Dia de los Muertos Mixed Media Collages


These are some mixed media shadow box collages I made for a local event a few years back. I started with a 12×12 canvas, then cut out body shapes from magazines and painted big skulls for the heads. Then Patrick made some frames from wood measuring sticks and I ripped and glued assorted papers, added oil pastel edges, glitter and wow – I love how they turned out!


Love & light,

  1. I just made two new paintings for Dia de los Muertos. I am inspired to make an altered piece after visiting and also going to the link you shared. My painting is a tribute to the memory of my mother. I hope you can drop by and see it. I love what you did in memory of your father~
