This piece resides in an altered book. To prepare the background, I dabbed various colors of Golden fluid acrylics through cotton needlework canvas with a damp sponge. Added random bits of scrap cardstock, a map, magazine and catalog clippings, forms, product packaging with Mod Podge and edged them with Caran D'Ache Neocolor II wax crayons. Stamped here and there, added black lines and yellow-green lines with fluid acrylics and a bit more ephemera. Stamped the quote and other words with alphabet stamps. The black lines provide space for future journaling as the altered book evolves.
I like the ordered chaos, the idea of enjoying life as it is right now without always looking for something new, something else to make you happier. You have today. Do something you enjoy, or enjoy something you do! Check out pages from another altered book at orange.blue.
