A Pirate's Life

Another page done! This one is about pirates - way out of my comfort zone! The photo doesn't show the pages well as there is vellum over both. I was going for the misty, gray sky look. On the left page I typed the "Yo Ho, Yo Ho, It's a Pirate's Life for Me" song and laid it over a blue painted sea and a gray inked sky. The sand is paper that looks just like sand. The Black Pearl ship on the right was actually a picture of a model kit. The treasure chest, jewels, knife and hat are plastic embellishments and I added a broken gold chain to the "loot."
