Journal page swap

This is side 1 of a Frida Kahlo journal page swap in my art group.
The main image is from a google search totally altered. The background was done with painted deli paper. The central strip of paper was a gift from my friend Wanda. You can see her amazing work here

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
