Day of the Dead Doll Inspired by Digital Angel Wings

Day of the Dead Card

by Holly Ann Bray Designs

I was trying to utilize the digital image, Angel Wings by Charlene Woods in a new and unexpected way.  I printed several of the Wings images to color, cut and create the eyes, angel and Mexican floral wreath surrounding the skull. The huge, decorated eyes which were added to the skull were inspired by the round motifs on the bottom of the Angel's robe. I looked at Day of the Dead make-up posts on Pinterest to choose my Copic marker colors. The gems were added for dimension and sparkle. A Happy Day of the Dead sentiment and poem completed the pre-made Doodlebug Design
