PASSION

I got this lettering from an advert in the colour supplements - some kind of spirit is being advertised but it was the lovely white letters on the red background I noticed and cut out!! There are several versions of the ad and the wording is different on each, so eventually I laid everything out on the desk and started to see what I could make out of it. This is the result!

I painted my page black and then set to work, like someone composing a ransom note out of the newspaper! I'm amazed at what came out of this exercise - but then again I shouldn't be really, its clear that something here was meant to be ...

Wow! How lucky to find just the right words to make such a cool page....the red and white over the black is quite elegant!

Love this - I especially had to smile at what you wrote in white. You hit the nail on the head there!

Perfect Rosie! I bet you had mucho fun sorting the words once you'd cut them out...kinda like a jigsaw!
I've just done a similar exercise at AFTH journaling for regulars (although we made some gobbledy gook sentences!) It's great for focussing the mind.
