What happened to Dorothy?

After the Red Brick Road - did you ever wonder what happened to Dorothy when she grew up?

There are some interesting challenges going on now, they made me ask the question - and then answer it.
Let's see... I say when Dorothy grew up she got tired of Kansas and moved to Paris. She still likes red shoes though, but wears them the grown-up way, with high heels.

Out of Kansas
I am entering this into:
Wicked Wednesday: Not in Kansas anymore
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Sparkle and Shine
Crafty Individuals: Face value
The Mirror Crack1d: Canvas

I used canvas on the background. I once salvaged a strip of prepared canvas, no idea where I might have gotten it from but it has been traveling with me for ages. Now I finally found a place for it. I used ink on the background, and once it was dry (two days!!) I stamped it with a map of Paris. Then came the picture of the couple (CI) and a shoe (from a magazine) that I glued heavily with shiny glitzy rhinestones.

Both pictures click for larger. Thanks for looking!


  1. Fantastic ATC...I think you are right, after her grand adventure there is no way Dorothy stayed in Kansas :)

  2. Tosi upea.

    Varasin kesäkukkasen sinulle joten nyt taitaa olla molemmilla neljä varausta. Joko löhetän tulemaan?

  3. Love this make and the Dorothy story too! Great glitzy shoe and thanks for joining in the CI Challenge for July. Jean x
