I finished this the other day. I sortof like it.

It's inspired by the new Decemberists album, The Hazards of Love. In short, this guy killed his kids and then their ghosts come back to get him. The song they sing is sortof haunting, and I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I made this!



It's about 4x6 in size. It's a shadowbox frame I got at Goodwill for about 1.99. I painted the inside white, cut the guy out of white cardstock and the ghosts out of tissue paper and shone a light through it and voila! What do you think? :]

Wow! I love your technique. Actually, I love all the work I've seen of yours on here. I don't think I'd like the song though- I hate creepy-haunting-children-singing. It totally gives me chills. But I love how this looks! Smiley
