The one about the book cover


Artwork created on a 100 year old book cover for an "anything goes" swap in Club Creative. I have wanted to try something like this for awhile----putting elements together and not doing any painting, just assembling. Kinda like Anna Corba. I know my piece doesn't have that Anna Corba feel...I admire the way she can take old things and layer them together into something wonderful. Everything used here is old with the exception of the playing card. Cutting the hat from a playing card was something I got from Heather Simpson-Bluhm. :)

Thanks for the inspiration!
