Diary Pages- January
I was playing with the idea of this book being a time capsule when I created this. The collaged page has several layers, starting with the entire alphabet stenciled on the blank page and then a selection of images collaged over top. The images/papers are random, chosen because I like them. Birds, seed heads, clay dolls, an apple, plastic, raffle tickets., a note from my son,even a groccery shopping reciept. Then I added paint and finally a layer of tracing paper (also known as baking paper, lunch wrap or waxed paper.) The idea of the paper was to trap the contents of the page underneath, sealing it like a time capsule. This day archived for ever. The calander page is for January...some days written in Maori, some English. As you can see I have made no effort to keep my writing uniform, it's haphazrd. That for me is part of the appeal of hand made things. I've got a couple of pockets to make and then January is done....starting next year as I mean to continue!
