October Challenge

Post  Cornish on Mon Oct 01, 2012 1:34 pm

I have a sneaky feeling you might not like this months challenge as much as the last but Nov and Dec are a bit easier honest Very Happy

The theme is sort of Haloween ish, it is a celebration that takes place at a simular time to halloween and is very popular in Mexico.

So this month challenge is

Day of the Dead

For a bit of help here is a link to wiki about the day of the dead. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_dead

And for extra incentive this months challenge is a Prize Winning Challenge can't wait to see your creations. Very Happy

Ahah! And it's also Tinker's Birthday Smile
To my mind it's sort of like a mexican twist to all saints/all souls which the catholics have, but I could be off base there.

Fabulous mood board though, might have to print that one out for the studio art Very Happy

I was tempted to make the sugar skulls but I ended up making these rather sparkly crystal skulls.

Here's my entry. It is a kumihimo bracelet (surprise, surprise!!) made out of agate chips and red chrystals. If the skulls look a bit familiar it is because I bought a string of these howlite skulls last year and used half of them in my halloween entry. It seemed a waste not to finish them up this year! This bracelet is not suitable for a loner because you need a friend to tie the bow!

Sorry mine is very late! It was Paul's 40th yesterday, we're still recovering.........
It's made from polymer clay and alcohol inks and is based on the flower patterns on the skulls.
