My Favorite Childhood Book

Dr. Seuss books were my favorite books to read when I was a kid, I had tons of them and I would read them over and over again. When I had my kids, my husband and I used to read them the books all the time. They are just fun books to read. I had to do a page based on my favorite Dr. Seuss book - Green Eggs and Ham. I bought the book at the thrift store for 1.00 so that I could tear it up and use it on my page so don't think i used my original copy. haha!! 
I used a technique that my art journal teacher Karen showed me about gluing a page to the journal and then clear embossing stamped images on top of it and then painting. The embossing acts as a resist, it gives it a really cool effect.
