Striking - Mixed Media ATC

The polka dot background is from a notecard I cut up. I layered a piece of lace and ric-rak with staples on top of  book page with mesh material. I stamped the lady and the work striking on paper. Added glitter glue and a sequin star.

Found Poetry Illustrated

I created these artist trading cards for a swap on AFA. We were to find our words on a book page background and then draw a picture to go with it. This technique has actually always been one of my favorites to create. It's so fun.

Here is what I came up with for the swap.

All hand drawn and colored with Bic markers.

'Bremen Town Musicians'. I had never heard of this before. It turns out it is a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. If you're not familiar with the story, you should check it out.
