Lighten Up! (altered book spread)

My mixed media group has an ongoing altered book round robin, and this month I had the pleasure of working in Connie's book.  Here theme is "Poetry of Dreams," and there is a small envelope with "dreams" in the front of the book.  Each artist is instructed to choose a dream or two and use that as the jumping off point for her spread.  I chose two dream poems that remind me to not take myself too seriously and created this artwork to go with it.  I know that I take things too seriously too often, and I've enjoyed being a little "lighter" so far this year. What about you?

I'm defintely in a flippant mood today - actually sometimes I worry that other people take ME too seriously lol.

Quirky is such a lovely word - nice choice Heather, for such a cool couple of pages

I'm often guilty of being too serious, and my kids enjoy making fun of me. I think I've loosened up some as I've gotten older, but I'm reluctant to ask in case it's just an illusion. I love the "admit" ticket on this fun page.
