The East Wind Aurora Siesta II

Today we have another new release from The East Wind, Aurora 'Siesta II'. I took a more celestial approach even though she is sleeping in vines. I found this quote, "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream" from Edgar Allan Poe, and it all came together for me.

I did the background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and used a white Molotow marker to dot in some stars. I used my Cameo to cut out some vines on white paper. I was going to color them, but then decided leaving them white added to the idea that she's floating in dreamland. I colored the image with Copics.

I'm entering this in the Faery Ink Out of this World Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
