3 New Goth Girls
I decided to try something a little different with these girls. I have this huge book called "The Grammar of Ornament - The Classic Encyclopedia of Design and Decorative Art" Its a reprint of a book that was first published in 1856.
Inside it is a like a Sears catalogue of little design motifs. Indian, Chinese, Greek... you name it. Bits and pieces of little lines of scrollery and swirls. A lovely big tome.
Anyways, I decided to jazz up the backgrounds with some inspiration from the pages of this book. Very challenging.
By special request, I have listed these on etsy first instead of ebay. We will see how they do over there.... hmm. Two are already gone! Wow!
Edited to add: okay, now they are all gone. LOL.
