Shrunken Head Shadow Box

Art With No Boundaries     October and Halloween Week 4
Recycle, Re-Purpose, & Re-Invent     October Halloween and No Bones About It Week 4

The month of October has sped by, we are now in Week 4 of both our challenges on our Sister sites.
We've had a great turn out of entrants so it will be very difficult to choose who to feature this time around.
I've used the Shrunken Head 3 Digi Stamp from Chris's new collection of Shrunken Heads, brought out just in time for Halloween. 
A weathered shadow box seemed a great way to display this Shrunken Head trophy. A reminder to step lightly in life because it can be quite a jungle juggling daily life and since spiders are one of my things to avoid in life I know there are giant ones living in the jungle that should definitely be avoided. 
I colored the digi with Copic markers, covered the back of the shadow box with a leafy pattern paper and cut the shield from a scrap of pattern paper from a safari paper pack. I used some distress embossing powder to give the box a very weathered look and hung the head from some baker's twine beside the bones and shield.
You've still got time to enter both challenges and be sure to go check out the rest of the team's creations from some scary, creepy Halloween projects.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Love how this project turned out, Beverly. The aging on the shadowbox is amazing and sets the perfect stage for this creepy scene. The head is so cool and the bones and shield add to the fun. Those spiders look dangerous :)
