I made a collage for the header above using several of the new stamps I carved. The big doodle stamp on the far right above was inspired by the doodle journal page that I am posting this time. I also finished another quilt block this week. I recounted and I have 18 finished blocks…yay, for me!
This week, we went to see the movie “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”. I just finished reading the book a day or two before we saw the film. It is a very moving story about what happened to one family after losing someone on 9/11 It’s very different from any book I’ve ever read because of the quirky photos and the type font that changes at the end of the book. I finally figured out why I think the author (Johathan Safran Foer) did that after seeing the movie and looking at those pages in the book again. We saw “Everything is Illuminated” on Netflix a while back. It is another book, made into a movie, by the same author. I also recommend that movie if you like quirky and different films. 🙂
I started the page above with torn pages from a phone book page. I had cleaned my brush on the page….that’s why you see spots of color on the page. I fully intended to gesso over it and do something else but changed my mind. In the photos below you see the entire collage of the piece I made for the header….I could only use a small portion of it.
