How was your Halloween? Given it was the warmest Halloween on record here in the UK I didn’t think our number of callers was as high as it might have been. There were mainly large groups, rather than twos and threes, and they were accompanied by groups of parents who huddled at the end of the drive looking as if they would rather be doing anything other than chaperone their offspring. By 8.30pm it was clear that there would be no more callers which pleased Mr Beez no end!!
Halloween may be over but I’ve found a way to sneak in a couple more skull themed projects as today and tomorrow is , as suggested by the title of this post, the Mexican holiday “Day of the Dead.” First up is a card that was made using an image from the Gecko Galz Day of the Dead collage sheet and paper from the Coven paper pack:
I’ve teamed it with bright pink, adding some ribbon, roses and punched black foliage.
My second project is an altered papier mache skull that I originally intended to use for Halloween:
I gave it a couple of coats of white acrylic paint and then a top coat of Mod Podge Sparkle. I used Promarkers to add detail to the teeth and eyes. Paper roses, hears and some tiny teardrop gems add further detail.
Now if you haven’t already check out the Gecko Galz Annual Blog Hop, be sure to check out the post pinned to the front of my blog – there are lots of fabulous free collage sheets to collect as well as loads of inspiration provided by the rest of the Design Team.
Now Mr Beez is already asking when the Halloween decorations are coming down. Surely an extra day won’t hurt will it? Thanks for buzzing by.
