Day 1 of 31 Days of Halloween: Spooky is the Word by Leigh!

 Welcome to

 I ❤️ Halloween so much I've been hosting 31 days of spooktacular projects for about 15 years now, long before blogs and Facebook even existed, all the way back to the fabulous days of my DominoART yahoo group in fact!  I'm thrilled to be hosting again this year and invite everyone to join the spooktivities👻

🎃This is a progressive blog hop which means new projects will appear daily in the Blog Hop linky party located at the bottom of my daily posts!  It's always so much fun to enjoy the spooktacular art on show and see who can survive all 31 days!

🎃The hop is easy going with NO sign-up required!
🎃All art welcome, creepy and cute and all stamp companies welcome too!
🎃It's totally up to you to show how devoted you are to this most spooktacular time of year👻

🎃Be a Wicked Blogger and enter a project just once or daily, any time from Oct 1st until 5 mins to midnight pacific on Oct 31st, then hop and comment too!

🎃Or be a Sinister Stalker and just enjoy the show by stalking all projects shared throughout the month and leave lots of love along the way!  Easy!

For the Hop Rules and more info on How to Play please visit the
31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop page!

WARNING!  Monsters ignoring the rules will be vanquished from the hop!
🎃To be fair to my generous sponsors EVERYONE needs to hop and comment to be eligible for prizes so I want to see lots of sharing and commenting going on👻

🎃Don't be a party pooper by entering projects and then not bother to enjoy what the other Wicked Bloggers are sharing!  Be NICE, hop and comment too, it IS the whole point of a blog hop after all!

 🎃If a project is not your cup of tea you can say so but please be nice about it, I'm sure you can find something positive to say!  NO rude and unkind comments and absolutely NO unsolicited negative critiquing!  If the artist asks for opinions please keep them positive!

🎃Do you dare to share or will you hide in fear?
Round up your ghoulfriends and mansters and join the spooktivities👻

SPOOKY is the Word!
by Leigh

I'm kicking off the spooktivities with an altered 3D wooden word that says SPOOKY featuring my new designs from the "The Truth is Out There Somewhere" Sci-fi Collection👻

"The Truth is Out There Somewhere" is inspired by my all time favourite TV show, The X-Files, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in September.  I've been an X-Phile since day 1 and had an absolute blast creating these characters👽

Special Agent Foxy is so handsome and cool and Special Agent Boston Terrier is super cute!  Why a Boston Terrier you ask, well.. I named my dog Scully of course👻

I found the perfect wood Halloween decor word at Target coz in the show Mulder's nickname is Spooky Mulder!  I used Prismacolor pencils and a white Dylusions paint pen to create the Space background and the characters are coloured with Copics.

Neo loves to inspect all my projects😻
Go shopping for these fabulous new designs by clicking on the badges below!
As usual, featured designs will be on 25% off FLASH SALE until midnight pacific tonight so grab them while they're hot😋

Get all 5 designs in the "The Truth is Out There Somewhere" bundle and save!

Use the red and white embossed label style Red Tape Snippets to compliment your sci-fi and Halloween projects or use the whole sheet to create backgrounds!  Either way you'll find many uses for the word snippets👽
Sit back and enjoy my Halloween 2018 Collection release video😋

  7. Very fun project! Love the colors and designs!
    Awesome sideline is my X Files story... Many years ago, when the show was at the height of popularity, my mother-in-law happened to meet a relative of the star of the show. I believe it was his uncle. She asked the uncle to get an autograph to give to my daughter for her upcoming birthday. My daughter was a big fan of the show. So she was able to get David Duchovny's autograph along with his jotting down of the popular catchphrase, "The truth is out there!". My m-i-l had it framed and presented it to my daughter. We still have it.

    1. Thank you Denise!!! Oh my UFO, your daughter is one lucky girl, what a treasure she has, thanks for sharing!!!!
