Anatomy Journal

This is my digital 4x6 postcard for SPA ( Skulls and Skellies). I made it to resemble an old , stained Anatomy class type journal page. The background is made from scanned artist papers and an overlayed antique skeleton image. I then scanned in my magnifying glass and played around with the image until it became "see-through" as if to magnify the bone section.
