Behind the Garden Wall

The inspiration for this piece is the image of the woman.  I just love the colors and style of her dress and her lovely face.  I’ve had her sitting around my studio for a while as I decided what to do with her.  The paper in the far background is from Land of Nod Studios.  Deborah offered it up on one of her “Free Photo Fridays”.  Next I added an image of an old frame and a piece of architectural detail at the bottom.  The metal gate is a wire piece I purchased at Michaels craft store several years ago.  It’s one of the many things I’ve bought that I didn’t know how I would use, but knew it would be perfect for something someday.  The gold at the bottom is a piece of lace.  Lastly there are brass birds and bees, beading, paper flowers, fabric flowers, brass flowers, and images of vintage jewelry.  The overall size of the piece is 3” x 6”.

How wonderful. That title took me back about 55yrs when my aunty and uncle lived next door but one to a UK comedian who used to do an act called 'over the garden wall'. He wasn't as good looking dressed as a lady as yours though LOL!
