Collage on paper
Here's the finished collage - I decided to make the background dark to make the meerkats look a little more dramatic or at least stand out more. They turned into quite the characters - perhaps my next children's book should star a meerkat...
And while I'm on the topic of meerkats - I got an early Valentine's Day gift from Ben. He knows that meerkats are one of my favorite animals, so he donated money to the National Zoo to their meerkat exhibit. And by "adopting a species" for me, I received a couple of stuffed animal meerkats as well as a few other treats in the mail:
Anyway, I hope everyone has a lovely week. It's beginning to finally feel like winter around here.
