Image transfer/mixed media

 Image transfer on old book page with gesso undercoat & cobalt blue acrylic around the edge of the pages.
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 this was my inspiration for this artwork.
 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.
