Altered Page

Lots of fun with this. I was challenged to leave all the original text and illustration showing because it is so cool. And one of ArtsyMama's suggestions was to try a "layer of glaze". Sometimes you never know what will spark inspiration. With this page, just at some exact moment, I looked at the little hexagonal tiles at the bottom of the page and it made me think of a puzzle. Don't ask me why. My brain just bounces that way sometimes. Going with it one step at a time, after tracing around puzzle pieces and adding the glaze, I found myself digging for little black and white pictures that would fit. My little "dream" says:

I dream for you all the puzzles that life brings.

I dream you can dream.

I dream you will dream.

That's just to say that I think solutions in life come from dreaming.


  1. wow! I love the way you incorporated the original page into your design, those illustrations are to cute to cover up!
