The following designer pieces were used with a commercial license. The red tank border, the floor, and striped awning are from designer Lauren Bavin of Digital Scrapbook Place. The metal parts of the tank, the metal floor border, and the red wall are from designer Lorie Davison at Studio Lorie of Scrapbookgraphics.com. The sign, the sign letters and frame, the crates, and the hat badge are all from Holliewood Studios of Oscraps.com. Most pieces except for the lettering, which were added digitally, were reprinted, trimmed with scissors, hand colored and glued to the background.

Hi Marsha, The ArtOMat project is the coolest thing. You might want to think about making art for them. Very small, but it is the funniest stuff I have ever seen. There is one 2 hours away from me in Sacramento and when I have to go, I make a trip to see the new art in it and buy 4 (always) pieces. Best $20.00 I ever spend. I would love to be able to buy a piece of your art from it. Sharon
