    Art Journal: Rhyme or Reason

    "When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last,
    "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
    "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
    "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
    Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
    "It's the same thing," he said.
    ~A.A. Milne

    A loose art journal page designed around a photo transfer. I've been scanning a cadre of 35mm slides my dad found from the 50s-70s, making wonderful discoveries. The focus of this page is a photo of my mother and a girlfriend taken while they were at college. Such fancy dresses!

    To use the photo, I printed it on glossy photo paper and painted a thick coat of Golden gel medium and left it for 15 minutes. With the picture side down, I rubbed the back of the photograph with a spoon for a minute and peeled off the remains of the photo paper, leaving a reverse of the image from the 1950's. I picked vivid detailed patterns like those my mom loved. The quote is from Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, a childhood favorite.
