enter the mirror maze

In Prague we had great fun poking around in the mirror maze - it's a bit like a Hall of Selfie Opportunities!  It was one of those labyrinthine places that has the mirrors placed at cunning angles convincing you that you can step forward into a space only to find yourself smacking into a mirror that is tilted so that your reflection doesn't appear until it's too late.  As I said: lots of fun! 

I wanted the page to reflect the mirror aspect.  Partly because I just made a frankly obvious yet terrifically amusing pun by employing my sharp wit and razor intellect on the interplay between the words 'mirror' and 'reflect'.  But mainly because I wanted to try my hand at backwards writing.  Not 100% convinced by the result as it keeps making me look twice, as though it's backwards.  Which I suppose it is.

Never mind.  Things can never be too bad when you have an envelope to play with.  Huzzah!

I also wanted to incorporate the maze idea by using little arrows as embellishment.  I cut them out of a sheet of patterned paper and popped some of them up on foam.  BOOM! Dimension.
