It's Frightening at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All. Thank you for calling in. I bet the post title had you wondering what was happening at Try it on Tuesday. Well TIOT isn't at all frightening you will be pleased to know but the challenge for the next two weeks is just that, so hop over to see what my teamies have made and then join us with something scary. You can make anything you like so long as it follows the rules which are on the TIOT blog.

I made this journal cover as it was a boring cover before. This is full of painted textures and bits and bobs from a mixed box. I drew the bat and the castle in black felt tip and found the scary faces online. I hope I will be able to fill it with magical pages.

This is frightening ! A great big slug hiding in our grass when I went to hang the washing out.

I would also like to enter this at Anything but Cute where their theme this time is 31 days of Halloween and must have 31 on it somewhere

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Wonderfully spooky! Love ally the texture.. It certainly adds to the grungy feel! X

  2. The DT-work is very frightening but the slug makes me creep!

  5. This is indeed scary ! Great job Chrissie ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  6. ahhh creepy and spooky, look at those spare eyes lol....awesome and love the whole concept but one thing I don't like is that slug...slimey creatures.xx {The Journey Is The Start  aNNie  my personal blog}

  7. Awesome and Spooky, those eyes are fantastic. Love your Halloween book cover, but the slug sent shivers up my back.

  8. Chrissie, your Halloween journal cover is indeed scary! But those eyes are so very cool! Your slug has my skin crawling...for the damage he is about to impart! We had slug remove about 1/3 the back off one of our best maples--they can eat a LOT!

    Thank you for joining our 31 Days of Halloween challenge at Anything But Cute. Hugs! Sara Emily DT

  9. A great scary book cover love it, makes you wonder what's inside hugs Bee.

  10. I love LOVE your journal cover Chrissie with so many lovely horrid things to see....
    for one minute when you said 'want to enter this for........' I thought you meant that slimy slug or a useful meal for a hedgehog (supposedly - they ignore them in my garden) .... Gill xx

  11. Oooh love this, fab eyes, not so keen on that manky slug though xxx

  12. What a spooky cover, Chrissie, certainly this cover won't never be boring.
    Really scary and fabulous project!
    Hugs, Mar

  16. Fantastic cover Chrissie, very ghoulish with those eyes and faces. Hope you got rid of that slug - ugh!
    Hugs Avril xx

  17. Fantastic spooky... a super cover Chrissie!

  18. Eeek - what a collection of scary types! The dribbling blood is horrid (in the best possible way) trickling down all that great texture. Most scary of all though is that slug!! I can't bear them... would far rather encounter 100 spiders than a single slug!
