Get me outta here... I'm armless!...D

Well here we are with the first challenge of 2014 for the Altered Eclectics.   The theme as usual is Anything Goes - so out come the canvas lol.

I wanted to use some skeletons - I just love them as so humorous.  I used a brick mask and modelling paste for the background using black and silver to highlight the bricks.  For the mound of rubbish I applied a lot of black tissue paper to give diension.  Needed alot for the skeleton to sit on top just pondering what to do next.  I cut up one skellie to spread parts of body in the pile of refuse.  One skellie looking over the wall to help the one out who has lost his arm severed from elbow while their buddy sits and watches all the action and decides to chill out.(and no skellies do not bleed lol).

Well that is it I am afraid, not much else to say except come on over and join in with out new challenge - we would love to see you all.

Now for the pics

Hugz and love as always
