    I will add my page later. Love warm oranges and turquoise. Absolutely hate sugar skulls with a passion. I think the artwork is always spoiled by the "canvas " it is painted on. But I love that the world became smaller in the sense that we can appreciate each others cultures.

    I had no idea about mexican art so this took me ages. Here in New Zealand as me about pacific art and I would be well familiar.
    So here is my effort.

    I was inspired by the gorgeous deep colors in the Huichol yarn art and of course all the flowers!

    This is for the Art Journaling October Week 1 Muse. This was HARD, but I'm really pleased with the challenge. Not only did I complete a layout, but now I'm not freaked out by DdlMuerte anymore!

    The colored butterflies represent the living, the white our beloved dead.

    Not my usual style, but these challenges are certainly pushing me out of my comfort zone lol.
