Dia de Los Muertos

Monday, October 29th, 2012

A nearby Art Gallery is having an exhibit/contest for local artists, the theme is Day of the Dead and the medium is Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s). Here are my entries. I used a combination of collage with stamps (traditional and digital) and some copies of vintage clip art.

Got out the Silhouette machine today and made a new vinyl sticker for my car, it goes nicely with┬áthe Harry riding his broom one I made a while back. It’s hard to tell in the photo but I used silver glitter vinyl, it looks so cool!

Here’s a┬ácouple more recent Halloween soldered charms and one not so Halloween :)

This first is a tiny black domino, I used white permanent ink to stamp on the dancing skeletons, this is perfect for Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos.

Dancing Skeleton Domino Charm

This soldered glass pendant is a cool vintage hanging bat stamp I found on Etsy. I stamped him on vintage dictionary paper.

This last one is sooooo spooky….NOT ;) It’s a Queen Bee charm necklace, the large soldered domino has beehive paper and a silver bee charm, the smaller says Queen and there is also a large silver crown charm.

I recently made several domino charms and charm necklaces for Fall and Halloween. Each domino is colored with ink and stamped with an image and then soldered around the edges.

This first one is all about one of my favorite poets Edgar Allan Poe, the round charm is a vintage wooden game piece and there is also a metal ink pen nib.

I love this cool owl image, I added another game piece with the word “who”

This one is a play on the term “skeleton key”, dancing skeletons on the domino, a metal key and skull bead

This tiny pumpkin charm also has a little leaf bead on it
