More shrines! I made these two shrines for a Day of the Dead swap at Retro Cafe Art Gallery. This just happens to be one of my favorite themes and so I was happy to play along! My past Day of the Dead shrines have always utilized very bold primary colors and red always seemed to dominate so I wanted to broaden my color horizons a bit this time around. When I ordered supplies the orange and yellow paper roses just jumped out at me. These are usually two of my least favorite colors but I really think they worked well on the first shrine.
The second shrine I again used yellow but paired it with some red and a few orange accents. My favorite part of this shrine is the border. I think I am going to have a future love affair with the Sharpie Paint marker things I used for it!
I wish I had remembered to take photos of the sides and backs of each as they are arted up a bit too but I was in a hurry this morning
I made this skull for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap. It's a skulll pattern I got from Urban Threads. The original pattern also had lettering which named certain parts of the skulls anatomy but I left those out.
I made these two wrap bracelets for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap (I hope she has opened them ) I used recycled flip flop bangles which I cut up and threaded on to memory wire along with different Halloween charms and colored beads. The large potion charms I used in the green and purple bracelet were from a necklace that broke that I received last year. They were perfect on this project!
I whipped up this hoop for my partner in the Weekend Trick or Treat swap and also used it for the Monthly Hoopla Along since it was created in October and fit the Fall/Halloween theme. I used a back stitch (as usual) for his head and mouth then a satin stitch for his eyes and nose.
Great packages so far! I got super spoiled by Anubisheart. I have no idea how she crafted this all in one weekend.
The bag with amazing Halloween fabric. It's reversible and the inside has some really cool scorpion fabric.
Wrapped up inside the box were three bags of homemade treats which I didn't get a picture of but they were chocolate covered Nutter Butters, chocolate covered pretzel sticks, and Puppy Chow (AKA Muddy Buddies) All of them were so good and the kids and I have been munching away
Also inside the box was a fabulous addition to my Halloween costume for this year which was straight off my Pinterest. A Tutu and witches hat
Inside the bag I also found all this fabulous jewelry
Two stenciled and glittery pillow covers
A zombie head block which I love!
And some assorted store bought goodies which I suppose I may have to share with my kids :p
Thank you so much Anubisheart! I feel overwhelmed with all the great stuff you made and I hope you like your package just as much.
