I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Sugar Skull Wall Hangings

Hey everybody!  This is what I have been working on.  Since I started working full time its been kinda tough finding time so I've been doing a little here and there in the evenings.  It took me about four nights to get these done but I'm very happy with these pieces.  I had a friend order these pieces for a friend who has done her kids rooms in tattoo theme.  I placed the piece of cardstock on acrylic pieces so they can be used as a frame or a message board that you wipe off.  My sugar skulls are from Bombshell Stamps.  They normally are not this big but I stamped a few samples on white cardstock and my great Tammy enlarged them for me.  I took some grunge paper from Tim Holtz and made most of the flowers and also used his tissue tape to make the paper rosette.  I hope Rin's friend really like these pieces.  I think they are great!  Let me know what you think.
