Mystery Awaits by Dorthe Hansen


Here comes Monday again, with a new creation from me
and this one also will belong in the journal I`m so happy to
create in. 

I used one of the white cardstock pieces from the paper bundle, to which
I adhered a few scratches from an old book, also along left side and layered tulle on top. 
Tulle was painted with Lavender and left side a little thinned Chestnut Brown.

Then using the stencil - Hole in the wall, I added paste
through it, on left side and top of paper, to create the walled garden. When
dry I sprayed with diluted Black and added drips to right side too. 

Onto white tissue, I then stamped a wildflower, twice - one
of them only using half the stamp but elongating the stem to make it
stand tall, I used Archival Ink.

Both were torn around and adhered to the tulle and one to the
old book scratch piece. Lavender was dabbed around the edges.
From Tim Holz Wallpaper package, I tore a piece and stamped 
one of Lynne`s Affirmations, tore it in two and drew around the
edge with black and red fine point pencils after adhering them
to the page, too. Lastly I smeared Lavender paint here and there, to give more 
texture around the wall. 
I was fun creating this Mystery garden and I hope you 
have enjoyed reading how I did.

Hugs and love, Dorthe
