After that I glued on some handmade paper with black imagery which looked quite graphic and that led me to grab the medium stencil from March 2014 Stencilgirl Club to add more geometric images using white paint.
Still following the theme I grabbed some under paper on which I had been trying out a stamp. It's a foam one bought quite some years ago from the Aftrican Fabric shop, made by Trapsuutjies Textielverf. It apparently symbolizes friendship and interdependence. I found two quotations (both from Flow Magazine calendars) and glued them on, together with the image of the woman walking towards her new beginning.
The page needed more and finally I realized I wanted to write on the pages. I used the text of the song Make a New Beginning by Tracy Chapman. I hadn't realized till I started to write them down just how appropriate they are for the world at the moment.
