It’s September 12th and that means it’s time to wave your wands (or glue sticks) and start building your own potions and poisons apothecary. Whether your style is cute, pretty, spooky, gothic, creepy and crawly; all takes on Halloween are welcome here! This event is all about having fun with Halloween and creating something that you will enjoy displaying during this spooktacular season. So turn on your favorite Halloween tunes and get your witchy grove on.
Feel free to download the images below and use them in your art.
Here is a link to a great online site for listening to Halloween music. It’s Weirdsvile’s “The Silly Side of Halloween. They play all the old favorites.
You’ll find the complete supply list (with the items I used – you are not required to use what I use) and pictures of the projects I’ll be covering in the tutorial in the tab at the top of the blog labeled “Apothecary Event 2nd Tutorial” or you can click here.
Every event needs giveaways and this event has two. To enter the giveaways you must create either an apothecary or items that go in an apothecary. The giveaways are open to US and International participants.
The first giveaway is for those who alter bottles, create books, coffins etc. To enter this giveaway you must create at least three items of your choice and send me a picture of your items by October 30th. I’ll showcase your items on this blog and link back to your blog or photo album if you have one. You do not have to create an apothecary cabinet to enter, just three items that might go in an apothecary cabinet. The prize will be my “Love Potion #9” altered bottle (without liquid for shipping purposes). The winner will be chosen at random by Random.org on October 31st.
The second giveaway is for those who create an apothecary cabinet with contents (bottles etc.). To enter this giveaway you must send a picture of your apothecary cabinet and contents to me by October 30th. I’ll showcase your apothecary on this blog and link back to your blog or photo album if you have one. There will be one winner and the prize is a big one. It includes my:
Hexes - accordion fold book with bookmark
Finest Spider Webs (Extra Sticky) Bottle & Poison Bottle
Sleeping Death Powder Bottle & Instant Embalming Fluid Bottle (without liquid because of shipping)
13th Hour Domino Book
Owl Hollow ATC
The winner will be chosen at random by Random.org on October 31st.
