I started with a base layer of a paper where I did several rubbings. Pictured above shows the detail of an ornate frame that I rubbed. I used white crayon on white paper and then did a wash of watered down black acrylic paint. The repeating dots seen in the first picture was created by rubbing a large flat lego piece.
As I look at this little spread I think I'll go back and add some journal writing to it. I'm saving that for another day. Quite likely, I'll paste on some more layers. I love the layered look.
Go rummage around your piles of papers and see what you can layer together.
