"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. You have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." *Harriet Truman
Before assembling this Large Divine Antiquity Shrine from Retro Cafe Art Gallery, I arranged the the pieces and images that I intended to use on my work space. I wanted the top of the shrine to be the inspiration point so I tried many different images and embellishments until I found this Ornate Vintage Lace Keyhole Heart. It was just the inspiration I needed. When I added the word Dreamer, I knew just where I was going with this shrine.
I painted a doll house window frame that I found in my stash and glued the Moon and another piece of paper where I wrote the words, "Dreamers Come In" behind the frame. The rounded words
on the bottom say, "When the Moon Plays Hide and Seek." I added the word "Blessings" above the frame.
I have been in a bit of a John Lennon mood this month so I added
the words on the back by John that says: "They say I am a Dreamer,
but I'm not the only one."
I cut my paper and glued them to the individual pieces before gluing all the pieces together.
Once I finished the front and let everything dry, I turned all the pieces over and repeated the paper and paint to the backside adding
words with a White Signo Gel Pen to black washi tape.
