Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to our second annual Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop! This blog hop is to celebrate our craniums in all it's skully greatness. We have 40 participants this year so you are definitely going to be WOW'd with the fantastic skull art that was created for you today. In addition to all the eye candy, there will be several give-aways! So keep your eyes peeled!

For my Skull Appreciation tribute I used one of my old paper mache skulls that I had left over from 31 days of Halloween last year.  I put layers and layers of color and texture to achieve this look. I placed "his royal skully-ness" on top of a wooden sign that I decorated with rubber stamps, spray inks, lace tape, acrylic paints....and cut out foam hands. The feet (luckily) were already attached to the sign, so I just included them while I was painting. The words "Skull Appreciation" are foam letters that I colored with my distress inks. I hope you like it!

Now - I have a few other announcements to make so bare with me! You'll want to read it tho, I promise!

In honor of Skull Appreciation. Smeared Ink is having a 25% Off All Digis Sale!! Starts today and expires 6/11/12. The discount is applied at checkout. Happy Shopping!
