Read all about it!

The Three Muses chose to ask us to use newspaper this week, in whatever form we choose! I had a marvellous flight of fancy with the small ads pages of our local newspaper from last summer, and a character card from the Majica series… “Kenny Soames went missing on Friday August 28th, whilst looking for work as a Handyman…”

Missing - Kenny Soames

Of course, I could’ve covered the entire page with little snippets of ads and obituaries, but you have to ‘draw a line’ somewhere, don’t you?! I’m so happy to be able to join in the fun this week at 3M HQ – I missed the last one. *sighs*

  10. Terrific Newspaper front page, Rosie….you could put yourself out for hire to create ‘ransom notes’ (grins). Fun reading this news. Great job!

  11. Ah Rosie, I don’t know how you do it (constantly coming up with superb artwork) but I am just glad that you do. This one is truly special. It has EVERYTHING. Wonderful, creative design, colours to die for (especially the pop of colour in the Kenny Soames picture) and a feeling of joy.

    Amazing work.
