Allo again Smiley

I made these two mask paintings for the Vintage Halloween Swap. I was inspired by some vintage papier mache candy bowls I saw a while ago. The backgrounds are antique piano sheet music with a harlequin glitter pattern, and the paint is acrylic. For the record let me state that Martha S glitters are something truly awesome.

Vintage Cat Mask 8x8" (scan)






My paint floats leave a little to be desired because *someone* forgot to clean her brushes properly and wrecked them all, but it sort of adds to the vintage look. i think they're cute in a creepy sort of way ^_^

Those are so awesome!

And I am in a very monogamous relationship with the Martha glitters. They complete me and nothing else compares.

I really like these a lot especially the use of the sheet music and the glitter Grin  Vintage with modern flair; great job!
