Smeared Ink's Monthly Design Team Blog Hop

It's time for the monthly blog hop at Smeared Ink and I have a fabulous project to show you all! =) This is also my monthly altered project! =) These photos will also be posted in the Smeared and Smudged forum!

The theme is: Do your own thing! =)

I bought a clock at a flea market and it was too cute in pink and blue, so I decided to take away all the decorations, paint it black and only kept the cat in the top left corner. After that it's just been here in the living room until I realized that it would be perfect for the hop! =)

So prepare for a lot of images + text and I will try and explain everything I've made! =)

Images I've used from Smeared Ink:
Anatomy 101 Skull front
Empty Specimen Jar
Jar label
White rabbit single
Vampire bunny
Cemetary gate
Anatomy 101 Ribs

This is my haunted mansion with the clock. It has four rooms and I decorated all of them in a different style, might be a mad scientist that lives here! =)

I started working on the centerpiece, the clock, managed to remove the clock and add the White Rabbit Single and the clock in the center of the image. The great part was that the clock worked after I out it back, so I was lucky. The image is colored with promarkers and I added stickles to the green parts of the image.

To the left of the clock was the cat that I couldn't removeso I left it there and just added red halfpearls for the eyes. Then I added the Vampire Bunny with thick 3D pillows and half pearls to it's eyes too. It's colored with different shades of green and has red pearls or blood made with my pearl maker on it's fur. A haunted house need some pets! =)

Under the Vampire Bunny you can see some specimen jars, added the label to one of them and raised that on 3D pillows too + the lid, in the back is a specimen jar filled with a rib cage and one is laying there with crackle accent on it, doesnt show so well unfortunatly. It's glued on with glossy accent.

Below the clock you have the cemetary gate, raised on 3D pillows. A man is hanged in the gate (a charm) and I added some cheese cloth to make it a little foggy in the ground. Not sure what the mad scientist is up to but he saved some gauce with blood on in a jar and it's dripping blood on the sides. Might be an experiment going on.

On the right side of the clock you can see a skull on the wall and a skeletonhand in the ceiling. The hand is covered in blood and dripping down on the floor. The skull is colored with promarkers and I added crackle and glossy accent to it, as you can see below in a close-up. The dripping blood is from a Pearl maker, as used in other parts of the house. The hand is glued on with glossy accent, couldn't find my gluegun until I had finished this, as usual! =)

I'm adding this into the following challenges:
