My Round Robin page for Paula


This is my page for Paula in Astrid's Round Robin. I have been struggling with this, as the theme, imagine, is so vast, I didn't know where to start. I know Paula likes texture, so I covered the front with crackle paste, and then inked it in rusty browns. I then made a door, inked and stamped it. The hinges, lock, and key are made out of grunge board, and distressed to look old.
When the door is opened there is a window through which you can see trees and birds. There is acetate on the window, and the surround is inked to look old.
On the back of the door I have stamped " Secrets and mysteries of the past. Memories of generations hidden under lock and key. Unlock the past and uncover the treasures of memory, lost in the dust of history. There are also some stamped images of keys and clocks.
The word imagine is made from air dry clay.
