Smeared and Smudged Skull Appriciation Hop

YAY its finally here! Skull Appreciation day hop with Smeared and Smudged!!!

You should have come here from f you stumbled upon my blog and want to join in from the beginning, please start here. there are many prizes to be won.....if you want more info on skull appreciation day I have a button on my sidebar.

I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet-ish

I made two peices using the same skull stamp (from the Quoth The Raven Smeared Ink stamp set) both are bits of a cd I cut up and painted with acrylic paints


first one I stamped my skull and used a bunch of UTEE and then added some lightly painted feathers..I think this is going to be a pin...maybe a necklace...maybe a magnet...donno yet

and second is a necklace that I used shrinkydinks added some beads and there I go...necklace!

thanks for taking a look...now off you go to see Susan's blog...or go back to the beginning...whichever...but have fun and leave lots of love! have a skull-tastic day!

love that you made jewelry ut of your projects! the feathers are very fun ...pin, maybe, but I think an earring would be great if it weren't too heavy?
