Skull appreciation day Blog Hop with Smeared Ink.

Hello lovelies! If you happened upon this post just by visiting my blog, thank you very much. If you want to participate in the Skull Appreciation Day blog hop, please start your hop here. If you are following the SAD hop, you should have come from Alison’s blog. My name is Jewel, and I am cajunstampingqueen’s daughter. A few days ago she told me about the Skull Appreciation day blog hop and I wanted to contribute my artwork into the hop as well! I started out with one painting, but in the end I wound up with two!
The first painting I did was a skull that I sketched out on a canvas. He has flowers and flower veins coming out of his eyes and head. He is silver and sparkly, plus he has an awesome smile. At first, I wasn’t too happy with this guy but with the help of my wonderful and creatively fantastic mom, she helped me find the beauty in what I tried to make in the beginning. IMG_0230
During the time that I wasn’t so confident with the first painting, however,  I started working on another one. He is a pink sugar skull, and he believes  that he is the king of everything! He wears a massive silver crown on top of his pink head! He is surrounded by  cut-out flowers in an assortment of colors, and he is very bright and festive.

My mom made a fantastic project! It’s so awesome that I would love it if she made me one as well! She used safety pins, silver wire, a few beads and skull heads and turned them all into one bracelet! It’s silver and gray, and the skull heads are little charms. They’re extremely charming if I do say so myself!

Her bracelet was also made for the Junk Funk challenge on the Smeared and Smudged forum.

Great job! I like both your paintings, especially the first one. How about you and your Mum creating together? That's just lovely! And her pin/skull bangle is pretty cool too!

Jewel...welcome to blogland and thanks for sharing your beautiful paintings! I love that you sketched the skulls yourself! I was too timid to try that. Both paintings are fantastic. Your first painting is very elegant with a bittersweet romantic feel. I love the colors and the overall design. Your second painting is very whimsical and fun. You have definitely inherited your mom's talent and it is awesome that you two create with eachother. I hope to see more of your work in the future!

Kelli...for real? That bracelet is sic! I just love it and must learn how to make such things of beauty!
