Ok. . here goes nothing lol. My first photo post of my own work here on Craftster! Yay me! I hope this is in the right spot  Tongue

I made this painting for my man for Christmas. He's a huge Iron Maiden fan. So I found an image of Eddie from the Killers album someone had made a stencil of on flicker (would so give the link but it appears they removed the image or something after I looked at it). I free handed it onto the canvas, painted it out in black and white to make it really stand out. Lined the pieces of his hair in light blue (that bit doesn't really show up in the photos.) Then I wired two LED lights through the canvas, hooked it all up to speakers and an Mp3 player loaded with the Iron Maiden catalog and voila! Eddie! I was inspired by an instructables post for FOC. View this cool project here:  http://www.instructables.com/id/Audio-Visual-Art....FOTC-Style/

On to the pictures!!!!

Wow, you did a fabulous job.  It's the perfect present for a Maiden fan.  Your boyfriend must have been thrilled.

Thanks! I really appreciate it  Smiley He knew I'd been working on something special for him, so it was the first present he went for lol. I think it's safe to say he liked it, he hung it in his fave place of all. . . right next to his computer  Tongue
