November Art Lottery

Rosie was the winner of last month's Art Lottery on NGS. She choose the theme of "spirits" for Novembers Art Lottery. She's leaving the interpretation up to us. I wanted to use one of the pieces of paper that was used to lift off paint and embossing powder when creating the "Resist This" backgrounds I made from Bernie Berlin's class last month. I like turning what some people might throw away into art.
I just needed a small piece of this paper for my ATC. An ATC sized piece cut out of a manila folder is used to choose what portion of the page to use in my project. I was given this folder when I took a Lovely Layers class earlier in the year. You can see how I've used this folder in another post. This is a fabulous tool to have and costs very little to make.
I cut out the portion I wanted to use and added it to thicker card stock and colored the edges with black Stazon ink. I added an "art" quote on Vellum, metal stars (I colored with silver alcohol ink) and an image of a little sprite, perhaps an art muse.
