Mixed Media Monday - Vintage Children




Give me one papier mache house, acrylic paints and a variety of PaperWhimsy vintage children and I am in creative heaven. I have always been drawn to the haunting nature of the PW images and I'm thrilled that they are now available in digital form. This means that I can weave them into my artwork whenever I am in the mood. This is my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week.
