This weeks challenge was to use a favorite quote . I am using this quote as inspiration .
" NO MATTER HOW LITTLE MONEY AND HOW FEW POSSESSIONS YOU OWN, HAVING A DOG MAKES YOU RICH " by Louis Sabin .
I really couldn't think offhand of a favorite quote but when I saw this e on the back of a book I was looking at while I was also toying with a photograph I had just altered with a boy and a dog I thought VIOLA !
I took an old battered book , gessoed , painted and distressed it . I added torn pages from a 1920 magazine with advertisements for dog kennels . Pages from a childs storybook about a lost dog , an altered old photo were added . I copied the large image of the dog from another dog book and cutout . Vintage game pieces I painted became " balls " . Standing on top is a porcelain doggy perched on a dominoe .
Photographed on a shelf with my 2 FAVORITE dog planters .
