Working Skeletons

Hello crafty gypsy friends!  I'm over on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog today sharing a little skellie triptych made with the Arch Top House Silhouettes.

The first thing I did was match the personality of my three skeletons with paper bits, outlined them with pencil and cut out.

I lined up the silhouettes with about 1/4-inch between them and added Linen Hinge Tape on each side.

A scoring tool or some such thing will help adhere the linen tape strips to each other.

I added black gesso on the edges and on the linen tape, then used matte medium to adhere the paper to each side.

A gold marker on the edges for a little pizazz.
