The mystery project!

Hi
On one of the groups I belong to we had a very nice challenge to do. Our group mom had 11 objects to send to 11 ladies who would willing to alter it... we did not know what the object was!!! I submitted my name ... Unfortunately my name was not picked in the first round... but then one of the lady could'nt do the project so I got lucky and my name was picked for the challenge. The mystery object was an accordian folder to be altered:
ORIGINAL ACCORDIAN FOLDER
We where entirely free to alter it the way we wanted... I thought this was my first opportunity to do a mix media project as I've been wanted to try for some time ... So I gather, gesso, newspaper, mulberry paper, Golden purnice paste, embossing powder, decoupage photos, grunge flourish, embelishment key, paint, stamps, inks, letters and made doors out of fimo paste and mold.... here is the result:
THE SECRET DOOR
I had a great time working on this art project, what I didn't know at first was that the 11 projects where to be voted on and the winner would receive a prize from our group mom Cheryl (she is a very generous lady)... The voting took place and we where 2 winners ... so we had an elimination vote... again it was close I came second... but to me I'm won the confidence to start doing projects I was a bit afraid of doing... I never thought I would be so happy with what I did.

Thank you to Cheryl for her generosity and thank you for giving me the opportunity to play outside of my box!!!!
