I used an inspiration photo for my project today! Here is the photo that I used:
I decided to use Indie art for the skull because it had such a defined skull cut. Cut at 4 3/4" first in white, then I used some scraps to get the exact cuts that I wanted:
I lined up the strips of colored paper and taped them together on the back and re-cut the skull. This gave me exact pieces to put over the white. I then just pieced the skull together!
No Day of the Dead Skull is complete with out beautiful flowers and bling!
Completed by adding background paper run through the Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen Folder.
I hope you enjoyed my project! Come back tomorrow for another project and giveaway!
