"Damn your eyes! Too late."

As soon as I saw the new challenge at Stampotique ,
I immediately knew what movie I was going to choose.

My all time favorite film is 'Young Frankenstein'.
I have seen it over one hundred times in it's entirety, and even 
more in pieces. I know nearly all of the lines by heart and still 
laugh out loud like I'm watching it for the very first time.
It's timeless, in my opinion. Even though I was only four years old
when it was released in 1974, and I am generally not a big black and white
movie fan, this is my very favorite film ever.   

I decided to immortalize it my small Dyan Reaveley art journal.
But it needed a two page spread. There was no way I could fit
all of this awesomeness on only one page.

I used "Jammin'" to perfectly represent The Monster
I added the top hat from the hat cube, and added a satin black bow tie
and a hand drawn cane to mimic the iconic "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene.  

I found a cool movie poster on google and chopped it in half
to go on either side of that awesome YF quote artwork.
I stamped some brains to create a border of sorts and heat embossed them
to make 'em all shiny and for a fun texture.   

I chose "Gonno" to represent Doctor Frankenstein, pronounced, "Fronkensteen". 
It was his crazy mad scientist hair that cemented this choice.
He also received a top hat and bow tie to complete his dapper look.  

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
