Dia De Los Muertos Calavera

Happy Friday Friends!!  Do you have big plans this weekend?  I'll be participating in a craft fair on Saturday then relaxing on Sunday :D

I've been having so much fun working on Halloween and Fall projects this year, I hope you're not getting tired of them yet.  I'll be turning my attention to Christmas before you know it, so just bare with me a little longer ;D.  Today I have a Dia De Los Muertos Calavera to share with you.

This started out as a paper mache skull from Michaels and I just went to town with all the beautiful bright paints I could find in my bin.

I did everything freehand and tried to let it just flow.

Here's a look at the other side.

The roses are all by Paper Studio.

I love the way this turned out.  This year was the first time I've ever worked on any type of Day of the Dead project and I have to tell you it's been really nice to learn about this part of my culture.  Right now I'm working on a few more skull ornaments before I finish up with all my Halloween projects.  I'm hoping to get them finished up tonight for the fair tomorrow.  Well, I better get to work!  Thank you so much for stopping by today for all your kind comments.  Have a wonderful weekend!!!
