one of the committments that I haqve made to myself in the creation of all of my pages for this swap is to use what I have and to recycle and repurpose in creative ways. This will ush me to think ab out what I ahve , find what I have and make room for future hunts for more treasure!! the background of this page was a wonderul green and brown plaid wool that was given to me just before it was put in the trash. I made the doorusing heavy duty interfacing that I painted with acrylic paint and then did some stitching for the wood details. I added leather hinges and a door handle. Then i got out my needle felting supplies and added the surrounding forest.
The hinges were added because the door opens to reveal a fabric/paper collage of endless possibility.
The photo is a bit dark but if I had used a flash, there would have been glare on the collage piece. The phrase reads, "Every Exit Leads To A NEw Entrance".To finish the page I added some hand stitching wih french knots and lazy dazy stitch and beads.Here are a few more detail shots.
Here is a piccture of the back. I kept it pretty simple and stitched on apocket of my own ahnd dyes fabric to hold a tag with all of the info for the swap.
I am now working on Shabby Chic for Deb and waitnig for the next storm!!!
Happy Stitching to all!!!
