Mix it Monthly - Crazy Dress

I had to do an altered book for my friend, Char in my altered book club and her theme is Seasons.
Lots of people have worked in her lovely altered book and most of the seasons had been done. So I looked at Pinterest for some design inspiration for Seasons. I saw in there that an art teacher had dressed the Mona Lisa for the Seasons in the classroom. Well that inspired me to dress some famous characters for the seasons and I thought that I might could combine it with Mix It Monthly's theme of crazy dress. So I chose American Gothic for my characters to dress. I painted over them with gesso and drew their outfits onto them. The Spring outfit is the crazy dress for Mix it Monthly. The flowers
were from Easter Seal stamps and I found the Summer drink in some of my Summer stuff. The Winter one has glitter snow on it. These were fun to do but were quite the challenge! I figured the original American Gothic would be perfect for Fall. What do you think?
