Skull Appreciation Day with Smeared and Smudged! Members blog hop!

Good morning my artsy friends, I have a few items to share with you today in recognition of Skull Day!

The members of Smeared and Smudged has worked very hard to bring you some awesome Skully goodness. It’s that time again for our monthly blog hop, and yes you guessed it, it is all about skulls! I have a blog roll for you on my side bar. You should have come here from Lisa.

For my first project I beaded a necklace. Most of the bead I got at Micheal’s craft store. The cool looking Skull glass bead I ordered from “Over” (I have never ordered from there before, but I could not find skull beads in any store and was very surprised to find them there.) The “Evil Eye” glass beads are a purplish color and I got them at Micheal’s, same with the rose charm and pendent. For the earings I used bottle caps, colored my Sugar Skulls, from Smeared Ink, then added “Crystal Effects” to it.

For my tag I used “Plaque-As Death” I colored it w/ greys and a red Copic. for the bottle cap I used “Dance-As Death” both of these digi stamps are from Smeared Ink. The senitment reads “Death is not Forever” For the “Death is not” I printed it from my computer onto SU’s Velum. The metal “Forever” is from stash so is the black half pearls. The 2 red 3mm half pearls I received from “Pizzazz a Plenty” The 2 screws are brads and I got them from my Smeared and Smudge Secret Sister (I think they are really cool I have not ever seen any thing like that before.) I used Stickles in “Black Diamond.” The background paper is from Harley Davidson, I also used a silver metallic pen on the sides.
