DCM - Pockets


Oh this challenge has got me frazzled. I have lots of little pockets but none suited what I wanted to do. This picture is different irl as I have coloured the page with H2Oz shimmering mist in gold and it isn't captured on the scan. The tag in the pocket reads 'Where do you hide your dreams?' I love the serene image of the lady. Bakcground is made using gesso as a resist on a sponge, then distress inks added, some rub-ons and shimmering mist.

I feel cheated now, I expected something poor (carrie's words) and this is gorgeous, as all your work is. the image is perfect and dreamy, the background is fab and the pocket and tag are perfect.

I am in a huff now, I thought you made cack too, but clearly you don't!!! lol ;-)
