"Beautiful Dreamer"

"Beautiful Dreamer"
6 1/2" x 4 1/2" Collage
(Click on a butterfly to see the details!)

Although there's been precious little time spent in the studio lately, I managed to make time to finish this last piece of the year for a "Dreamers" swap. Given the same subject, it always amazes me to see each artist's interpretation of a theme.

May all of your dreams come true!

Terri, your piece is so beautiful! I adore the little heart in the front, it is the best! I hope all of our dreams are beautiful!

I'm always amazed at the many images you manage to incorporate into one piece. Your swap item has so many beautiful and intricate pieces to it. I was taken by the lovely hearts, butterflies, and swirls.

As a frequent swap host, I am often amazed at the variation on sees in each swap, even though the subject matter is the same. That's always the magic of it, in my opinion.

Terri, your card is exquisite. The colours and mood you achieve are just sensational. I'm so pleased that you found the time in amongst all the kerfuffle of Christmas and its aftermath.
Your blog is such a joy and your place in Blogland is legend! You are a very talented and special person.
