Day of the Dead assemblage with dart board

A while ago, I picked up this cool dart board at the thrift store for 99 cents. I thought it would make a great assemblage.

I added one of the skulls I had made with plaster wrap, see this post. I knew I wanted to keep the design on the skull black and white to complement the dart board. I decided to do the skull pattern in yarn, which I had done before on another piece, see this post. Originally, I was not going to alter the dart board, but then decided it would be more interesting if I put a pattern on it as well. I also used yarn for the dart board decoration. It basically took one long day to finish it, but I think it is pretty darn cool.

  1. Ginger this is way cool. Like your skeleton prints too on fabric in previous post.I still like the colors and design in the skelton collage thing I sent you. I think using some of the Tim Holtz patina inks or stains might work well in this motif. If you took a photo of this and filled in the corners with fill white it would make a neat 5 x 5 card if matted in black and white. If you have not done anything with your other skull, you could use as a base to do some zentangle or doodling. At the convention last week, Betty, had some acrylic paints called silks. Have you tried them for shimmer effect? Love Ya, Mom
