LOC Challenge #24 - Cute vs. Creepy

It's time for another challenge at Left of Center Challenges. The sponsor for our Cute vs. Creepy challenge is Meljen's Designs.  I got to work with this fabulous image called Sugar Skull 1.

I started by coloring my skull with pencils and then cut out to add to my mini journal.  For the background on my journal page I started with some pages from a book and glued them down.  Well when I cut them I was first planning on an ATC so they were smaller than the pages in my journal...  opps.
So to hide that I added the black squares around the edge of the pages with a sharpie.  Then I sprayed some black dylusions ink. Then I scribbled with water color crayons along the top then let them drip down.  Then to add a bit of contrast I outlined my black squares with white paint pen.  Popped my colored skull off the page with some foam tape and voila, a fun and messy page to create.
Now head on over to the LOC blog to check out the amazing creations from the DT and then show us your cute vs. creepy creations.
