Aaarr Matey!

For something completely different than my usual collage subjects, I've been working on developing some skull and crossbones images to use in a wearable art project I've been wanting to do for some time.

These are scans of two of the base images I created using bristol board cutouts (from the kiddies' section at Michaels). I took my acrylic paints and basically dry-brushed the surface of the bristol board to get the rustic, weatherbeaten look I was after. I think they turned out quite well, IMHO.

The next step will be to transfer the images to muslin, which can then be affixed to whatever piece of clothing I decide upon. I'll share more photos when I get to this stage. Stay tuned, ye scurvy dogs!!!
