More Halloween + a Dia De Los Muertos Fairy
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far! We've had a few cooler days here this week, especially at night, so I'm starting to feel a hint of fall in the air. Which in my opinion, is the very best time of the year! I'm looking forward to the windows open, cup of tea in hand!
To get you in the mood, we have lots of new goodies in the shop with lots of Halloween. See it all HERE.
I managed to sneak in some art time yesterday and finally had a chance to play with the Dia De Los Muertos Inspiration Fairy. The Frida image came from the Art Doll Head Paper Cut set. I love adding a bit of Zentangle to 3-D objects. This shrine was actually very easy to create. Cover the pieces you plan to Zentangle with Gesso, doodle, and you are pretty much done. The wings and crown were painted with black acrylic paint and then I added some white rub-ons. I glued a bead in each eye socket and added some vintage rhinestone bling to the crown. In the niche I added a piece from the Wild Flower Background Collage Sheet and a Frida head. The doodling takes a while, but the rest is very simple!
I hope you can sneak in some art time this weekend too! xoxo
