Art Journal

I knew that I wanted to have some sort of scales for the theme of balance. I received some mail today and the sender's address label had a girl, similar to this one, holdong scales. I found inspiration from that tiny picture. Then, I couldn't think of what to put on the scales and all of a sudden, "work" & "play" came to me. I think all elements come together just right.
