Dali delusions: Haunted Design House

Dali is the fitting inspiration for Macabre Monday atHaunted Design House challenge.

Unsurprisingly this challenge led me first to the Ocotopode Factory and Lily Chilvers' outstanding Dali-pode; I used her version from the Artists Digital Collage Sheet.

After that it was only a matter of finding a bunch of clocks and other strange things, like those extra-cool voodoo dolls, to print onto ink jet Shrinky Dinks.

Color wash sprays in cranberry and purple twilight, a little sticky-back Fun Felt in single, double and triple layers, two game spinners and TADA!

A Dali delusions piece made more warbly and wonky by letting Dali-pode and his wee shrunken friends cool on spoons and tray edges and various other curved places.

Get yourself to HauntedDesign House where you'll find ideas and creepiness and lots of awesome art!
