An insight into my method, or how this page came to be:
Opening the book to a new page, I began searching the text for anything that might jump out at me as inspiration. Immediately 'red' and 'chair' caught my eye, because just a few days ago I had clipped a nifty red chair. (I heart chairs) Continuing on down the page, I collected a few more words to tell a story. Next I painted the page, working around the text I wanted to save, then added some background texture. I knew I wanted to use the transfer of the woman propped on her books. The other elements gave me fits until I finally found the right combination and configuration. Some flourishes and a little pen and pencil work finished it up.
What story does this page tell to you?
