31 Day Challenge Day 23 - Inspired By A Movie

When I as trying to think of which movie I should use as my inspiration I had several in mind. I love Alfred Hitchcock, I became obsessed with his movies when I was around 12 years old and went crazy watching every single movie he ever made. The very first one I saw was Psycho and it is still one of my favorites. Some of my other Alfred Hitchcock favorites are Charade, Suspicion, VertigoRear Window, The BirdsThe Man Who Knew Too Much,  I could go on... LOL

But, back to Psycho. I'm sure you all know what it's about - if you don't, where have you been? LOL Most people remember the shower scene (and accompanying music) which can be heard in the video below. (This is just an image and music, not the actual scene from the movie.)










And now for the mani. I did a black and white background (I sponged black, white and grey over a grey background) and added some "blood drips" at the top using a striping brush. I am very pleased with how this turned out.

  1. This is so awesome! Psycho was my first Hitchcock movie too. It's also my favorite. I still need to see so many of his others, especially Vertigo. Jimmy Stewart is in it and I absolutely love him!
