The one about goblins and haunted woods

New artwork.

Two spreads for Candice's book. The first was based on a page I found in an old 1920's primer....a poem about Nine Goblins. I thought that sounded like fun....making nine little goblins. The orange spatter came about from my getting a speck of orange paint on one of the little white dresses, and decided to just go on and spatter the whole thing. The other spread is a spooky wood with a Halloween-orange sky. I got the idea from a billboard I saw around here for a corn maze. The glitter crescent moon I did because I was inspired by a glittery moon I saw on Teresa's blog. :)

Oh!! the bats on the bottom piece are actually ribbon---really cute puffy bat ribbon that I cut apart.
