the unimaginable

This creation is a bit of a departure from my comfort zone
but wow! did I have fun playing and making it
It was inspired by a challenge on the More than Words blog
to make something with the word "imagine" and 
you had to get messy
WELL .....
I had all kinds of ideas in my head but nothing really jelled
until earlier this week
when I read this incredible quote by Mary Oliver,
"keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable."
But still I wasn't sure how to make this visual
then yesterday it came to me
and I created this heart full of art supplies
but with some room for the unimaginable.
The background is an old book cover that I gessoed
and painted and scraped and scribbled on 
then I added an old paint brush
and other things that just appealed to me
I stamped the quote and sort of 
played with the visual aspect of the quotation -
i.e. like texting.
Come back tomorrow and see the "art"
tag that I created for the More than Words mini challenge.
