You May Say I'm A Dreamer



for Arty Girlz, Creative Therapy, Crazy Amigos, and Inspire Me Thursday

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Several of you have asked if this is a photograph or a painting. It's a FUSION of both art forms. I took a magazine ad and painted it and then collaged it onto my journal page. I'm working on a tutorial of the whole process to share with you, but I've been severely hampered by some evil flesh-eating spyware which has attacked my computer!

Oh, now, you've gone and done it. You have to clue me in on this one. It looks painted, but the eyes look photographic. How'd U do dat? I LOVE THIS ... but I'm an Alberta groupie, for sure!

Alberta, I think I will have to send you my bills for correcting my jawline!! Every time I pop in to your website, my jaw drops to the floor!! You blow me away. This "fusion" is simply amazing. I didn't think you could top your beautiful Moonstruck poster but you have. This is a wonderful work of art. The hat is so cool. I am lost for words.
