Saint Teresa Altar
I'm excited to finish the altar I've been working on the last couple of days! It features St. Teresa on a plaster plaque, that I hand crafted and painted. I added roses, flowers, crosses, a sacred heart with wings, and a banner that reads "MEMENTO MORI". The Latin phrase meaning, "remember death". This piece has everything! I'm going to continue offering hand painted altars as we get closer to Day of the Dead (Nov.2nd).
I also am still having fun painting the papier mache, skull masks. :) I completed a very girly one, it's pink with a cupcake, butterflies, and hearts.
You can find both of these goodies on eBay this week!
