This page for example, became this after much playing around. The right hand side was originally blank and then I did a Purell transfer of a photo I had taken of some letters to my father from his family in Germany around 1930 or so. I just wanted the writing to be graphic when I did it and had no clue what I was doing next. When I was looking at the pages like this one day the photo I had taken of the Reservoir popped into my mind and over the next couple of days it got transformed. The left side is half of a Gelliplate print that I didn't particularly love, so I included it into the book.
Often I tear off things that I have glued to a page thinking I liked them. This next page is one of the first that I did in this journal and after a while I came to not like it at all, At first it looked like this:
This was in late December and I was marginally pleased with it. You will see that the next page has also changed a LOT since then but that is for another day.
This is what that page looks like now:
I tore off the little Siamese figures, and the magazine cut out girl also. I like this better but I am not sure if it is done.
Since there is a little page in the middle I will show you how it looks with that page open also
That is where we are on those two pages right now. I will turn the page again tomorrow...
