From Beautiful Tattoo to Baby Blanket: Inspiration is Everywhere If You Look for It

sugar skull and baby blankets

Sometimes I find inspiration in the most unusual places.

One day my Facebook feed surprised me with something I don't usually see.  Instead of baby pictures and politics (yuck!) I was presented with some of the most beautiful tattoos I'd ever seen.  All of them were of sugar skulls and some of them were absolutely dazzling.  

I've always had a fascination with tattoos.  And I absolutely LOVE sugar skulls.

I have to admit that I don't have any tattoos, but I've come close on several occasions.  Turning your body into a living piece of art has a very tantalizing allure to it.  But I digress.

These beautiful images got my creative juices flowing.  The next thing I knew I had my linoleum carving block out and I was carving sugar skull design of my own.  :-)

Within a few hours it was done.  Then I was able to use it to block print on all sorts of shirts, towels, AND...baby blankets.
