I wanted to create a seasonally spooky project to end my short sabbatical from blogging (think Indiana Jones crossed with Scooby Doo) – I just hope these knife-block cutouts are not too spooky! Anyway, just to makes sure, I chose two well-known fictional characters, Frankenstein and the Mummy, both of whom it could be argued are not really alive anyway!
It’s a fairly easy project to make, but if you’d like to use my artwork you can download it below – also, the illustrations are intact (there’s no knife holes!) so feel free to use them for other spooky projects as well.
1) Colour versions of the Mummy and Frankenstein artwork 226 downloads so far, thanks everyone!
The ‘craft’ blogging community is a very generous one. A lot of people work very hard preparing projects to share (for free) and I for one would like to show my support by being a little more active in highlighting some of my favourites.
So, with that in mind I’d like to give Mini-eco a big shout out, and to tell you to visit Kate’s wonderful blog, and then to buy her wonderful book, highlighted below.

I recently celebrated a year of blogging by exhibiting a print called Everything I made in a year at the Art Sells exhibition in London. Organised by two girls who work in a well known London advertising agency, it was open to any ‘frustrated creative’ working within the wider creative industry. I wouldn’t say I was frustrated but I liked the concept, and submitted two pieces, one being accepted. It was the first time I had exhibited any of my work, which was quite a thrill, and hopefully I can have another crack at it next year.
I’d love to know a little more about the type of craft project you’d like to see more off. And to make it easier to get your feedback I’m running my first poll! If you have time please have a go.
