Glue Journal - Avocado

I found this lovely avocado in a magazine, but the caption was what inspired me: "Avocados are proof that nature loves us". So I was thinking about dear Mother Nature when I found pieces of green in my paper pile and this was the result. I guess there's more tearing than cutting, but it's definitely glued.
Linking to Artsyville's Glue It Tuesday.

Very fresh!
and I like that the paper is more torn than cut, give it a more earthy organic feel right in line with that delicious avocado. Those marketers, really know how to sell it, don't they.
