Today's bit of 4th of July craftiness was inspired by this page from the book One Drawing A Day: A 6-Week Course Exploring Creativity with Illustration and Mixed Media. It features the art of Dominick Santise. The top art is an American flag out of people and hand prints. The bottom art includes thumb prints. So I made an American flag themed card with my finger print.
Try making some of your own art combining two other pieces—it's fun!
