Some of you are going to hate this!!

BUT I LOVE IT! 
 Well of course I do, I made it!!
 Yesterday I bought these plastic skeletons and bats and spiders.

 So, I took one of the skeletons, one of the bats and added a skull ring and a deer head with antlers

this is one of my moleskine journals......getting pretty fat and bent!

cut the head off the skeleton, the wings off the bat and the skull face off the ring and glue in place........I added the antlers (cut off the deer head) later!

 And it became this!!
Now I can't take all the credit for this.......... I saw the idea over on ART BLISS BLOG.
THIS POST was my inspiration and there is a downloadable tutorial
 As soon as I saw the packets of flat-ish skeletons I knew exactly what I was going to do with at least one of them!

 My journal now has a pretty freaky cover!!

Yowza, this is one scary creature! I am so glad to see your finished product and all the in-progress pics. This horned being looks as though he might be found enshrined in a neolithic cave painting. Great job!

I love it too, reading your blog makes me feel ok about wanting to create things that are seen as 'childish' in some peoples eyes, your work is always free and inspirational.xx
