Dia De Los Muertos...- Prima

Halloween is coming... getting closer and closer. Although it is not a popular celebration in Poland some of us do enjoy idea of dressing up and having Halloween parties :) For me making a Halloween - themed project which wasn't an altered art item was quite a challenge, but then I came to the idea of using a great photo done by my friend, Costa, during our first "Metamorphosis" session inspired by great make-up artist and collage maker, Wolfann. We were inspired by "Dia De Los Muertos" traditions...and OMG, how fun was that!!! Can you recognize the person on the photo ;)?

Dia De Los Muertos - Prima

Making of the project was 100% fun too - I went a bit more int o journaling and paint splashing, which made me happy - and I tried again some Tim Holtz/Sizzix Movers and Shapers stamping witch I loved from the first time I'd tried it:) Aren't the bats just super cute? :)))

The project is of course full of Prima supplies - used in a bit more freestyle way, but as always - impressive. Here you can find the whole supply list:

  • Item# 844813 - CRAFTSMAN- GEAR UP CDSTCK
  • Item# 561024 - RESIST CANVAS FLOWERS
  • Item# 561178 - Welcome to Paris Washi
  • Item# 558857 - CANVAS WOOD CLIPS- PARIS
  • Item# 556563 - Gear Embellishments
  • Item# 922023 - Canvas ATC's
  • Item# 551537 - Say It In Crystals

  • I'm sure it is not the end of my experiments with white background - I love the possibilities it gives, free space to play, build, design. What can be better than a plain background? SI hope you like my take on Halloween topic... I needed to breathe a bit. So I did.

    I love the idea. I will definitely try this one and put my own spin on it. Now I just have to get some "Dead Girl" makeup and get some pictures taken.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
