Imagine - Believe - Discover - Mixed Media

Hi Everyone! I was in daydreaming mood when creating this piece. Don't know why I felt inspired by these words. My thought is that one has to begin the making of a dream by imagining, then believe that what you imagine is possible, so that you can ultimately discover for yourself what your mind created. It's possible that one might discover other things on your way to one dream. I like it when this happens to me, it just means that the universe is communicating telling you something. Okay, Okay I'll stop getting too philosophical about this piece and explain how I made it. I used a cardboard box as the canvas. I used K and Company scrapbooking paper. The words were stamped on cardstock paper. I also stamped some images as part of the background. These stamps include the key, the vintage calendar and letter postmarks. The flowers are from Recollection, and added some pearls as the center. The bows are made from hemp string. The layers underneath the words consist of corrugated cardboard, burlap, gauze, drywall tape and lace. The butterflies were cut from the K and Company scrapbooking paper using a Martha Stewart butterfly puncher. The clocks were printed from the internet on cardstock paper and used Mod Podge Dimensional magic to give it a glossy look.
