Clean Sweep

I have three pieces of paper from this company, and this is the first that I've done of BROOM LABELS! This billhead is quite appealing and an excellent example of the engraver's art in this country. If you look closely at the left edge of my art work there's a lighter colored area that specifically lists Number 6 Brooms. That's what is nice about using colored pencils on this old paper because I don't want to lose the significance of what was purchased by covering up the characters.

  1. The colors and style are so elegant, one would think the product was something far more fancy than a broom! The Wilton brand these days is known for cake decorating supplies, befitting the elegant swirls. Is that colored pencil? The colors are so vivid and the blue almost translucent; very nicely executed.
