cackling.  or maniacal laughter.  you choose what you feel sounds best when it comes to the sound I'm making just thinking about this project.

back in September, my neighbors and I went to see "Resident Evil: Retribution" in 3D.  I loved it.  then again, I love the whole franchise and can't wait for the next installment.  anyway, I wanted to make a showdowbox to show my love for RE and the fun I had with my neighbors.  I even wanted to include the 3D glasses.  I was only inspired though when I FINALLY got a hold of some spent bullet cases.  I bought the shadowbox one day when it was sale at 50% off and I had a coupon for an additional 25% off (I should have bought more!!!  I have at least 2 more clambering around in my head, dying to get out), but then it just sat around for all of November.  finally tonight...excuse me, this morning I decided to at least look around for an image I could use for the background.  the ideas in inspiration just EXPLODED from there.  I'll show you what ended up happening.  Grin

(click the picture to see it bigger/zoom)

you can still see a couple of spots where the paint is still a tad wet, and some of the glue was still a little tacky, so I made quick with the picture taking since I had to lay it down to get a good shot.  if you're familiar with the movie franchise, you'll know what the "A" means in my mind.  Tongue  in reality, I'm not sure what it stands for.  but anyway, I just LOVE how it turned out.  oh, and here's a picture I took in my bathroom after I played around with paint splatters for a bit:
