Remains: Bathroom Bride Decor

4

I absolutely love ornate frames. The more victorian and gothic they look the better. I am hoping to one day re do all the frames in our home to only be this type of frame. I have gradually started but right now we have soooo many things framed it would cost a small fortune to replace them all. My Mother In Law always keeps an eye out for them at garage sales. She had found me a silver 5 x 7 one a while back when I was upcycling frames for my limited edition framed art prints. I decided not to use this one for the project and keep it all to myself. 🙂 I just wasn’t sure when or how I was going to use it until today.

First I painted it. I mixed a plum purple with a hint of hot pink to make the color I wanted. While it was still wet I brushed a dry cloth over it to get some of the silver shine to come through. After it dried I printed one of my favorite photos of Elsa Lachester on photo paper. It is of her on the set of the Bride of Frankenstein applying her makeup. Perfect to hang in our bathroom! I just love the way it looks with our Be Your Own Kind Of Bootiful sign (that I got for $2.50 during Halloween at Dollar General)! On our other wall is the Sourpuss Clothing Beauty Is Only Skin Deep clock that I recently picked up on their clearance for only $6!!

Dead Girl Decay: More Vintage Burlesque Styles Available!

2

It’s been a while since I did some vintage, burlesque upcycled barrettes! I am feeling better and motivated! So I am happy to say I have 3 new custom, one of a kind pieces up in my shop all made from upcycled vintage jewelry pieces! I literally just finished them and they are all ready to ship.

All 3 are very different and can appeal to various styles. The first one features an upcycled piece that is very fae/fairy fantasy like. The middle piece a maltese cross with various shades of autumn like stones. The last features a very unique dragon cameo

The perfect accessory for that bombshell dress sitting in your closet. Looking to dress up that sweater and pants look for a special occasion? What about a fun hair piece to go with that Halloween costume your planning? These are also hot sellers among brides and bridesmaids looking for a one of a kind piece that will make a statement!

Get a closer look at them in my shop as well as on the Dead Girl Decay page of my portfolio site! Only 1 of each available!

Spitting Image: Limited Edition Framed Prints

1

When I vended the Hardcore Hearse Club show in June I decided to display and sell my portrait prints framed. However I wanted to be more creative about it. I didn’t want to just put them in frames. I wanted to add my artistic flare to them. I also wanted to make them limited edition so that they were one of a kind to whomever bought them.

So what I did is I purchased unique frames from thrift stores and completely up cycled them by doing what I do best….. I painted, decorated, etc each one of them to coincide with the theme of the artwork.

Since they were such a hit I have decided to continue doing them. I have also decided that when I am not vending they will now be available in my Etsy Shop.

If you go to the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site you can see the ones that I have made so far.

If you go to the Spitting Image section of my Etsy Shop you will see which pieces are currently available for purchase!

Please note that the Exorcist/Regan piece is currently listed under the Back Bone section because I always donate to the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation whenever I sell a piece of my work that is inspired by her.

Also the Lily Munster piece is still currently available. Please contact me directly if you are interested in this piece.

Etsy rules advise against posting Munsters related items on their site. Despite the fact that my piece is one of a kind and not a direct replica I still do not risk it out of respect of their wishes. So if you are interested in this specific piece (or just a print of it) I can work with you via PayPal. Please note I have gotten a lot of inquiries both in person and online for the framed version. So if you want it I would definitely act fast and contact me!

Remember all of these pieces are limited edition because the frames are up cycled and no 2 will ever be the same! If you are interested in a print that does not currently have a custom up cycled frame option contact me and we can work together to make one custom for you!
