Altered Book: Fake Writing


 Working on pages in an altered book that I started last year. This was a page I considered complete, but I guess I just didn't love it. The background (bottom photograph) is magenta golden fluid acrylics, gesso, stenciled paint. I covered the words with maps and added images, cardstock, maps, hand-painted paper, a list of books to read, etc. I doodled, stamped with rubber stamps & handmade eraser stamps. The writing is in brush nib PITT pen.

I wrote thoughts about why I don't write as much as I would like. I certainly make time for art and other things that must get done... but I don't make time to write. I've been reading books about writing, such as "Bird by Bird" and "The Right to Write" and obviously I'm not making it any sort of priority. It just seems like a vague thing that I want to do. I think the key is that I need to get organized and figure out what on earth I want to write about and approach in small pieces, as a GTD project.
