Layered Frame Erin with gesso
After finding the "perfect text" I apologized to the book, tore out the page and 'dirtied' it up with brown ink, paint and stamps.
I adhered these to the page, added ribbon and drips of white gesso.
I used my best handwriting skills (which in my case means trying to at least be legible ) to write the tiny "she sells seashells by the seashore" message on white cardstock, and then cut it out and adhere it to the picture.
I mounted the finished project on a mixed media foam core board that I had earlier painted.
