August Quote of the month

The August quote is: "There is a wisdom of the head, and a wisdom of the heart" Charles Dickens

I got a head start on this one now that I have most of my other swaps finished. While rooting around in my craft room I came across a piece that I had never finished from and online course that I took and thought I would use it for the August Q.O.T.M.

The background was done on watercolour 140LB coldpress paper and the body and head were already attached. I took some ephemera pieces and coloured them with chalk inks and attached them to the piece. Found some nice heart stickers and added them around the piece. Did the saying on my label maker machine and attached it and am quite happy with the finished item. This is a totally different colour pallette for me as I normally work with blues and greens, but I like the vibrant tones.
Now my biggest problem will be to find some cardboard and a large enough envelope to mail it once the partners list is posted.
