Skull appreciation day and Smudgy Antics challenge

Today is Skull Appreciation Day. We will be celebrating Skull Appreciation Day by featuring handmade projects that spotlight the much-loved cranium in a wild blog hop event. There will also be give aways and tons of freebies during the hop! The hop will start at 9am Pacific time.

Today is also the start of a new challenge at Smudgy Antics, the challenge is Anything Goes, you can find all the info here.

If you follow the hop you should have come from Black Dragons awesome blog. If you got lost or want to start at the top,please go to Terra's Blog.


For more information on Skull Appreciation Day, please visit Skull-A-Day.


You can find the sponsor list here.

I combined my project for the Smudgy Antics challenge and Skull Appreciation Day and made a skull shrine:



For the shrine I used a little box.The front and the back of the shrine are made of TH Hanging Sign die.
The skull is a Smeared Ink digi that I printed 5 times, fuzzy cut and layered. To finish the skull I added some Glossy Accents that gave the skull a shiny look. The skull was glued to the back of the shrine. Below the skull are some roses and letter beads. Then I added some bling and metal corners to the front of the shrine.

Hope you will join this weeks Smudgy Antics challenge and enjoy the hop. Next stop is the very talented Helen.

    1. MaRyKay, it's to big to be a necklace, it's about the size of an ATC
