Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House--VIVP

This is my first ever Macabre Monday here at HDH...
 The challenge this week is to make something VINCENT PRICE related in honor of his turning 100 this year (back in May) and in honor of HDH's 100th post.

I made a Tribute to Vincent Price in the form of a Triptych Gothic Arch
The front; right flap
a wonderful portrait in True Hollywood Star Style!

 The  Left flap
Vincent and his fellow Horror Buddies:
Peter Lorre, Bella Lagosi, and Boris Karloff
this is a great picture but awful photo (I am going to try again---you can see it much clearer in the combined photo below)  I went ahead and scanned it

 The inside, with just a short mini bio of his introduction into the entertainment business

The back, also showing the 2 front flaps
there is a bit of filmography here on the back.


The card stock started out as a solid Ivory.
I misted it all over with Solar Gold Radiant Rain, Iridescent Green Radiant Rain, Yellow Iridescent Radiant Rain by LUMINARTE and Bronze, Copper and Jack-O-Lantern Shimmering mists by TATTERED ANGELS, then used a Flourishes Stencil by LAYERS OF COLOR, along with  Deep Violet Shimmering Mist by LUMINARTE. In places it looks violet, and some others more of a dark gray, but above all it is stunningly sparkly & shimmery!
All of the images of Mr. Price are from the Internet search that HDH provided. I I turned one green immediately. Another I placed into "paint" and blacked out everything but his fave and hand with knife (this was actually a photo of him playing around in the kitchen with a roast of some type while wearing a striped apron, his other hand held a "sword-style" knife sharpener)
After it was blacked out I turned the remaining part of the image into red.
I used self-adhesive Matte Sparkle Bats and self-adhesive Epoxy Glitter blood Splats; both by MARTHA STEWART.

Both excerpts on this Triptych were also gathered at the sites HDH recommended.
