Home & Garden Altered Book

I have several altered books I'm working on at the moment...one on Females, my Red, White & Blue, the Word Journal and this one....Home & Garden.  So I painted this little stone house and cut a door out and added a piece of screen to make the screen door.  I painted a picture of my dog, Boomer, and he is the greeter at the door.  I added a bead for the doorknob and a lantern at the peak of the house from the Pottery Barn catalog.  The most fun was making a real, screen door.

I like the way you can peek through the door to the interior!

That was the most fun part of doing that page....and it took me awhile to decide what would be on the other side of the door...Boomer was perfect. Thanks!
