It's Friday and it's my day to play. Today was a chance to push down the girly side that I have had to let loose lately and let the dark reign.
The main skull is one I had left over from last October and Halloween that I hadn't got round to doing anything with. I sealed with PVA and painted black then with an irridescent paint.
To this I stuck on tiny red gems in swirly patterns, painting red luminous dots between the gems and in other areas. Stuck some digi sugar skull pics with mod podge round the base and added a skull, stamped onto tissue paper, image (Lost Coast) to the top. Finished off with a skull ring, again from last Halloween. The eye sockets were painted in the same red luminous paint.
The ring itself flips open to reveal some red lip gloss (at the moment).
Now I needed something to put it in. I altered a box that was sitting waiting for a make over and, as luck would have it, just the right size.
I started by covering with cheap paper to cover the writing already on it. The material I wanted to use is very sheer.
Some more skully images to go round the sides. These are all from Delicious Doodles.
The skeletal candle holder is on the two sides
Loves faded memory on the front
Rose corner on the top
All images were coloured with pencils to give that lovely old and faded look and both the rose corner and loves faded memory images were ink distressed with aged linen and tattered rose DI. I couldn't find a piece of lace I liked in my stash so plumped for the black organza ribbon with a little rose and added a few little creamy pearls to the rose image.
A long post I'm afraid but there was quite a bit to it.
