Colorfully Creepy in June……..Posted: June 18, 2013
Yeah, it isn’t October yet, or the first of November, but I made happy skeleton tags. All of the color of Hawaii has permeated my mind, and the beautifully and brilliantly colored Dia de Los Muertos Kit from Gauche Alchemy popped into my mind when I started to create. I started with this sugar skull stamp from Viva Las Vegastamps!, which is in the kit. I colored the flowers in jewel tones, and then simply embellished with the ephemera and goodies in the kit.
Next I created a silly and fun dancing skeleton tag, using another Viva Las Vegastamps! stamp.
I started by watercoloring the background , to give skeleton man a place to dance. That’s when I discovered the resist technique (by accident) I’m going to share tonight for my UStream class. Look carefully to the right of his knee….it looks suspicious. 🙂
I also gave Skelly a smiling skull to play with (weird, yeah), and Dia de Los Muertos roses to dance by his feet and in the air. Bright lace and ribbon give a flourish to the top, and washi tape gives it a vintage touch.
Before I say aloha for this post, I’ll share a sneaky peek of a layout (I super love) that will be up on the Helmar blog tomorrow……as my education team share!
Thanks so much for popping by today! Love and Gnome Glitter~ A
