I love to collect and play with paper, especially making 3D items. I also love to collect fabric! I think I have a problem!!!

Enter if you dare!
Does anybody remember those skeletons that would move at their joints?
Well, I do!  And I loved them when I was a kid!
I used the skeleton body from SPOOKY SILHOUETTES COLLECTION
and a pumkin for the head from MIDNIGHT JAMBOREE KIT
from http://svgcuts.com/ to make
my version of a jointed skeleton!
He's 36" tall x 24" wide posed this way!  He is posable and has
a permanent home, for now, on my front door!
Here's a closeup of his face and a few bones!
When I broke apart the skeleton in ECAL program, I made sure
I stacked all the pieces on top of each other, keeping my eye
on the largest piece.  As I enlarged, I made sure the largest
piece fit into the boundary of the cutting mat, leaving room
knowing I will be making another larger layer of the bones,
plus a shadow piece. 
I used Tim Holtz inks for all my inking.
The Dead Zone sign is actually a styrofoam sign from the
Dollar Store and was grey in color.  I used my Tim Holtz inks,
 Salty Ocean Blue, Festive Berries Red and white, to get the look
I wanted. I was surprised how well the styrofoam took to the ink.
