Dwelling on dreams?

I took a picture of my work desk for the woyww-desk hop, and found an accidental sillhouette among the stuff on my table. She most obviously needed to be stuck into my art journal! I'm posting for Kim Dellows "show your face" linkup (I'm not following the "in style of" theme, just sharing what I turned up with :), the Craft Barn weekly challenge (fireworks and stars) and the Unrulypaperarts Readers Art Quest ("the written word").

As said, the figure is actually a happy accident. I've cut out a tree from that spot a couple of months ago, and stuffed the paper back in my drawer for underpapers. The paper with the sillhouette ended on my desk for some collage work, and stuck my eye after taking a picture of the desk (see here!)

It happened to have some gloss gel stars on it, which inspired me to cut out stars for the spread. I also had some scraps of the dark brown left, which I used to cut out an eye and mouth. I glued an orange underpaper with lovely autumn shades onto my spread, tore the sheet with the silhouette into several large pieces and adhered them on top. Loads of stars, mostly from old book paper, and this spread is done. The lovely sentiment from professor Dumbledore seemed a perfect match!
