I have been trying out some new layering techniques and I am pretty happy with the way this one page came out. Below are the two challenges that I am entering this 6"x 6" page into.
Smeared and Smudged Forum
Smudgy Antics - September Challenge Embellishments
The Smeared and Smudged Forum had month long challenges going on and it is a great way to get those fingers inky. This page is for the Oh! The Horror challenge featuring the movie Transylvania 6 - 5000. The plot is for two reporters to go to Transylvania to find out if Frankenstein is real or not. While there they meet a crazy scientist, a humpback family, vampiress, something in a swamp, a hairy man, and Frankenstein. It is a comedy about finding out if these "monsters" are real or not.
This got me thinking about how each of us views our areas of our life. Then the big one, death. I found a great quote by Lao Tzo, "Life and Death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides." We can choose to embrace one or the other or each. The important thing, I think, is that you have an open mind and are willing to embrace everything all that comes with both Life and Death.
What side do you see for Frankenstein? The Monster or the Man? Life or Death?
