Dia del Los Mavis

Well I decided it was time Mabel had a girlfriend to gossip on the shelf with, so please welcome
Now Mavis was totally inspired by this vid from Martha of Ayala it!!! Here's another link up, it is so cool :D
I had a spare skull lying around, as you do, so after watching Martha's VIDEO, I got stuck in...
1st layer...white gesso...

2nd layer...watered down black acrylic...

3rd layer...white and yellow acrylic...

...inside, black acrylic.

Now for the decorations.
I have a box of white paper flowers(cos you never know what colour your going to need)

Selected a few, and coloured them with inks...

PURDY colours ...:D

I also have a box of tiny bouquets ... 

Glued layers together to build mega flowers...

and made Mavis B E A utiful!!!

I gave her a 20's style band and hairdo...but I need table-tennis balls for her eyes(and the manthings hid them all to stop me borrowing them)
Enjoy :D XXX
and watch the VIDEO
