Guest Designer - Donna Billek

Say hello and welcome to our Guest Designer for the Trick or Treat challenge.  This is Donna Billek of Inkysplatters and she was the Design Team's favourite from the To Everything There is a Season challenge.

I am so excited to be invited back as a guest designer for the latest challenge Trick or Treat! I had a great time creating today’s project and I hope that it inspires you to join in on the challenge!

I live in the beautiful state of Colorado – every day I am in awe of the beauty and ruggedness of the Rocky Mountains. Autumn here is short lived but beautiful. Soon the snow clouds will be rolling over the mountains ushering us closer to winter. I live with my handsome, lovely British husband, our clowder (a fancy word for a group of cats), and a pup. I love Autumn and Halloween – it’s just a fun time to decorate and work with things like skulls, pumpkins, leaves, and creepy crawly things like spiders. I love the darker side combined with the sophisticated side! With that in mind, I created today’s project:

On the outside it looks like a frame that could hang on the wall but hidden behind it a shadow box with little bits and pieces of Halloween.

And then another little hidden key!

Happy late Autumn to each of you!  Thank you to the Frilly and Funkie Design team for inviting me back with another project to share with everyone.

  1. This is fantastic Donna!!! So much wonderful detail inside the shadowbox concealed by a beautiful framed image. Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie xx

  2. Wow, Donna! You sure did trick me! I love the details of your shadow box, and how clever you've concealed it with your lovely artwork! I truly did not catch on at first glance, because I was so mesmerized by your gorgeous collage in the frame! Thank you for being our Guest Designer! Hugs!

  3. Donna, your project is beautiful and oh so clever, I love that you added not one, but two treats! x

  4. Such a stunning project! .... and very clever with all those wonderful details in the shadowbox too. Jennie

  5. Such a beautiful and clever trick and treat! Love the false front to reveal the beautiful inside which is truly a treat! Thanks for joining us as a guest designer!
