I Want to Play
Here's an artist's paper that was also done, following directions from Somerset Studio. Well, I sort of followed the directions. I like the layers. When it was done, I felt it needed a little text as a focal point, so I browsed through some of my books, waiting to be used as text or as altered books. A "Dick and Jane" book caught my eye, and I opened to this story, where one of the children is saying "I want to play with Sally." Playing is exactly what I was doing with this piece, so I snipped out that section, added some midnight blue to the edges, and glued it down.
I think I will be making more of these kinds of papers. There is definitely drying time required (with no heat gun allowed), so they're a good project to work on, then go to some other project (like CHARMS--my new-found addiction!) while you're waiting for the paint or glaze to dry.
