Just cos' I wanted to ......D

Hi all

Most of my mojo has gone and I have practically forced myself to get into the craftroom and do something.  I made flowers and a stickpin and I then felt the need to make this. 

I used a mask I had bought from a carboot sale.  I stripped it of all the embellies already on it but guess what forgot to take pic before doing so lol.  I have however took pic after and here it is.

I had even painted round the mouth area before remembering lol!

I painted it black and then stamped and embossed all over using skelli hands on the cheeks and spiders and web everywhere else - unable to see them so waste of time.  I split the canvas open after painting and stamping just as the mask.  I adhered some card behind the eyes and triple embossed it to give them a staring shine.  I also painted and embossed the lips.

I stuck the mask behind the canvas to give appearance of breaking out.

Don't know why I felt the urge to create this ... insanity perhaps!

Hope you enjoy looking into the darkness......
