A little different- guess that means it's Sunday!

This project is a little different than most of what I post, but I'm going to have so much fun with it. It's not any bigger than most of my tiles, but I think it's going to be in full color. I just started it so there isn't much to it, but I wanted to get today's post up for you and I have a feeling this is going to be one of those projects that just grows.
Sundays seem to be my day for tackling something new.

It's a sugar skull. I love them, I'm fascinated by them actually both the images themselves and everything behind them.
When it's done I might have it made into a phone case or a tshirt or something. I have so many ideas in my head for this one! Beetlejuice roses maybe. (My kids will be the only ones that understand that reference until I post it!)

Anyway, so today's art prompt is to find an image or symbol that calls out to you. Whatever it is and make it into something. I've been wanting to do something with a sugar skull forever but never knew what i wanted to do until I talked with a friend about it yesterday.
Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone!


  1. I'm having a hard time keeping up, too much going on in regular life. But I did manage to do something that's unusual for me. :)

    "My" kids (the ones I work with) seem to love the whole skeleton/skull thing. Particularly the little girls, who often have them printed on pink or purple t shirts and leggings. I don't get it, but that's probably because I'm old. :)

  2. Can't wait to see your finished product. It looks interesting!

  3. I worked a skull into mine too.

  4. I find I'm keeping to the same types of stuff everyday - keeping it easy. But I'm still creating everyday which is pretty amazing. Sometimes even twice a day!
