Thank you for joining in on The 2nd Annual Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop sponsored by Smeared Ink !!! This day was made special by Noah at Skull-A-Day blog, who has done exhibited his artwork for several years. During the past 12 months he has painted over 100 skull paintings! His blog is also a depository for others' artwork, skulls found in miscellaneous objects like toast aka simulacra, anything to do with the human skull. There's a link to his page on my sidebar.
To go along with this hop, Smeared Ink & the Smeared & Smudged Forum have many, many sponsors who have offered prizes (we all love prizes, right?). See listowner Terra's More Smeared Ink for the list of those generous sponsors.
Here is my paltry offering:
First of all, please forgive the poor quality of the scan. Had hoped to get my dd to take a pic, but she got home long after I went to bed, and if and when my dd rises, I'll get a proper pic of the entire coffin & the "goodies" inside. I painted a chipboard coffin black, put feet on the bottom using spools. I took black aluminum craft foil ran it thru with an Cuttlebug embossing folder of gears and clocks, then sanded it down to reveal the silver color. The skull image is from Smeared Ink's "Quoth the Raven" stamped & cut out 6 times, fussy cut, glued together w/silcone glue & dipped in clear UTEE. I also added an Idealogy metal plaque with the word Time stamped & used Crackle Accents. The insides will be revealed...
There is a blog hop list to your right -----> on my sidebar, in case you veer off the beaten path. I'll be entering this in Smudgy Antics Challenge Anything Goes.
**hope to have pics soon**
