(If you also want to know the challenge theme over at TioT, please, scroll down to the previous post).
Doors are a very mighty symbol... no surprise then that doors come with many sayings. One of my favourites says:
For each door that closes there is a new one that opens.
I love the idea that we first have to close doors (or sometimes fate closes them for us) to be able to open new ones and step through - without carrying too much of the old stuff with us. And I like the thought that we never have to be afraid of having nothing to step forward to... fate always will provide us with new goals and challenges worth being met. There's always the chance to evolve by opening unknown doors.
I had this awesome stamp from DarkroomDoor which I used on a background cut from a paper scrap left over from a selfmade background.
and I also stumbled upon my (seldom used but) gorgeous Lynne Perella stamp showing a door opening and a mysterious man standing in it...
On this ATC I did some metal leafing with IndigoBlu guilding flakes and I applied the glue (and some thin layers of white Gesso in other places) using a stencil, thus creating a couple of dotted layers.
I hope you like it and will hop over to our challenge blog to see what my DT mates have created for your inspiration!
See you at the challenge!
