31 drawings - one a day for the month of October from Tiny Rotten Peanuts

How do you feel about embroidery on paper? I feel happy I finished it; while I love the way it looks, the feel of the thread pulling through the paper made me feel a little woozy at first. Although I persevered and got used to it and finished the skull embroidery, and I think it’s rad.

embroidered skull drawing - drawing 8 in my 31 days of drawing challenge



I printed out this skull clip art, and transferred it onto my printmaking paper with the pencil transfer technique.

Then I poked holes evenly, all around the skull and embroidered it with a running stitch.

      DO IT. It’s lonely doing this alone. If you do your own challenge, let me know- I will be your cheerleader!

        I am about to embark on Day of the Dead and this fits it beautifully.
