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.


  1. must have missed this one....lovely...nice to know that you get surprises as you go too...worked out well...I suppose it's the creative part of you that senses what's needed as you go...clever
