As Julia has mentioned earlier, she loves the interplay between one shape and another and infact laying a transparent layer can therby  develop this way of thinking further, yet still maintaining a connection to the original object itself. Sometimes studying one object, say a dried sunflower leaf as seen  in  'Leafscape', she has created a large piece of work where it has been almost transformed into a landscape. We all have our world which we can escape to - the imaginative world, the dreamworld.
