Just like Esmeralda I had a plan except that it all went horribly wrong! I cut out some lines of text from a trashy novel and waited to see what ideas hit me, fascinating to take words out of context and apply your own story. I painted a bit of old canvas paper, but never again!! I like texture very much but this was so difficult to get the paint to move around on and the overall effect is just too grainy for me. Still, another card to go in the box, perhaps I 'll like it by the end of the year when I've had time to forget about the problems involved in making it.
