A Polka Dot for Megan

This is Megan's eight inch polka dot for an exchange I am in. She is making a book out of these large eight inch circles. It is going to be wonderful. Her theme is polka dots. Honestly something I am not that familiar with. As a mother to five boys polka dots was definitely not something we really came across ever. Now snakes and critters, basketballs, footballs, lacrosse balls, that is another story. So for me this was definitely a challenge. I loved being able to use glitter on the wings and as part of the background. A girl can never have too much glitter. My scanner can not capture the dimension of the piece, but the zetti Teesha Moore girls are actually raised up. Wouldn't it be cool to have a bunch of these polka dots hanging from the ceiling in your studio? So here you go Megan, I hope you enjoy.
p.s. The giant sequins were from some of my grandmother's stash.

Hi Elizabeth!
This circle book is AWESOME! AND I LOVE the way you made your own chipboard letters! The recipient of this exchange is going to FLIP over this!

How cool is her book idea? Love it. 8 inch circles will make a great book. The cd-size ones are cute, but sometimes too small. Your piece will make a great addition. Love the big sequins, too.
