Yesterday I got a newsletter from Kathryn Antyr, the Collage Diva, about inspiration that she had received from Jamie Ridler's Wishcasting Wednesday. Jamie asked the question "What do you wish to invite in?" This led Kathryn to choose 12 pictures of doors that she had photographed and craft them into an advent calendar! Behind each door is ... what she would like to invite in to her life!

I love this idea, love doors, love advent calendars....except, for me, the question became "What would you like to open the door to?" And that reminded me of the famous Joseph Campbell quote, above. I am going to think about this and then make some Small Art!

You can purchase Kathryn's door pictures or have a look at the doors on Flickr or .... and I really like this one .... go out and take your own pictures of doors to use in your art! I have quite a few already. Doors are so interesting!

What are YOU going to open the door to in the new year?

  1. I'm a big fan of Joseph Campbell's work and this quote is splendidly perfect. I like your question which is a great variation -- both really do connect. I guess it is a matter of bringing in versus going out into; both a thought provoking. I look forward to seeing your photos of doors and mini art. Thanks for sharing my project with your readers. Have a lovely Advent season! {soul hugs} Kathryn, Collage Diva
