Book of Dreams...Windows, Doors & Niches

Here are my pages for this weeks BOD assignment. I decided to do a window after looking at Lilli's BOD pages 21-24 where she made a small window that you looked through from both sides.

One of the coolest things about this whole fun project is the inspiration gained from looking at what everyone else is doing. It's like brainstorming via the worldwide net. My window is nothing like Lilli's but that's where the spark of inspiration that I latched onto came from.

I use all of my own images. The window is a photograph of a window that I did. ( I may share more of that some other day). I altered it so I could print on transparency. I printed mirror images so I could put the printed sides together to protect them.

I played all day today and most of last evening on these pages. And what fun I did have. It took a lot of planning for the pages to work the way I envisioned and as always I started before I really knew what the finished page would look like. I am very pleased with the pages. I spend way too much time creating each page but I enjoy every moment. Sure need to get out and work in my flower gardens but I will just enjoy the images of them used on this page. I wish my photographs were better with better color and no glare. Oh well.

I am really getting into layering now and that is just one of many things that I have learned with this art dream.

Another thing I have learned: I can make time for art.
