Altered Pages Challenge #11 Dreamy Nights

Hi Everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today it's time for a new monthly challenge theme at Altered Pages.

The theme Dreamy Nights is open to lots of interpretation, at the time of thinking about this challenge I had been having lots of dreams in my sleep, and I can always remember conversations with one of my friends who was always having vivid dreams in full color.  Her stories of her dreams always has us in stitches laughing as well as trying to interpret their meanings.  If anyone can decipher what red and blue chickens in clothes means I am sure she'd love to hear it.  So my canvas is entitled - Technicolor Dreams in my Head.



Anyway I came up with a little Canvas for this challenge, incorporating the following items from Altered Pages:- Glitz Large Gemstones, Music Ribbon, Scrabble Tile Collage, Vintage Artists Trading Cards Collage Sheet, Glitz Vintage Blue Papers and Foil.

The Acrylic Paint, Gesso and Stencils are from my own stash but you can get these also from Altered Pages.

The metal dragon fly and the butterfly were on my desk at the time so I incorporated these into it as their symbolism is often relevant to dreams.

Well I must go I have a teenager wanting to challenge me to a game of Ten Pin Bowling on the WII.

I hope you all enjoy your week.

I love your little canvas! Chickens represent worries (cowardice/fear) getting in the way of something you want to do. They also represent starting something new-as in laying an egg for a hen and greeting the new day at daw for a rooster.The important thing though is what YOU think the chickens mean.lol Dreams rock!
