We have a new challenge for you and its.....

"P.M.S. Psychotic Miss Silver"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that uses or includes an angry/crazy/psychotic woman and silver.
We've all been there. Some weeks are better than others. Make her crazy. Make her angry. Make her silver. Well, not literally, but use silver somewhere on this project.

This is my project..... i have used 3x SMEARED INK images (2xrubber and 1x digi) 2x CRAFTS AND ME rubber stamps and a DELICIOUS DOODLES digi image. .... and of cause CHERRY PIE stamps to make up the background.
I also used MS graveyard border punch, promarkers and distress inks to colour, and silver miri card as well as black card stock for the base. I finished it off with some black gems, silver rub on metallic paste and little metal flowers i made, with punched leaves.

I looked up PSYCHOTIC......
1.depressed mood most of the day nearly every day
2.noticeably increased or decreased sex drive
3.loss of interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities most of the day nearly every day
4.significant weight loss or weight gain, OR decrease or increase in appetite nearly every day
5.insomnia OR hypersomnia (sleeping excessively) nearly everyday
6.psycho motor agitation (moving more quickly) OR retardation (moving more slowly) nearly every day, so much that other people notice
7.fatigue OR loss of energy nearly every day
8.feelings of worthlessness OR excessive or inappropriate guilt (which may be delusional) nearly every day (not merely self-reproach or guilt about being sick)
9.diminished ability to think or concentrate, OR indecisiveness, nearly every day
recurrent thoughts of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent ideas about suicide without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or specific plan for committing suicide
10.delusions or hallucinations
11.increased and intense daydreaming

....... and maybe ..... i am! I have tried to convey as sense of sadness and desperation (hence the tears) as well as the self serving smirk on the nearest images face and the aggression that the women with guns portray. Deep? Very DEEP! Thats how i'm feeling at the moment.... very mixed emotions going on in my head..... normal maddness will resume shortly..i hope!

I shall enter this piece into the following challenges..... ANYTHING ANYTHING GOES PINKS GREYS BLACK AND WHITE..... hope the hair colour doesnt count! DISTRESSING.... the edges and the subject matter. USE A DIGI .... i have used 2. 'QUIET COLOURS' ..... all very muted and understated, except the red hair..... ANYTHING GOES...DO SOMETHING YOU WOULDNT NORMALLY DO. ..... i have tried to express emotion in pictures.... DEVILISH INTENTIONS.... oh yes! DIES OR PUNCHES...MS border and leaves USE A DIGI 2x images PUNCHES...MS border graveyard and leaves USE METAL.... the little flowers BORDER PUNCHES ....MS graveyard USE SOMETHING DIGITAL ...2x images
