There's a lot of collaged textured papers on these two pages:
*paper towels coated with metallic paints and acrylic medium that were rolled up with aluminum foil and left to dry, then flattened out (I think that's how I made them but they're from my stash...so not sure anymore);
*foreign writings with interesting characters such as Arabic and Chinese found in free newspapers;
*ripped-up pages from old personal journals (who would want to read that stuff?!);
*clippings from an astrology calendar.
The legible text on this page says, "A Lifelong Journey" which fits neatly with the title of the facing page...
(which began its life as a large ad for a man's watch on this magazine page).
Both pages were subsequently attacked with acrylic paint, Caran D'Ache crayons, a bit of stamping and embossing and printing with paint on bubble wrap . Heavy coatings of matte acrylic medium allow me to get rough with the work, rubbing it off with a damp cloth when really dissatisfied, incising the wet paint with a wooden skewer to make my own "hieroglyphs."
Things happen in this book when I least expect them to.
A little like that famous John Lennon quote,
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
I hope good things are happening with and for you, planned or not!
