Today I did something a little different. I got this really cool cardboard skull from Michael's. Some of you may have seen these and I know have already used them for some awesome projects.
For my skull, I used a whole lot of Mod Podge and a whole lot of white tissue paper. I crumbled up the tissue and applied it to my skull everywhere but the teeth and the bottom. After that, I coated the top of the tissue paper in the Mod Podge to give it that extra hold and a little bit of shimmer. I used watered down black acrylic paint and Tim holtz distressing ink to color the "skin" (tissue paper).
Then, I added the spiders, two big ones and two little ones (Smeared Ink's Killer Bo Peep set). I colored them with prismacolor markers before gluing them with sone Elmer's glue to the skull - leaving portions raised up to give them some depth.
The last touch was the copper colored bow that I got from a really awesome gift that I received this week. Thanks Black Dragon!!!
Hope you love my skully-skull! Have fun hopping on this fine Saturday!!! If you need a refresher on any of the info for 31 Days of Halloween you can find it on my sidebar under the list of Wicked Blogs!!!!
