I started this with a little painting I did on card stock.  It was done with pen & ink and Genisis oils .. I then scanned the little thing into my computer just to see what I could come up with .. and you all know how it is when you get going .. one thing led to another and I ended up designing a book cover for a non-existent book!!!  Anyway .. it is my work for the "October Theme" ... using my pumpkin man and a photo of the magic castle from Disney that I took on a trip there ...thanks for peeking in.   Hugs...Charlie

Nice, I would love a hand bag like that. Yep, i would.
