In Loving Memory

I created this Day of the Dead skull in memory of my sister who passed away recently.  The paper used, I made from the tree that used to grow outside our bedroom window – when we were children.  I embedded roses and dried orchids in the paper, embroidered the features and spider web detail and used felt, copper brads, text and lace and hand made flowers to embellish.   Creating this piece was very cathartic for me and has helped me find a way to say goodbye and and to always remember her beauty.

Thank you!
