I know I'm early....

... but Halloween has been on my mind.  Thanks to a church sale a few weeks ago, acquired a free baby doll that was perfect to attempt my first Dia de Los Muertos skull.  As shown, I took the doll apart and looking back, should have left it together.  But I'm sure I'll find a use for the legs & arms (had a cloth body).  Will be looking for more dolls to experiment with.  Might even evolve into planters.  We'll see....

And the results are in.

Visited Indiana State Fair Thursday night - pre opening visit to see how my entries did.  The cards entered in the classification of Mixed Media were awarded 1st place and 3rd place.
The button board received honorable mention ribbon.
The entries are amazing and diverse - hope to return next week when fair in full operation and visit the arts building again.
