I found this image a long time ago in a National Geographic magazine.
When I paint I brush excess paint onto old book pages etc. As I did this I noticed the words " this is what she wrote" at the top of the right hand page....this page just so happened to be the one I had chosen for this image transfer........so this was my inspiration for this artwork.
Drawing over a dry watery coat of burnt sienna with pen, added some colour to the drawing with watercolour pencils.
Collaged a paper border with printed handwriting on it onto the canvas board.
Then added the book page with gel medium. When it was dry I added the corner collage pieces.
Last of all crayon which I smudged with my fingers to soften the overall appearance of this picture.
