Day of the Dead with May Arts and Faber-Castell

 It’s that time of year where people start thinking of candy, orange leaves, witches, skulls, and Day of the Dead.  May Arts teamed up with Faber-Castell and boy did we get to play!  This is a week-long event so be sure to check the May Arts blog for the full line up.

I decided to bust out my stash of Gelatos and my PITT pens and paint.  My Mexican Skull mask from The Crafter’s Workshop was perfect for what I had in mind.  Besides, who didn’t love paint by number books when they were a kid?

I used a variety of Gelato colors for every aspect of this piece.  I did the outlining using a PITT brush pen as well as a PITT fine point pen. To finish off my boring, miscolored, UGLY edges, I decided to hide them under some Striped Grosgrain ribbon (336-15-10).

Be sure to hop on over to Charlene’s blog and leave some love along the way!  Consider this grown-up trick or treating!

Cheers!

    LOVE this !! I did a skull last year for part of my Halloween decor. I also have pajama pants with skulls that have flowers as eyes with lots of bright colors.
