Happy Stump Day, hampers ... hope you're enjoying a fabulous Wednesday!
Since I'm currently trying to earn a l'il money, as opposed to just spendin' it, I'm still making ... and selling ... altered paper bag albums. Since I've been a l'il lax in the card-making department of late, I thought I'd share my latest album with you.
That big, brown thing in the top photo is the front cover. And,
this ^ spread is pages two and three. Check out the bottled "Swamp Fog" ... carefully collected for you from the greatest of all living swamps, the Florida Everglades. I've also bottled up some "Bat Skeletons" and a goodly collection of nicely-yellowed "Vampire Fangs" ... just for you. And that's a real, working monocle you see on the left ... tucked in with those original prescriptions from the 1930's.
Have you noticed that I have a pile of the weirdest. things. ever?!? Moving onward,
this ^ spread is pages four and five; and,
this ^ spread is pages six and seven ... notice the v-e-r-y old (1920's) photos of authentic, haunted houses. No, really! Would I kid you?!? Which brings us to
this ^ spread ... pages eight and nine; and, finally
this ^ spread ... pages ten and eleven. Check out that rare photo, circa 1918, capturing the images of members of one of the largest Covens of Witches in Boston. True story!
This was such a fun album to create ... for one of my most favorite holidays! Hope you enjoyed looking at my photos. And if you're a true glutton for punishment, you can click on the photos for the ginormous view.
This album is currently up for auction on eBay, so if you're interested in seeing tons more photos of this album ... including lots of detail shots ... and a close-up of that precious commodity, Swamp Fog, clicky HERE. Honestly, it's worth the trip just to see my super-cool Halloween auction template. TIP: When you get to my auction, mouse-over the header photo. And turn your speakers on ... isn't that super-spooooooky!?!
Since I really love this album, I won't be too sorry if it doesn't sell. BUT, if it does sell, I'd rather see this go live with you. So, if you're interested in purchasing this OOAK, altered art Halloween album chock full of original, vintage ephemera, simply contact me directly. And despite what my eBay listing says, I will ship internationally. The only caveat is you'll need to make arrangements through me. You can shoot me an email by clicking HERE.
I'll be back on Friday with yet another exciting Stamp Simply challenge ... 'til then, stay safe and keep smiling!
Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!
