Moleskine-18 – Zigzag Together When Dancing

Greetings…If I could do this one again, I’d leave off the white swirls.  I started by gluing some old dictionary pages down, followed with a layer of white acrylic paint. I cut the collage flowers and stems  from painted phone book pages…used black India ink to outline and write…used Caran d’Ache crayons to add some more color.  I found some phrases in the dictionary collage pieces and joined the boxes together.  It reminded me of  “found poetry.”  If you want to see some  examples…put “found poetry” in the search box at the very top.
