Sunday Postcard Art - Once Upon a Time

It is such an honour to be host for challenge blogs. This week on Sunday Postcard Art I decided to choose the theme "Once Upon a Time". Stories and reading have been interwoven into my life since the day I was born. I was read to as a small child and found my wings when I learned to read myself. Books were and still are my sanctuary, a place to escape into whenever I wish and to discover new ways of being and thinking and information about what is now, what came before and what will come. I just finished a book last night and felt genuine sadness when I came to the last page. Do you ever feel that way? The book was "Broken for You" by Stephanie Kallos.

This is precious, and yes I often feel sad when I finish a novel.
I have been slack on blog visits and I sure have missed seeing all your wonderful creative work Heather, hope to be back soon.

I read that book, Heather. A very dear friend of mine selectedit for a gift for me, thinking I would like it. She was so right. Books and stories have always been so special to me because I too was read to as a child, and my grandfather told the best bedtime stories! Your darling postcard brings all that back to me.
Thank you!

Love,
Alberta

Your postcard is so sweet. I'm also a book lover - and I probably purchase too many books.

Beautiful interpretation as always Heather. I adore your imagery. It can be whimsical, moving, emotional... always creatively empowering!

What always impresses me about your collages Heather is the depth you create in them. This one is another example of that! Nice work and I love your beeswax collages. Do you use a heat gun to spread the wax around?
