Talk about serendipity! My next hybrid chunky page was for Su and her theme was Weathered Beauty. Can you guess what I did? Since I was already boiling books, I stuck a few more remnants into the pot thinking I would be able to use something for Su's chunky page.
I selected one 4 x 4 panel and wanted to create a Haiku poem for my page. I am not a huge poetry person, but I started out by writing short phrases relating to weathered beauty. Elegant decay, discarded, rotting, abandoned...In the end, I came up with two poems that I liked, but this one suited Su's theme the best:
Rotting and exposed
Revealing nature's beauty
The magic unfolds
I printed my Haiku poem onto vellum and embellished it with a twig I found on my morning walk. I used wire to attach the poem to a smaller 3 x 3 panel. I then used foam mounts to place the 3 x 3 onto the 4 x 4 to complete my chunky page for Su. I chose not to cover the leaf impression you see on the back of the page. Boiling books is a lot like Christmas. You never know what you are going to get until after the boiling is done and you open up the pages!
