Doors and Faces
Sunday Postcard Art: Faces
Take a Word: Door.
I ended up (sort of) combining these two challenges: Sunday Postcard Art's theme of "Faces," and Take a Word's theme of "Door." Sometimes this just happens while I'm creating--the collage seems to want to go in a certain direction. I think I know what inspired the mood of this piece, though. I had just finished C.J. Sansom's medieval murder mystery Dissolution (excellent book), which took place in a creepy monastery.
The reason there are two versions of this piece shown here is that, as usual, while I was creating it, I forgot that Sunday Postcard Art requires a 4x6 size. Of course my design was much larger. So I cropped it, to form the smaller version you see above. I'm happy with both of them!
