Happy October friends! It is the first of October, the beginning of a season of holidays, cool weather, and lots of falling leaves.
I found this awesome Sugar Skull 6 X6 Template, and added it to my New Mini Art Journal from Ranger. I have been having so much fun painting, printing, and technique testing in my larger Ranger journal, that when the smaller size ones came out, I knew I had to have one of those to carry with me when attending classes, and spending the day relaxing and refreshing outdoors.
The Crafters Workshop carries this stencil in both the 6 X 6 and the 12 X 12" sizes. I have always wanted to build a shrine to loved ones gone before me, for Dias de Los Muertos celebrated the first of November. I have a month to experiment on what I want to include in my shrine, so stay tuned here, to see what I come up with. I like things that are different, and unique, and if they are made-by-hand, that is even better. My family always appreciated hand made arts and crafts, so I'm sure my shrine will contain mainly hand made items in it.
I have many projects planned for the coming month, so check back with me, and be sure to leave me comments on the projects I will be sharing. I really appreciate your comments, and hope to keep in touch with you. Enjoy Fall, and create something yourself. Hand-made is always better!
