I am a member of the 'Monthly Art Journal Challenge' group on Facebook and we are in the process of going around the World - this month we are in Mexico. I have never been to the actual country as had problems with weather a couple of times whilst on Cruise Ships so the ship could not get in to the harbour but here is my interpretation of the theme. They celebrate 'The Day of the Dead' every year with music, song and lots of colour so this was a great chance to use my new stamps from Sheena Douglass. I used a variety of mediums including Pan Pastels, Distress Inks with a few Sparkle pens thrown in. I also used for the first time my fab firework mask...bought a long time ago and never used. I added the thread of skulls down the side...again bought and never used.
So that is it for Mexico...we move to another country on June 1st...wonder where we will go?
