12 Days of Creepmas - Holly Jolly Christmas

Day 9 of the 12 Days of Creepmas, according to the Smeared and Smudged blog.  If you're following the hop in order, (see here for more about how to play!) you've arrived here from Airless Chambers.  If you're lost, or have come in halfway, you can go back to the start, or work your way through in any order - the blog roll is over there on the right.

A nice shiny bauble today, adorned with a skull digi from Smeared  Ink's Anatomy 101.  I've added a jolly hat (I used Photoshop) printed it onto tissue (sorry, it just wasn't possible to get through a blog hop without getting tissue paper in there somewhere) and applied it to the bauble with Mod Podge.  I gave it a coat of Judikins Micro Glaze before I podged it to stop the ink from bleeding.

Today's bonus bit is from a 1960's animated feature,  "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".  It used to be shown on TV at Christmas quite regularly when I was growing up.  When one of my nieces was quite small she burst into floods of tears while watching it because the other reindeer wouldn't play with Rudolph.  It took us some time to console her.

Anyway, this is "Holly Jolly Christmas", as sung by Burl Ives.  Hope you enjoy it.

Off you go, now, to Sarah's blog. Thank you for visiting, and I'll see you on Dec 19.
