This spread is titled: Found. I don't use these colors as a rule- I am taking a wonderful painting class from Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen called Layer Love 2.0 I am learning a lot and experimenting with color so some extra paint from an assignment was used for this background. One technique was to use deli paper to lift extra paint off the canvas- so I then printed that onto this journal spread for the background.   This spread just evolved from that. 
I think it is easy to get lost- to sometimes lose your way on your journey- then when you need it the most someone comes along and shines the light.

Next Journal Spread.

It's been a while- I bound this journal for the Book of the Night class I took from Juliana Coles.   I have a whole signature left so I will work in it from time to time- this one is a spread using the last page of one signature and the first of another. It's called Love Me.  The background is done with a solvent (Citra-Solv) on National Geographic pages.
