HDH140-Vile Vintage

I thought this project would be quite a challenge.  The Macabre Monday theme this week tells us to use something vintage and make it vile, or vice versa.  I almost didn't try...until I found that little light bulb burning deep inside my head.  Here is what shone in it.

The main image is a picture of my Mother(on the left) and her older sister, around 5 and 6 years old.  It has always been a slightly creepy picture to me because they look like Siamese twins.  They aren't, in case you were wondering.

I scanned the photo and kept it the original 8x10 size.  I aged the photo with various ink and an emery board.  Added a few splat drops of blood.

Cool itkipuli image up there with an old earring I had laying around.

Of course I had to add a nice coroners tag.  My Mother being of the spirit world now, I found this part a little creepy as well.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Great piece. It has an Adams family wall hanging feel to it. Love all the little embellishments. Mark

  2. What an interesting way to use that picture! It does have an Adams Family look to it - I think all our pieces would fit well in their home. LOL!

  3. A great LO and a cool way to preserve those treasured memories. Thank you for sharing with us at MM @ HDH this week

  4. Superb piece cat and wonderful pic of your Mum and her sister. Love your project. Thanks for playing along with macabre monday this week. x
