The words that shine through create such a powerful feel! I really love how you create these pieces. They have such a lingering grace to them. And the words, as always, tell such a deep story and have a wonderful influence over the piece. Gorgeous, as always. ^_^ :heart:

Thank you so much! I am enjoying this altered art project. The challenge of seeking out words of significance and making a work of art out of the page pleases me as well.

Somewhat ominous ... but not scary at all ... if that makes sense. Makes me wonder what lies inside ...

I think so. Iconic or portentous.
Thank you!

I like how this can be interpreted in many different ways. I know thats with all art but for some reason this one feels really open.

I have been attempting to make some work that could be more open for interpretation. I like to hear and read the different ways people interpret the image.
Thank you!

This is from an altered book/art project on which I am working. The book is called "The Living Lotus" by Ethel Mannin. It was being thrown away and I thought I would use it. I have been reading some of the story as I alter the pages in it. I have not been able to get into the story, no offense to Ms. Mannin.
