Halloween assemblage - Day of the dead style skeletons

A little Halloween craft fun. Last year I made the two skeletons using papier-mâché and this year I made a little scene for them to inhabit using the back of a deep wooden panel. The panel was first painted, then the tree was cut from cardboard with papers pasted on and painted to give texture. The leaves I made from my hand-painted papers and using the Tim Holtz ‘Garden Greens’ dies with my Sizzix Big Shot. The deer I bought from Flying Tiger last winter with this project in mind. The panel is fairly large and measures 50 x 40 x 5 cm. Not quite complete yet. Just want to add something else but not sure what just yet!
