"Doors" – "Enchanted Elevator"


This week’s Three Muses challenge was “Doors.” I decided to create an “Enchanted Elevator.” Instead of opening inside of the wall, the doors open by sliding on the outside of it, to reveal a portal to a magical world. I started with a picture of an art deco elevator, that I’ve had saved on my computer for awhile. I split the doors in half along their seam, then created a frame for the elevator opening. I used a section of the original wall to create the tile that I used for my wall. I modified the original magical world picture, and added a frame to the mural picture.

FYI: I’ve been having problems when I try to post comments on other peoples’ google blogs where the page is set to: Comment Form Placement - Embedded below post. When the setting is Full page or Pop-up window, it works okay. I changed my own blog site to use Full page now.

This is innovative and oh so lovely, Anne. What a novel idea! I love the way you constructed the scene. Thanks for sharing your talent with us! I'm laughing at Mary's comment "it must be tomorrow somewhere"! Yep. It was Wednesday in Oz, and this was Marie's week to post the challenge!

Yours is amazing. You have put so much work into it and the result is just stunning - and so, so original!! I love your art deco elevator (we call elevators "lifts").
