Spoopy!!!

Hi & welcome to my first share with you from a new DT I was asked to join. Its called {PIN}spirational, every fortnight you will be shown an inspirational photo. You will have two weeks to come up with your own creation, taking, colours, images & ideas from our photo.

This fortnight we are sponsored by Sherri Baldy. 
I decided to use my own image for this challenge, as I thought 'Sally' was perfect for paint splodges.
