Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything.

I saw a video by France Papillon, whom I really admire, and it inspired me to make this spread. I started out applying texture paste in the middle of the spread and using one of those rubber tools to scrape texture in it. Then I applied turqoise acrylic paint, sprayed it with water and let it run down the page both up and down. After drying I applied a turqoise spray ink by Avec and did the same. I then used Distress inks to colour the background, Antique Linen, Vintage photo and Walnut stain. On the edge I used a little Black Soot.
The circles were made with Finnabair Platinum Crackle paste. I also spattered some India Ink on the spread.
I sprayed some fabric and Gips fabric with the Avec spray and Gossamer Gold by LSG and added them in the middle of the spread. I also added some rusted metal pieces.

I typed the quote on my trusted old typewriter and I added some Walnut Stain on the edges. Love this quote.
I hope you enjoyed my spread. Have a great week, hugs Frea
