I was inspired by Donna Downey when I made this spread. I first collaged the page with some black and white images and bits from a phone book page. After the collage was dry I spread patching plaster roughly over the page making sure that some of the collage still showed through. When that was completely dry I sealed it in with gel medium and let that dry. Next I made a glaze from glazing medium and a blue paint and covered the surface leaving in on for about a minute. I used baby wipes to wipe it off so that it was just stuck in all the cracks and crevices. I let that layer dry and then I painted on my roads and glued on the tag that I had written some of the Robert Frost poem and let it dry. I filled in around the road and tag using a couple of different colors of green chalk pastels. I rubbed them in and blended with my fingers. After everything was dry and looked the way that I wanted it to look I fixed the pastels with a fixative and let it dry. I added my own words at the end. I hope that you enjoy this journal page and the poem.
Have a great week,

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
Check out my husband's website. He is a writer and has written about our life and many other amusing stories.
