Why would she? She stood, fascinated by her reflection in the full length mirror, the sun streaming through the window… etc.!
Isn’t it funny how you tear a random sheet of text from a little book you’ve never read; you stick it to a long narrow strip of card along with random strips of sheet music and some french text aswell; you apply a coat of gesso and then some orange paint and gold mica powder mixed into it.
You take some punchinella (sequin waste), and sponge silver paint through it randomly. You love turquoise and orange as a colour combo, so you randomly sponge turquoise ink on too. You choose a small image for your ATC and a couple more scraps of uninked, plain sheet music; you turn over the long strip of card and mark off the width of your ATCs (5 + a slimmer piece left over). You cut them up randomly and then, as you place your collage elements onto your randomly assembled background, you find that line that suggests the entire tone and theme of your ATC.
How random is that? 😉
