My last Halloween post – this year. Going out with a bang or maybe a kill….so to speak!
Ever since the Spring when SVG Attic released the Make a Splash kit, I knew what I wanted to do with the 3D Bath Tub.
Knowing my evil, crooked mind, you would too….MUAHAHAHAHA
Halloween of course – but what does a bath tub have to do with Halloween?
Setting the scene: A woman is taking a long hot bath in the tub/shower and is not seeing the figure coming into the room with a knife in the hand – Next thing….she is being stabbed to death and blood spills all over the tub and shower curtain.
Recognize this scene????
Yes it’s the famous shower scene from the movie Psycho – only a little more graphic since it’s in color.
I really had fun making this and it did take me a while as I had to figure out how to make the shower curtain.
Using my scout-day skills (LOL) I tied some hibachi skewers onto a metal ring and covered it all with black flourist tape.
Then I added the curtain which is made from vellum and folded here and there to give the impression of a hanging curtain.
The Tub is made from AC Cardstock in Ash and with patterned paper from DCWV’s Spooky and Sparkly collection. I also used Silhouette Printable Silver Foil for the faucets. I created the top shower head myself out of the bottom faucet and some circles I stacked together.
I then painted the inside of the tub to make it all white and a tiny bit shiny. Once that was dry, I went to town with the blood splatter – using a brush and some red paint. The bloody handprint on the curtain is made from red vinyl.
The shower mat and the knife are both from the Silhouette Design Store (Knife: Design ID #116580 by Studio Ilustrado and Mat: Design ID #1565 by Silhouette)
I know this isn’t for the faint of heart, but it was so much fun for me to make and to able to actually create an idea that just pops into my head, is fantastic.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed this bloody project and all the other Halloween projects I’ve made throughout the month. Thank you so much for joining me and my vivid imagination.
Now it’s time to turn my attention towards something else.
