heart the art: week 43 (SPOOKY)

since HEART the ART week 43 fell right before halloween, the lovely miss gina set for our prompt, "SPOOKY". i don't know why that made me think of the silly photo blog post i made when i finished my nosferatu amigurumi this summer, but for some reason it did, and then it made me think that i'd really love to print all four photo-panels with the text on a little mini-comic...and put them into my book. so i did.

fooling around in photoshop, i discovered that i could make the pics even MORE comic-book-like by using the "cut out" filter. then all i had to do was add the text, print it out, and affix the windows to some cardstock. as an art journal page, i guess it's pretty "out there", but it has two important things going for it:

#1: it cracks me up (which...really...that'd be enough for it to make the cut!!)


#2: it reflects something i was "into" this year, by commemorating the fact that i've heartily enjoyed both making unusual ami's and photgraphing them with humorous backdrops.

welcome to HEART the ART, nosferatu, i hope you'll like it here! :)
