the birthday present for my sister, that is
it's about 7 X 11 inches
the base is an old book cover
and I added lots of layers of collage,
gesso, pen, paint, oil pastel, jewels, etc.
I centered it around a vintage advertisement for a washing machine
and as I was working, a story was taking shape in my head
my sister loves retro, vintage, fun, quirky stuff
so I was thinking of her the whole time I was making this
it has her personality all over it
especially the crowns
here is the story:
of course, I used my new typewriter :)
the story is glued to the back of the piece
... all of it just for fun ...
