Skull Appreciation Day 2013

Do you know what day it is?!? Skull Appreciation Day, wahoo!  The fabulous gals over at Smeared and Smudged Forum have organized another hop for this year and I think it's the biggest one yet. 

My first project is an ATC. The image I used is Anatomy 101-skull Front from Smeared Ink. I cut her out and layered onto a black CS base that I added dots to with a metallic sharpie. I also choose a light green ribbon for her to wear as a headband because what skull doesn't want to look pretty once in a while :)


For my second project I wanted to create a journal page. I do this every year for Skull Appreciation Day and it's always fun to look back. I used the skull again, just printed larger and cut her out.  I added her to my page that I used some glimmer mist on to add color and texture to the background. You can't really tell in the pic but I also used shimmer mist on the skull to make her sparkly.  Butterflies have been on my mind lately so I added a bunch to the page. I curved their wings so they would pop off the page a bit.  The quote I found while surfing the web.  "Life's true face is the skull." Nikos Kazantzakis

Thanks for stopping by, wishing you and your skull all the best on Skull Appreciation Day!
