Marsha Siddoway created 5 wild and crazy assemblage pieces for the Dia de la Muerte exchange, that are each as wild and different as can be.  If you ever open a package and your hair just starts flying around your face before you even know what's inside, it's gotta be something from MarsART.  Wooden frames and mini bookcases are transformed into wildly imaginative shrines...computer generated graphic backgrounds are layered with, well let me use Marsha's own words..S.P.
Let me see, the mask....
does that mean the 3D faces? Would you believe I just cut one of those six-pack-o skulls you get at Michaels for $2 and cut the back side off. On some I used Halloween plastic rings and others skeleton face and arms, I believed to hook over something.  As for the milagros, I sort of thought everyone would use them.  I found them on ebay.  If you look under day of the dead you will find them.  I had also made a few homemade charms.  I haven't figured what type of press to use but I have these antique metal dies that I rub with foil.  They are way cool and spent way too much for them so I have to invent ways to use them.  I have been researching metals and the making of dies so who knows what I might come up with.  I know that sometimes really the words complete the project.  The funny little arms, animal and people charms, they are supposedly made by a little old Mexican lady who has to take them to the bus by donkey, then they travel to Texas.
