Woman Scorned Heart

Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent     October Halloween, No Bones About It Week 3

The Design Team has some more very inspiring and mesmerizing projects for Week 3 of our challenge.
We've had some great entries so far. It's always so much fun to see what people can scrounge up to, yes that's right, Recycle, Re-Purpose, & Re-Invent ;-)
This time around Chris has created a digi called Bride of Frankenstein. Some of you are to young to remember or may not be a fan of old black and white movies, but the actress Elsa Lancaster played the Bride and Boris Karloff played Frankenstein. Since I am both old enough and a big fan of black and white movies I remember the movie well. Still pretty scary. 
That's what inspired my project. It turns out Frankie didn't like his Bride at all and you know what happens when a lady gets her feelings hurt. The fires begin. Hence, my computer generated sentiment which I overlaid with a piece of transparency that drew and colored the flames on and attached with screw brads.
To get the look of forged metal, I began with a paper-mache heart to which I attached some dry wall tape and some paper gears then taped metal tape all over and burnished the whole thing with a bone folder. I antiqued it with watered down black acrylic paint and let that dry.
I printed the digi and colored her face with Copic Markers, did a little highlighting of her hair with a white gel pen, and chalked the upper right background to tie in with the copper frame I attached to her and the flames. 
I had a little container full of parts from an old timer so I glued them around and attached a heart charm in the middle because you know even though our Bride is flaming mad she still pines for Frankie in her heart.
Good Luck with your Halloween projects and we are looking forward to seeing more of your scary, creepy creations before the end of the month.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

This project is amazing. I love the aged metal effect you achieved on the heart. The sentiment is so cool with the flames on the transparency and the Bride is gorgeous. The timer bits and charm add lovely dimension. Awesome!
