SHARI!! This is absolutely incredible!! I LOVE this!! Your background is exquisite, the colors are inviting, and the overall message is superb!! I love how you added the text across the boy's mouth to express the word "Secret". Very well thought out and very well illustrated!

Wow! This is totally cool!! How did you make that awesome background?

Believe it or not---the background started out as a piece of scrap newsprint that I was using to protect my workspace. I always work on newsprint. I use the leftover paints from projects that I am working on and just swipe it on using a credit card and smoosh the paint around. This piece had writing on it (several phone numbers I had jotted down that day!) and random rubber stampings (I was mounting new rubber that I bought at Art Unraveled and needed to try the stamps out). I later mounted the paper on a 6X6 piece of illustration board before doing the collage. Glad you liked it!!
