Monkies

Monkies


About the only good thing about junk mail is that it provides me with journal fodder.  These monkies come from a political ad for Washington state politician.  They screeched to become the first new page in my altered journal from the Long Beach, California flea market.  There were quite a few happy accidents with this piece. The best one was that the background which was made first matches  the monkies clothing perfectly.

This is terrific John. I just now saw it- I love the monkeys are great and what a good use of junk mail! The colors and collage elements all work so well together. Very nice.
