Ike's World Challenges Week 2, HDH Jan Challenge, PYG Jan Challenge

I apologize for this post not posting on the correct day.  For some reason it was ready to post for February.  Ho hum, yep, the mind is truly going.

Get over to Ike's World Challenges!  Such wonderful projects by the DT from Week 1 and Week 2.  This Challenge #29 Something Old / Something New is waiting just for you.  Get those projects in by Monday the 19th and win...

I will be using two of Ike's images, VAMP and NEW SHOES, which can be found at Ike's Art.  One of them is also this #29 Challenge FREEBIE!!
When I saw NEW SHOES, the first thing that popped into my head was little girl who was sad that she got her new shoes dirty...with blood!  You know me, always on the dark side.  
Then I knew she reminded me of Claudia from 'Interview with a Vampire', and so my art journal page was born.
She and her shoes are something new, and the vampire who created her is something old.

I will also be entering this page into the January Challenges:
Haunted Design House January Challenge, "What's New Pussycat?" 
Punk You Girl January Challenge "Anything Goes"

Cleaning Up the Deets

Sponge with Dylusions and Maya Mist sprays used to make background on page.

Vamp and New Shoes images were printed onto Whisper White card stock.
Each was colored in with inks, Aqua Painter, and markers.

Vamp was sponge around cut edges.
New Shoes was fussy cut.
Each was adhered onto page, then sponges around to highlight.

Saying was altered with a font in word, printed onto copy paper, cut, and adhered to page.
"A little child she was but also a fierce killer now capable of the ruthless persuit of blood, with a child's demanding."
