Halloween Challenge: Horror Movies

I am taking part in another Halloween Challenge this year! I did the 31 Day Nail Art challenge last year at this time, but it was VERY time consuming and I just don't have to capacity to do that much this year. So this challenge will hopefully be more manageable and still be just as fun! Today's theme is Horror Movies. I chose one of the scariest movies I could think of: Poltergeist.

When I turned 12 years old my mom let me have my first boy-girl party and I chose this movie for us to watch. I have no idea why my mom let us watch this, it is terrifying!! The pool! The meat! The CLOWN! OMG, the CLOWN!!! Seriously, I am scarred for life because of that movie. Little Carol Anne could not be any creepier. Gah, I have goosebumps just thinking about it. 

I started with Zoya Skylar for the base. This color sort of reminded me of the blueish glow in a room when the tv is on a static signal. 

Then I used acrylic paints to make a static tv screen. This is a combination of white and blues. I used a dotting stroke to try to mimic the static blips on the screen.

Next I painted the little darling herself. Carol Anne in front of the tv screen, communicating with people only she can hear. Heebie Jeebie time FOR SURE!! I used white to outline her hands and head, so that there is a glow around her. 

Here are the other challenges I will be trying this month. It is a fun list of ideas!


And be sure to check out the other people who are trying this challenge. Maybe you should check them out with the lights ON. ;)

  10. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you offer. It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date rehashed information.
