Day 27 of 31 Days of Halloween

I've been wicked blogging for 27 days!  This has been great fun.  Just like the quote says "inspiration exists, but it has to find you working…" (Picasso).  It has been great forcing myself to create something each day this month.  Only Four more creations to go.

Skellie Candles


Last year my daughter encouraged us to celebrate the Day of the Dead.  So we built a small alter, made some foods,  and lit some candles, and this year we can add these little decorations to our alter.
Nothing too fancy about this decor - but I feel like it has a pretty cool effect.  I just stamped some skeletons and then attached them to a votive.  One set of skellies I painted  with watercolors.

They look kind of cool.  The lighting of the candles really shows my cutting job (yikes!) - these guys are kind of delicate.  Thanks again for stopping by!
