A Moon On Creative Tuesday

 Mr Toast's Creative Tuesday Theme this week is Moon. So for it I experiemented with printed words on paper and then a drawing on top. I did not get the effect that I wanted I think because I used mainly water colour pencils and then colour pencils,- it might work better with acrylics but I am to lazy at the moment to dig them out :)
The history of the ACEO is that this is one of the dress rehersals for the real Hey Diddle Diddle and the cow did not make it over the moon. She blamed it on the moon not being full and hence her judgement, persepective, angle and speed were off.
Hope you all have a great Tuesday and pop by Mr Toast's to see what the other artist have done this Creative Tuesday. 
Cheers :)

What a clever idea - and that cow is darling....what an expression! I think it's successful with the words behind; I noticed them right away and like the extra layer of interest.
