BOD Week2 Page 3 and Page 4(part 1 & 2 )

Page 3: "Imagine and Dream" This page was created at 12am this morning, in free style form. I had a small pile of bits and pieces on my desk and just added them randomly to the page. Good way to get good use out of pile of small images you have shoved to the side. I colored the page using crayons, colored pencils and oil pastels. Did this without a care in the world, letting the colors go where they wanted to go. I am happy with this one. It made me feel happy and carefree to do this page. :)

BOD page 4 (part 1&2) "Dreams of a Secret Garden"
I have always wanted a secret garden to escape to when things
get crazy. The gate door opens to reveal the garden. I found
the gate door in a magazine for a Target ad. On the gate door it
reads, "When one door closes another one opens".

BOD Part 2 of page 4 with gate open to reveal garden. I am starting to feel better about the process of this book. 12 more pages to go lol. Got to get busy. I have some collage sheets available at: on my "Collage Sheets" page.

Happy Creating!

Hi, I'm also in the BOD challenge, but I'm a complete beginner in this altered book thing. I was wondering if you used varnish or other fixitive spray on the oil pastels. Did you? :)

Hello be quite honest...I have no idea how to seal my pages...I am not sure whether to use a gel medium or decopage or what exactly lol...I am pretty much self taught..when I find out what I should use I will let you be the first to know!

Oh, these are AWESOME! I love that book/movie The Secret Garden! My mom has an old picture that she's going to give me of an open door (big grandfather clock next to it) with a path leading through a gate and to a garden. I love that picture because it reminds me of the secret garden. :) These are great!
