A final project in a school unit devoted to skulls. Made with three pieces of dark green paper and this great mesh-like paper from my local art store! 10"x10"

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Just a smidgen, blair? That's what I saw first! This is so neat. That mesh paper is super sweet. Your skill amazing me. Good job.

This is super cool! It must've taken a lot of control to not rip that green paper as you were cutting those details.

I found it was easier if I cut out the inside bits first and then cut around them, but it was a little finnicky

Labrinyth all the way! My favorite part of that movie! Now where is that little British worm?

It would be neat if you continued the theme, and did like a triptic...side by side frames with different scenes from the movie? The biting fairies, and that little Hogwart/Huggle guy? And don't forget that giant fuzzy thing. I forget his name. Mr. "smell bad!". And a baby in red and white stripe PJs. Just ideas.

You did a great job with this project. Very interesting texture, and neat colors.

That's a cool thought, stillatthetop, of making a triptych. But instead of scenes from the movie make different hand faces, since this was from a school unit on skulls. The movie had lots of hand faces! Very interesting idea, no matter how it is taken.

Hah, well I'll have to admit (sheepishly) that I have not actually seen Labyrinth so related things from me are unlikely. Thanks though!
