This month's theme is Magic as Mind Illusion. You have to use "KEY" as the compulsory element. You may interpret key in any way you like. There is no particular colour scheme, however, it will be wonderful to try to be close to the colours in moodboard.

Looking forward for your beautiful creations. XOXO

"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence"
I don't know the author of this quote but yeah these words really inspires me.. This month we have amazing compulsory element i.e. KEY and I have used this element as my focal of the project.. For the composition I have used MDF Scraps and I love the way this project turns out to be..
I hope you guys like it too❤❤ If this project inspires you to create, do share your creations with us by participating in our monthly challenge..

Perfection is an illusion.. reality is beautiful.. 
try to be real.. not perfect.. that's the key to feel content

Indubitably, magic is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgment and practice than in any other branch of physics.
                   - Aleister Crowley
I created a Magic box full of ilusiĆ³n

There is magic in words, and like all magic can be more or less credible, more or less real, but there is something that words and magic have in common, they are capable of opening doors to other worlds, to impossible destinations and places, wonderful, unreal, but at the end of the day, tied to this your reality through your eyes.

For this month's project I opted to go with the Compulsory element Key as my base. 
I took a base shaped as a key and created on it. Life can be a pretty illusion, we have to know where we need to go and find our ways. I used a lot of mixed media elements here. Hope you are inspired.

Illusion is a state of mind and we can feel it in our day to day life as well. I tried to create a magical illusion scene of night where my imagination took shape of an illusion. I used lots of beautiful moulds and metallic waxes.
Hope you are inspired.

Hi friends! I want to share my mystical work. I associate the theme of illusion with the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. Deception, mirage, strange creatures - all this is exactly Alice. It provides an endless source of inspiration for creativity.

Do you feel inspired!
