Famous Last Words

I find that I am still lacking in the areas of organization and promptness
in my life. I am still a work in progress.

Today's Macabre Monday challenge (week two) is

I immediately knew what quote I was going to use, but was 
really stuck as to how to use the quote in a way that was different. 
I decided to make another art journal page, that way I could keep it 
in my book, as opposed to trying to figure out who to send it to later 
in card form. I have a hard time finding homes for a lot of my work. 

I started out using some new Dylusions spray inks, and a cool 
zombie stencil I got from Retro Art Cafe. Then, I reused the wet stencil 
to remove ink in the reverse! So cool! Dyan's tutorials are amazing!!! 

I broke out some chipboard letters to form my quote.
I used distress inks and red glitter paint on the letters.

My favorite story of all time is, "I am Legend" , by Richard Matheson.
Both, the title and the final words of the main character, Robert Neville.
"I am Legend", which was written in 1954, has been the inspiration for many films like, "The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent Price in 1964, "The Omega Man" in 1971 with Charlton Heston, and "I am Legend" with Will Smith in 2007. Vincent's portrayal of Mister Neville is still my favorite. 
Richard Matheson is such a brilliant writer. He also wrote,
"What Dreams May Come" and "A Stir of Echos", both of which
were turned into great films.
I cannot recommend him enough!
