Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

in between washing the floors...

and cooking dinner, I have been playing today making my page for a Round Robin Journal Challenge organised by
Dirtsa we each have to choose a theme for our own 'front page' I have chosen 'Instructions 4 Life' The page is then circulated around 11 other players and they will each make me a page.. it's their choice how they interpret my theme.
I am really excited by this challenge, it's going to be fun making pages for everybody.
I was keen to use several different media's on my page but ran out of space!
The page is mountboard, I was wondering if this was allowed, but Sian used it for the same reasons as me, so that must OK LOL. It was painted/inked/sandpapered within an inch of it's life, so just as well it wasn't just card!
The word 'Instructions' is made up of newspaper cuttings, 4 and LIFE are chipboard, but all treated differently........ then a bit of stamping, embossing, handwriting and grungeboard wings....
I'm pleased with it............. the back is painted and stamped as well, and I'm hoping my RR friends will pop a bit of advice graffiti style on the back for me...
