It looks like you've been having a lot of fun Diane. I especially love the last two.
I am so impressed and inspired by your work that I keep checking on new pages. jUst love the new style you are using. Maggie T. is awesome and she has inspired me too. What a great island you designed too. Love the tentacles coming out on its side like roots. Fabulous idea.
Am constantly inspired by your work Diane...it really lifts the spirit. Magic portals are so ingrained in our psyche, as in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magic Faraway Tree, The Secret Garden etc. Specially love the tree image.
