When that door of your imagination shows itself...take it! Open the door and see all the possiblities! They are there for your taking! For me when that door is staring me right in the face I open that door right away....sometimes if I wait too disappears....Open the door...go for it!!!
Materials used: Vintage book cover, vintage paper, tissue dress pattern, paper collage imagery, rubberstamps, ink, stencils, various pens, vintage cigar labels, rub ons, oil pastels and gesso. Layers of journaling!!!!
