CRaZy AmiGo ChaLLenGe

For this week's crazy amigo challenge the theme is HOUSES. Here's an altered book spread i did featuring a scary victorian mansion.
I googled haunted houses to find some images. I cut out the window and put a face underneath.
I glued it to the right page of the spread.
On the left page i used an ad for italian marble monuments from an ephemera CD, printed on regular paper. I antiqued it a bit with sepia toned ink. I cut out the angel statue from the ad and glued it to the opposite page in front of the house.
I wanted to use gesso to create a creepy ghost like appearance - so i streaked it all over the pages.
You know how you have "special" things you keep forever and never use? For me - this gate and fence sticker was one such thing. I wanted to save it for a special project. Don't know why - it wasn't that expensive or anything. It is Mrs. Grossmans.
Two final touches - three embossed birds stamped above the house and silver metallic element on the left top corner just cuz.
