It was not a particularly sad day when I created this page, but it seemed to evolve in to sad page. Subliminal, perhaps?
I started with a neutral background, adding some text collage pieces.
The bold red heart came next. I was going for contrast against the background.
To continue with the contrasting theme, I added bright blue paint drips from the top of the page.
When the paint ran over the heart, it became rain.
I finished off the page with some stenciling with texture paste and black spatters.
The rainy heart seemed to call for the text "stiches."
The chevron stamp was one I hand carved.
