Z is for Zymurgy

I'm fortunate to have some librarians as friends, one who gave me the word, "zymurgy."  My tag says it all, so I will keep you in suspense for the definition.  Here's a hint:  I used my current favorite substrate--beer cartons:

I knew I wanted to use the woman from the DoubleTake carton, so I cut her out.  I also chose a few elements from the White Hawk carton. It took a few days to determine how to arrange the elements and what kind of background looked best. Once I decided on a chalkboard, I sprayed a scrap of cardboard with chalkboard paint and free-handed the definition and ornament with a chalk pen.  It took many tries. Here's the result:

Did it cause you to do a Double Take?  :-)
