Now lets get the freak show on the road!  Here is Day 1's project by me for your freakish enjoyment ;0)

Gothic Sugar Skulls Jewelry by Leigh S-B
I altered 2 small travel sized ivory coloured dominoes for the earrings and used one of LCD's Six Mini Skull stamps...these little guys are the perfect size for altered game art!
For the necklace I altered a Rummicub tile and stamped a portion of LCD's Picado Skull stamp.

All 3 game pieces were stained first with Brilliance Rocket Red ink and the images stamped with black Archival Ink.  I stained and stamped the sides too and stamped sections of the floral part of the Picado Skull image.  I used a black Sharpie marker to edge all of the game pieces edges including all the corners.  I sealed all the pieces with a couple of coats of Krylon Artist's Workable Fixative spray and then applied Judikins Diamond Glaze to all the surfaces leaving the black eye and nose sockets to create wicked dimension.

I used pre-drilled dominoes for the earrings from Tall Mouse and attached the skull charms and earring findings with wire.  The Rummy tile is too thin to drill through so I glued the wire to the back of the piece with E6000 glue.  The pendant is hung on a really cool rubbery black cord with a built in closure!

See you again for Day 2's project by DominoARTist Val S on May 3rd!
