Aunt Linda and Tags

I was out at Patti's yesterday with some plain manila mail tags. They are no longer plain!
And as is usually the case I came away even more inspired than when I started. You'd think that 5 straight hours of arting would leave me wanting to go play table tennis or something, but no. I went home and finished up a portrait of my aunt Linda that I'd started a while back and got stalled on. Somewhere on the road home it suddenly clicked in my head and I knew how I wanted to finish it. I love when that happens!
I used some of our Mad Hatter's Tea Party paper as a border... I sure get a lot of mileage out of our homemade papers.

Seth sure started something, didn't he!? Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I visit you for the first time but BOY, some amazing art here!!! And because you mentioned "the mad hatter" I got even more curious... (I did an online Alice in Wonderland Journal Swap recently - and my theme was the mad hatter....) Anyway, you're in my faves so I'll be back!
