Day 13

Triskaidekaphobia:-noun- an abnormal fear of the number thirteen

I love the 13th bummer its not on Friday! but none the less I love it...and I have heard of some very superstitious people with the number 13....when I was on tour of the Winchester Mystery House she was obsessed with the number 13 and it occurred throughout the house many times, and it wasn't until I heard the new Shooter Jennings song triskaidekaphobia that I even knew there was such a word....and now I love it! That song was the inspiration for my project, that and Terra....if you have been hoping along since the 8th you will recognize allot of similaritys....she is so amazing and I can't even begin to compare my work to hers I just attempt to imitate bits and pieces...the spiderweb spray painted, and the blag mesh bag....the image is coincidence...he just looks scared of something so it fit.
the 13 is just the metal numbers that go on your house, I also used the soot stamping technique for the first time...LOVE it!
this is hanging in my dark hallway as we speak....yay!
Thank you so much Terra for sharing your amazing mind!
This picture just turned out creepy...I love it!

You asked how I did my cup, I just stamped on it with Stazon Ink. That's all!
