Hi there -
I love this style of artwork and just saw your post on Craftster. I have been thinking about doing something this year in honor of my loved ones who have passed, especially baby Julia who joined us in March and left us for Heaven on the same day.
You can see my story of attempting to cope with loss here:
I would link my blog to yours but I don't know how...

MaybeMonica said...

i love you stuff , super creative and it looks like you worked hard on them

Senora Muertos said...

Chemmy, that will work just fine. Thanks!

maybemoncia, it does takes some time to create them. It has alot of steps to it and you have to let it dry between each layer.

ursuladiamond, thanks! the tattoo rose sugar skull is my most favorite ever!

micaela6955 said...

wow, just found your site and think that the Paper Mache' Sugar Skull with Rose is so awesome! Hubby is from Guatemala and tells me the tales of Dia de los Muertos there-I'd love to see a procession one day. I guess they all head to the cemetery and leave bottles of booze and cigarettes on the graves of loved ones who enjoyed those vices... I asked him what happened afterwards, did the stuff just stay on the graves till next year but he told me no, he thinks the winos go in there afterwards and get the freebies...but they usually wait a day or two out of respect for los muertos...

micaela6955, I am dying to see a true Dia de los Muertos procession! WE have set up pics of loved ones and friends who have passed on our mantle with candles the past couple of years. My father passed away this year so I plan to add a few touches like his favorite alcohol and a few other touches I have not done in the past. It gives you a chance to grieve each year, in a healthy manner.
