Mixed Media Monday - Places

This week the very talented Fatma returns as guest host on Mixed Media Monday and she has chosen "places" as the theme. I pondered long and hard about what I'd like to do for this challenge - thinking of all the places I'd like to visit (and there are many, LOL) and all the places I've been and loved. Then it hit me - when it's all said and done, Dorothy was right - "there's no place like home". So that's what I decided to do. I cut a piece of matt board into the shape of a house and used lots of glazes, a scanned page from a Wizard of Oz book (I could never cut that up) - used a picture of Dorothy from the movie because Judy Garland WAS Dorothy, a chipboard number, and a rubber stamp star which I used with paint. That's about it. Thanks for another fun challenge Fatma!
