small obsession

Starting a fresh page . . .
gesso added loosely, letting the paper stay exposed in some places . . .
where the gesso lays, excess paint is wiped away, while the exposed paper soaks in the color . . .
adding a layer of copper . . .
letting the red splatter and drip . . .
dribble in sepia tones and spray with water . . .
recent Instagram images added . . .
another smudged layer of something white . . .
coppered edges . . .
more smudging . . .
not quite complete . . .
Complete.
(The white rings were a sweet technique shared by Orly Avineri in 21 Secrets.)
Scars.
Hotei.

It astounds me that you post images of your journals. They're so very personal, so intimate.

Sort of like sitting at your side with a cuppa in hand, watching the process unfold.
