Elemental Grid

"Rushing into action, you fail. Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project into completion, you ruin what was almost ripe."
~ Lao-tse

Alterations in progress. I painted the pages in this hardback with white gesso to strengthen the paper and block the text. To give the thick border a rough, aged look, I painted a bit of Golden fiber paste under vivid Golden fluid acrylics. Since the fiber paste makes the base rough, it's not a good surface for collaging with paper. I glued images with Mod Podge. The images are of patterns, fabric, textures, man-made and natural elements. After making turquoise gridded lines with a gift card, I edged the images with neocolor II crayons.
