Anna and Virginia


TMTA had a lovely theme this week: Women in art. I couldn't choose from two of my favourite women in literarure, so as a compromise, I made two atc's. Anna Akhmatova is a great Russian poet and Virginia Woolf is one of the most interesting modern novelists of England. I've always been very inspired by these women, their work, their personality, and also their tragic and melancholic lives.

The elegant profile pictures of these ladies are image transfers. I added some crayons and used metal leaf as their crowns, although the scanned images don't show the golden glow properly.
