31 DAYS ~ DAY 11

Hello Halloween fans!  I have a lovely spooky project to share with you!!
So it isn't that spooky!  But, I think it is super cool!  You can find the coffin HERE.  BUT, it is the mask on top that is soooo cool!  It is a regular skull mask, or is it?  It comes with another mask to put on top of the first one that makes the teeth, the jaw bone and the outline of the cross bones!  Isn't that the coolest?  I was so excited about it!!  It is from Tando Creative and is called Skulls and Crossbones.

Inside, I put some cardboard and gauze.  Then, I colored in the digital images from Smeared Ink.  The link is on the sidebar. 
I wanted the head stone to really look like stone so I colored it grey and used some White Dylusions on it to look like the actual pitting that happens when concrete gets old!

Please click the links and get your very own coffin and supplies to make this project!!

Hope your Halloween is awesome!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
