A Beautiful Mess

I have no idea where this page came from…I got lost in it. I’m truly getting better at letting go. I did start out with a plan of sorts. But it got away from me in a good, messy, chaotic way. The process reminds me of a quote I just read from  musician Matthew Ryan: “The more that I plan an album, the further it drifts from my control. My work is defiant that way.”

To make this I played with book pages, painters tape, modge podge, acrylics, spray inks, uniball pen, and metallic gelly roll pen.

The words on the page are from a book page I was working with. I cut out words and phrases, selected a few I liked, and then arranged them to form a poem of sorts. I was going to just glue them to the page, but decided to write them instead:

“We sat under the stars close

You put something in my hand

My skin prickled

a feather

the Belt of Orion

joy”

  1. What a fun page! I love all the bright colors over the black background, and the gold hexagons are awesome 🙂

    1. Thanks Kitty! Those hexagons were a last minute addition. They were made with metallic Sakura Gelly Roll pens. I am sort of obsessed with them 🙂

  2. I love me some hexagons! Great page & you can really tell you had fun with it.

    1. Oh, yes! I was just looking at your quilt the other day 🙂 Hexagons are my new favorite shape!
