Ray Bradbury Swap
I signed up for an unusual (to me) swap with my online crafty group. The leader of the group is a BIG Ray Bradbury fan and after hearing of his recent passing she just had to propose a swap using him as inspiration. I confess to being mostly unfamiliar with Mr. Bradbury's work, but I needed something to get my creative juices flowing so decided why not. I knew that he wrote "The Martian Chronicles" and saw these little guys that looked like all the other Martian's that I know and decided to go with them (the stamps are made by Close To My Heart). As a bonus it gave me a chance to try, once again, to get the hang of shading with Copic markers, I know I still need more practice, but hang in with me and if I live long enough I may just catch on. I made the background paper from a list of Mr. Bradbury's work which I found on his website. I hope my online ladies see Martian's too or I may get some raised eyebrows with this one.
