It's the first Monday of the month and time for another round of crafts from the Designer Crafts Connection! This month, we're all about Halloween, so get ready for some spookiness!
This month, I'm making a Day of the Dead Skull. I found the perfect surface - a Lace-Up Skull from Eye Connect Crafts. Erin has new products that are perfect for Halloween - a spider, cats, a bat and an owl along with the skull. They're perfect for cards, mixed media or decorating the house.
Here's the Lace-Up Skull:

It's nice and large, so there is lots of surface to embellish, which is the fun part. Here it is out of the package and popped out of the background.

Here it is on a darker background:
And, don't forget that the background of the skull holds its own possibilities. You can use this over and over to draw or stencil more skull outlines.
