Griselda Ghastlie is back, and this time she's got her entire family with her! Just in time for Halloween. She made her first appearance on the blog back in January, in this post, and she was the inspiration for our Fiber Art Bee's challenge. Members purchased one of the four figures featured on the fabric panel by Alexander Henry Fabrics and used it to make their own Ghastlie project. This month was the reveal, and what a fun day it was- a reunion of sorts for the Ghastlie Clan.
There's Griselda, standing in front of several family members dressed in their finest.
You can see a couple of the original fabric panels in front of Laura's Ghastlie trio.
There were even Ghastlie garments. Merri made her jacket using an Indygo Junction pattern and centered a Ghastlie Family in the center back.
In addition to Griselda, I also made this apron using a Sit a Spell panel, the caped Ghastlie to whom I added a derby with a cat sitting atop, some fabric paint, lots of lace and glitter, and some tulle ruffling.
We took a break from admiring the Ghastlies, to enjoy some spider and monster cookies. And then it was back to the festivities.
Joyce used Inktense Blocks to colorize her Ghastlie girl and stitched her into this wallhanging.
Michyle gave her Ghastlie girl a steampunk look by decoupaging her onto a canvas. She used so many techniques to complete her project, that I've lost count. But she foiled her hair and added glitter glue and a feather. She used discarded jewelry to embellish, including toe rings for the arm garters, and a locket for the cat portrait. Watch faces and parts are also in the piece, and Michyle recycled discarded frame corners to complete her asymmetrical wall art. There's even a disembodied, skeletal hand up top and a necklace dangling off the bottom. So creative!
Bonnie couldn't stop and she made an entire family collection, using roving for the hair and adding other embellishments.
Even tiny yo yos and buttons went into her pieces.
Sherry added bat wing eyebrows to the caped guy, and lots of colorful embellishments to the Ghastlie woman.
More family members...
And even more! The two women may be competing for the Ghastlie guy's attention, and I do believe he is blushing. Or nervous.
And finally me, modeling my apron and holding Griselda. This was so much fun and everyone who participated really rose to the challenge. What will we do next???
