, aber drauf verlassen würde ich mich nicht ;o)
    Hach, das ist eine großartige Idee,
    die beiden Themen zu kombinieren.
    Kommst Du morgen?
