Going to Market

20161230_154536I was brought up in West Africa and can always remember being in awe of the mammies carrying such heavy loads on their heads.  They made it look so effortless with their erect posture and perfect balance. I used to try and emulate them by walking about the house balancing books on my head.

  1. Such very different effects from the various stamps used, love this set of cards and the colours definitely bring them to life xx

  2. So sorry I missed the African class. (Broke my wrist) The background techniques are all very impressive.
