Digital Collage - Locked


I have been traveling the last week and weekend. I thought I would look at places in the mountains and just sort of get out of town and away from all the September 11 footage.  It stirs up a lot of feelings, distrust, anger, sadness, hurt, things I do not want to feel. I lived them, I am healing, no need to revisit.
The mountains were beautiful.  Those first days of the leaves beginning their color change.  You could feel it in the air.  I took lots of pictures, made some new discoveries, and met some nice people. Experienced some new food.
This collage is made with one of my pictures I took of a closed up factory door. I shared it with you last week - Locked. I found this cabinet card in an antique shop and scanned it. The lovely script is from Viola. It was one of her freebies. The key is one of Tim Holtz's stamps. I made a brush out of it for my collage. Enjoy!

Ahhhh, so THAT's where you've been hiding! How very smart of you to decide not to stick around to relive the horror and tragedy of that day. And, yes, yes, YES! I LOVE to watch the trees turn, feel a cool breeze, smell a wood fire burning and cozy up in a nice fluffy sweater! Hugs, Terri xoxo

This is very cool! Love the layered script and door lock. I've got a photo of my grandfather that'd look great in something like this. I need to play more in Photoshop...
