This has to be my favorite page I made from this kit the Telltale Heart. I was so honored to guest design again and loved every minute of it. I made this for the new challenge over at SOD called A Dark Love Story. I had a very hard time trying to make a picture work for the papers I wanted to use for this theme. So I was about to use the images of the characters I chose, and my husband said why don't we dress up and I will photo shop the pics so you can use that. WOW!! Brilliant idea! So this is my first real photo shoot with some editing. I love how the pics turned out. I did some majoring distressing to the page...some painting, stamping blood, misting, wet distress work, tearing and inking.
Here is the story of Spartacus and his wife Sura: He is a man from Thrace who goes to war against the Romans, back in ancient times, and he stands up against his enemy and they take his beloved wife. She is sent into slavery and he is sent to Italy to be executed. Well he ends up fighting his way out of execution and becomes a gladiator. He does all of this in hopes of one day getting her back, always hearing her voice "Kill them all". Then out of good standing Spartacus' owner returns her to him, but before they meet, the owner has her killed because he does not want to loose his best gladiator.
