2/9 Color Challenge - Ivory Bust
I've been wanting to scrap these photos - the event was so memorable. The colors from the 2/9 challenge worked very well, I thought. The Angie Briggs Sweet Words had the perfect colors. I did blend the solid purple with the yellow floral layer to darken them. Sorry to be late again.

December 2012. The Department of Environmental Conservation took part in a sting operation and confiscated a huge amount of ivory from an illegal dealer. After the trial, the ivory was put on display in our building. The heaps of ivory were breath-taking. Every person walking in the door said 'Oh, my God!". It was definitely a once in a life-time event. Apart from the huge number of elephants poached, I was distressed to see these gorgeous pieces of art, knowing that the artists were almost certainly getting subsistence wages for these masterpieces of carving.
