I am A Muse

Yes I am a muse. I’m so darn excited and honored to be joining the Muse design team for 2020 at Sandra Evertson Relics and Artifacts
For the audition we were asked to make a simple project using the fabulous products from Sandra's line of goodies. "Sounds easy doesn't it ?"  But to actually pick one item to highlight was more challenging than I thought. I swear everytime I go to the site, I'm like a kid in a candy store.  

But I love this face in the visage set
At the same time I was thinking of what to do with the face. I watched a video about the Monarch butterflies arrival in Mexico each winter.  

So on November 1st the nearby forests are filled with  millions of beautiful Monarch butterflies which also happens to coincide with Dia De Los Muertos. 

And because of that amazing coincidence the butterflies are thought to hold the spirits of the departed. 
They have become part of the festival. 
So the idea of my project began to take form.

 So there it is, titled Mariposa ( butterfly )
