About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

the PRICE is right.......

Happy birthday Mr. Price !!!

Today Vincent Price would have been 100 yrs old.  
He looks pretty good for 100, huh???

What more fitting memorial than to be featured on Haunted Design House and it's also HDH's 100th challenge.   The challenge is called Varying Visages of Vincent.

When I read the challenge the first movie that popped in my head was House of Wax....a classic starring Vincent.   He was such a stunning man!!!

If he was reading the phone book aloud; I would be sitting there with my jaw dropped to the floor in awe.
Looking very similar to VP's jaw in the pic below.  Bwahahahahahaha!!!
I altered the photo from above to make him look like he's melting. Then I added some crystal effects for extra goo.


I kept it black and white......'cause it just felt right.

Vincent ....nuff said !!!!

There's also a chance for some "blog candy corn"
Melts in your mouth and not in your hand...

Until later, visions of loveliness .........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!

Oh Crystal Vincent Price is one of my all time favourite actors his voice is enough to send shivers up the spine, but unlike some of today's so called handsome actors at least Vincent Price knew how to act. My favourite movie, or at least one of them is Dragonwyck, creepy. I do love your take on the House of Wax a true bit of art.
