horror stories

I don't like them. They creep me out. I do NOT
appreciate a case of the heebley jeebleys, no ma'am,
no thank you!



Have you ever read The Tale Tell Heart? Whoo hoo,
we had to read that in school. It probably wouldn't
have the same effect on me now, but yikes, let me tell
you, it scared me silly back in the day. That's such a
great photo of Edgar Allen Poe, he looks so very much
like he knows something (it, and the spooky house in
the corner, are from Altered Pages). He had such a sad
life, very tragic. I suppose it's suitable that he is
considered to be the father of the horror genre.

If you like a good scare, or just a horror story now
and again, you may want to consider the new challenge at
Gingersnap Creations.

And yes, as a matter-of-fact, that is a real piece of
something's jaw . . .

You brought that whole sense of vintage eeriness to this piece of art.
Amazing!

Scary and spooky with lots of great layers! Cool stuff (though the real jawbone totally creeps me out!)

This is brilliant, really atmospheric. I'm not going to ask where you got the piece of jawbone from though lol x
