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.

Hello my crafty friends! This fortnights challenge over at Left of Center Challenges is scary stories and our fabulous sponsor is Ike's Art.

I chose to use this scary guy in my mini-journal. I colored him with pencils and then cut him out to foam mount on the page. My background was created with water color crayons, dylusions ink spray and sharpie markers.
Please come join us this week at LOC and play in our scary story challenge.
