poster

the theme for Take a Word is Poster . Or design a poster about crime
I don't know if this was what was meant  but I surely had fun making it.
The photo is one I took when visiting the York Castle Prison,( now part of a museum)  this is where Dick Turpin was kept.


The policeman is from Rian Freubel (she's got a sale on now - don't miss out !) and I've used several kits from Maya de Groot

Ellen, you may not have known where to go at first but you certainly managed to create a fantastic, original poster. I LOVE IT!! I love everything about it and the quote is the icing on the cake (so true!).
FABULOUS artwork and lateral thinking.
