I made this Halloween Decoration with this awesome 8" unfinished Skull from Say it With Letters. This is my last project as a SIWT DT Member, I will miss being on the team, but no worries, it will Not be the last SIWL project I make. I Love these shapes and plan to make Many more projects with them.
After I was done with the project I asked my son what he thought...he paused for a minute and then declared that is was "A Little Creepy!" I worried that meant he didn't like it, that is until he started telling everyone about it. He was rather proud of me, I think. :) *blush*
I started with the unfinished Skull, painted it Cream (Acrylic Paint and a foam brush,) then I added Bright Green paint to the edge and the inside of all the features. Once that was dry I went over the edges with grey ink on a sponge to give it some dimension. I then cut a piece of mostly green Designer Paper (I think it was some Basic Grey Christmas Paper) the right shape to cover all the features. I lined this up on the back and outlined all the features with a pen, I then brushed some glue all around the areas of the eyes, nose and mouth, sprinkled on some Loose Green glitter and let that dry. After it was dry I applied it to the back so the glittered showed thru the holes. I added a Cosmo Cricket Rub On bat to the cheek and a big Pearl Swirl from Prima (It was pink, but I colored it black with my Copic Marker.) Then, I adhered the skull to a 12x12 sheet of Basic Grey Spiders Web paper with E6000.
Once it was in the frame I decided it needed a little something extra, so I added some Cosmo Cricket Rub On cobwebs and some fun Crystal Embellishments...
