Day of the Dead!

A few years ago I decided to have a fall party.  Not wanting to be like everyone else, I decided to make the theme “Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead!”   But being a white girl, and having many friends who didn’t understand this theme, only my “Artsie Fartsie” friends showed up.  They really get me!

I did this for a few years, and still, only my “Artsie Fartsie” friends showed up, with few exceptions.

So today I’m going to post some of the skulls I created for these parties.

They were fun to do, and though time-consuming, it felt really good to complete some dozen or more skulls.

I think we had four large, and ten or twelve small skulls……..

All decorated differently.

I hoped you had fun seeing a different kind of artwork, and  that it will give you some inspiration to create something outside the box.

Note:  Outside the box probably depends on where you live, and what you already create!
