girly skull

Happy thursday everyone! yay the weekend is almost here! it is the 7th anniversary of 9/11 and although i dont live in the US I still want to acknowledge all the people who gave their lives to save others. This event influences people all around the world. on to a happier subject... my pretty cute little mini book i am still working on! when i showed it to my mom she was like "Woooo pretty flowers! ...oh there is a skull." she doesnt get the awsomeness of the Tim Holtz kind of skull. i love it and i wish there was a whole pack of just grungeboard skulls! i also am loving the cute little hinges! they are so great and i love using them on mini books! just awesome!
i love the crackle paint. it is really very wonderful! for this hinge i got the brown swirls to show through the crackle paint. First i covered the whole hinge in choclate chip ink. then after i painted it the colour began to "bleed" through. You can see most of the swirls.

Supply list:
  • ink- choc. chip (SU), tea dye distress ink
  • Paper- math grid paper (nothing fancy here! lol)
  • Stamps- a bunch of differnt tiny words all SU but i dont know the exact sets
  • other- grungeboard hinges and skull, prima flower, dollar store flower, button, SU brads, antique linnen crackle paint, SU spiral punch, brown mylar sticky stuff (used for tabs), cerial box (hehe)
