New Release from SLSLines

Hi Bloggers

Today I am sharing one of the great New Release images from

I was lucky enough to be able to play with the image

Day of the Dead Sugar Skull 3

I love the whole Sugar Skull trend and wanted to make something for me with this image, so I decided to use it on a page in my Doodle Smash! Book. I've not smashed for well over a year but I really enjoyed doing this page
I coloured the fab image in 3 different colourways so I could decide which one I wanted to use ............ and ended up using all 3 :)

I coloured them all with my ProMarkers and stuck them to torn pieces of papers from my offcuts draw. While I was colouring them I thought that a sugar skull would be the perfect thing to cover an old tattoo of mine and decided to have a go at drawing my own

I had so many ideas that I decided I should really do some research about them. I am going to have another go at designing my own to celebrate my nan, who we lost 14years ago, and as she loved nothing more than to be in the garden there will be no trouble having lots of flowers, leaves and curly tendrils on my skull
So back to my project. I wanted my page to be kinda interactive so quite simply attached my skulls with washi tape so the images flipped open to reveal my own attempt underneath

I hope you like my take on this fab new digi image, and don't forget to head over to the main blog where you will find all the other DT members great makes with all the New Release images

Happy Crafting
