Macabre Monday #Eerie Inspiration

We're going to go easy on you guys (and our aching heads), 
with a photo inspiration challenge, we like to call,
Eerie Inspiration.    
This collage photo should be able to coax your mojo to come out to play.
Interpret this as you'd like, it's purely for inspiration. 
There is no wrong way to do this challenge.
For my project I decided to alter one of those little book boxes. I started by giving it a coat of  DecoArt Americana Lamp Black acrylic paint. Once dry a technique learnt in Andy Skinners Book of Ruination Online Class was applied and once dry painted with DecoArt Traditions Burnt Umber. The spine of the book was also given a coat of DecoArt Traditions Raw Sienna and left to dry. Once completely dry the spine was given a touch of Decoart Dazzling metallics in Glorious Gold and the front of the book given a wash of Decoart Traditions Quinacrodone Gold. Once dry some dry brushing was applied to bring out the texture. A skull was then cast using techniques learnt in Andy Skinners online class The Outcasts. Once set and completely dry the skull was then painted using techniques learnt in Andy Skinners online class Timeworn Techniques. A back drop for the skull was diecut using a spellbinders die, painted and then aged. This was then applied to the front of the book and the skull applied on top. A coat of DecoArt spray Matt sealer was then applied to protect and preserve.
