I first painted the block of wood black on the back and sides then proceeded to approach the surface like I do my handmade cards, with fabric, decorative paper, images and ephemera. As I love Joseph Campbell's thinking, I chose one of his quotes for this piece. It helped bring it together for me. I put a hanger on the back just in case but it could also sit on a shelf.
I'm pleased with the outcome and am encouraged to do the other 8 pieces. I would love your feed back so let me know what you think. Thanks and have a creative week end.
