computer generated verse
Start with gesso coated pages. Tear fabric into strips about 1” wide and then cut the strips into pieces slightly longer than the width of your page. You need enough strips to cover your pages. I used an old fabric that was too thin for quilting.
Brush matte Mod Podge on page, lay a strip of fabric down and then brush another coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. Repeat laying strips of fabric down without overlapping edges until page is covered with fabric. Do not flatten the edges, as this will give you a great deal of fun texture. Let dry.
Brush a generous layer of gesso over the fabric and let dry.
Spritz with several colors of ink sprays. Mist with water and blot with a paper towel. This will give a mottled look. Let dry.
As I started to arrange the flowers, I realized that they looked like hollyhocks, so I decided to go with that. I drew a stem with copic markers and attached the flowers with a double layer of dimensional tape.
The verse is computer generated.
