Doors!

That’s this week’s challenge at The Three Muses blog… and it really got me thinking. I am working all day on Saturday in my capacity as a volunteer for the Holsworthy Scrapstore, for our Midsummer Night’s Day event. I have made my fairy skirt (!), my badge so people know I’m a helper, and not a middle-aged hippie wannabe (*grins*) and I told the girls I’d make a tiara too! I promise to post pics – yes, really!!

Anyway, I thought about making a fairy door, but I have no idea where my lolly sticks are, so then I remembered my Go Ask Alice Collage Sheets from Ten Two Studios – and all the trouble started when she opened that door, didn’t it? Well, as my paint pot still had brushes and water in it from this morning, I found the image, the words and the right sized puzzle piece for the job! Here’s my lovingly layered red background and the girl herself – Alice!!

I did consider a light red wash over the entire piece, but it’s Alice that’s the focus, not my layers!! I think I’m obsessed with altering puzzle pieces, but the shapes really excite me – they’re so irregular and these large ones are quite odd. I have one that looks like a cartoon character’s profile ready to collage, but I’m still seeking the ‘right’ image!
