Craft Barn Challenge Imagination and/or Logic

The first song that came to mind with this challenge was a song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory sang by Gene Wilder. The verse I have chosen is:

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish be

The lyrics are by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.

It says it all for us crafters doesn't it? Also it was an excuse to let my imagination run riot. I made the the background with acrylic paint, my bubble stamp and flower masks. Next the fun bit of making up the picture. I got out my stamp stash and picked a child stamp and the rest is their day dream. Flying like butterflies, off on a merry go round like Mary Poppins through loads of flowers. I added glasses because well.. because. I had to stazon ink for this as the paint and ink background sucked the colour out of usual ink and I wanted it vibrant. The butterflies, balloon, glasses and leaves where stamped on inked and stamped background papers from my stash and cut out to give a little depth.

This was a fun page to do.
