Theatre and Cinema

Hello everyone, Great tags so far!!
My tag this week pays homage to the Wizard of Oz. I have always loved that movie and never tire of watching it. I love Dorothy's red shoes and even own my own pair of sparkly red shoes so I can click my heels and go wherever I imagine and find my way home. Home is very important to me and I have to admit to being a homebody. I use so many lines from the movie in my conversations and I have a small collection of The wizard of Oz memorabilia. I wanted to portray Dorothy in both worlds as she slowly leaves one for another.  I have the colour bottom part of her (adding sparkle to her shoes) and the sepia top. I used red resin raindrops to show the colour leaving as she wakes up and comes "home". I added layers of vintage lace to create a division between the two and added the word home to it as I felt it would portray the longing in her eyes.
Hugs,
Ivy

  17. Hi Ivy, This tag is really emotive because it conjures up so many lovely memories of "Over the Rainbow", red sparkly shoes and Judy Garland - and so beautifully and cleverly done.
