Saloon Doors for Liz

 Liz received the page so here are the saloon doors that I made for her. I have been trying to relate the pages to Montana (if the theme allows) and so that’s how I came up with this page. It’s based on the doors at Moose’s Saloon in Kalispell. I used muslin dyed with walnut ink and then embellished with machine stitching, oil paint sticks and Sharpie pen.

 You can open the doors for a little stamped message. The backs of the doors are silk paper.

And here’s the back. So does it say “Montana” to you?

  1. Ruth, the page is amazing, and thank you for giving us a description of technique. I have to agree – if John Wayne walked out of those doors I would not be surprised, perhaps with Robert Mitchum or Dean Martin in tow – remember El Dorado and Rio Bravo??????? I think this page would be a favourite for my husband!! Well done to you, such a great idea.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
